overheard this week at church

"So when's your baby due? "

"Actually, I'm not pregnant. "

"Oh. But you look so...SKINNY! "

Don't you hate the taste of your foot in your mouth? I know that taste all too well.

Lesson for us all: NEVER, EVER ask a woman if she's pregnant. EVER. I mean EVER. I thank heaven that I was only eavesdropping, and that I was not the party asking, or the party that got asked.

Yikes! That's never good! I too am glad you were just eavesdropping!

Dee popped in to surprise the Eastern Heroes on Thanksgiving a few years ago. There was Stie with an unannounced but pregnant belly. Everyone was afraid of the foot in the mouth, so nobody commented until finally Gabi asked "Is there something you want to tell us?" Would you have EVER told??

Stie said...

Yeah, I like to think I would have told...it's just hard to announce news that SHOULD make you happy but doesn't necessarily do it. We didn't want to tell until WE were happy about it. Looking at her now, can't believe I ever doubted. That was a funny weekend!
