D is helping his mother with computer problems (over the phone). He is the most patient person I know. But even he is starting to lose it, so I removed myself from the scene and enjoyed some watermelon in the kitchen. There is also a container of fresh pineapple in the fridge, in honor of Liz. It has not been desecrated yet.

I've been keeping track of the "twins" inquiry. Three cashiers converged on me at the grocery store and pelted me with: Any day now? One or two? You're big! I also got accosted by a pre-op trannie in the elevator yesterday who said, "Twins?"

"No."

"That's a big boy! I can tell! Hahaha!"

"You look pretty freakin' weird yourself." (I didn't say this, just thought it).

Anyway, it turns out that people have asked me if I'm having twins EVERY DAY this week except one day. I think it was Tuesday. Sometimes I get asked twice in one day. That happened on two days.

I never want to hear the word "twins" again after I am pregnant. I don't care if it refers to babies, breasts, my sisters, or the Twin Cities. Never. Ever. Again.

What *is* it with all these insensitive people? I always wish I had a good comeback in situations like that (never do though).

You totally should have said that to him! That made me laugh out loud.

Also, not many people can say "I also got accosted by a pre-op trannie in the elevator yesterday."

Fresh pineapple? I'll be there in 4-5 hours.

Them: "Are you having twins?"

You: "No. Are you? You're huge."

See how well that goes over.

I have a feeling you're going to pull a Heidi Klum: E will be born, and in no time, you'll have your pre-baby body back. Then all this will be a distant memory that you'll laugh about.

Roxanne - it's true. i never know what to say either.

Liz - one of the benefits of living in New York ;) all the pineapple is gone now :(

Kitkat - that's awesome.

Kitkat is right. Within two months of giving birth you'll be getting glared at by all of the chunky moms like me. :-)

Then the new annoying comments will start. "Are you sure the baby is getting enough nutrition? You're awfully thin."

A good superhero power to have would be the ability to seal people's lips shut.

I agree!
