Have you ever had a Christmas Season where.....? I know that we could all answer that question, but let me tell you, my holiday season is drooping down. I must say first though that i am really all right with what has happened. I can see the confusion on one aspect, but the other is just downright depressing. At the progressive dinner I was mistaken for being one of those beautiful ladies that was pregnant. Believe it or not I understand the confusion as it seems that every time we turn around there is another pregnancy announced. I am so totally thrilled for those women and thankful it is not me. We laughed at the time and honestly that hadn't bothered me. As some of you know my quick replies can sometimes take over, but all i could think of to say was: "No, sweetheart, I am not pregnant...just fat." The poor woman that asked me just about fell over when I threw that answer at her.
Today though I hit an all new low. A woman came in, looked at me and said: "Gee! I thought you retired!" She had mistaken me for my mother-in-law who is now in her 60's. That one I did have to say "Ouch!" I have to admit that I really do love my age. I am so much happier than I was in my twenties. I am only 36. It is pretty young. My kids are getting into the teen years and although that is a little nerve wracking I can handle it so much more than when I was in the baby years.
I have to admit that these insults are piling up and it is getting me starting on thinking of another book I'd like to write. Perhaps the ten worst things to say to another woman!!! Until then Botox & Lipo anyone?!?!?!
