i was asked 4 times if i am pregnant today. wow. i mean, i know i'm a chubber & all... but seriously? i was under the impression that its not kosher to ask someone if they're pregnant or not.
Reason #1. i drank a dr pepper early this morning. cause the week before school starts requires that sort of thing. when our lunch didn't start until well after 12.30, i was jittery. mainly cause i'm usually off of caffeine now. but it could also have been because 12.30 is a late lunch for me! i made a side comment to kim that i was feeling jittery & someone who overheard that asked me if i was pregnant. um, no.
Reason #2. at lunch, they opened the pop machines & i grabbed a barq's root beer. someone asked why, i said i didn't want more caffeine. someone else said, "i thought barq's has caffeine." not in utah, i explained. i still looked on the can though to make sure i was right... someone sees me looking for caffeine on the can & asks me if i'm pregnant. um, no.
Reason #3. after lunch, i announced to kim i have to pee. cause i have now had 2 sodas & a whole water bottle to drink. someone overhears me telling kimmy that i have to pee & asks me if i'm pregnant. two lessons learned here. don't announce things to kimmy, especially regarding my bodily functions - most definitely not when others can hear & also, maybe i need to lay off the drinking. but on the pregnant issue - still -um, no.
Reason #4. i needed to meet with a man teacher at my school this afternoon on school stuff. we talked about working while we were both in the workroom. i had crap in my hands that i needed to drop off in my classroom... i said i'd meet him down in his room in a few minutes. when i got down there, he wasn't there. so i went and sat in the hall, waiting for him. this is the 2nd day back to work for teachers. yesterday i worked 12 hours & a lot of it was moving furniture, etc. hard, mentally exhausting, long a$$ days. by nearly 5 this afternoon, i needed to sit on the floor. my back hurts, my feet hurt... when i got up, apparently i "waddled" cause he asked me if i was pregnant. um, no.
I AM JUST CHUBBY! PLEASE, EVERYONE MAKE NOTE: WHEN I AM PREGNANT, I'LL TELL YOU. DEAL?
and yes, every single time someone asked me today, my response was "nope, i'm just chubby!" and yes, people felt stupid & started backpedaling, and yes, i'm ok with their stupid feelings & attempted cover ups. but no, i didn't get all feelings hurty. just slightly irritated by #4.
