"Oh, so you're Pregnant?"

Don't get your hopes up - we aren't expecting. I do, however, have another "Mare Moment" to share. So, if you don't mind, try to follow me.

I went to get a massage tonight. It was great. I'd been looking forward to it all day. My back was killing me from packing and Reid told me to take time to go. So, I'm sitting in the "Tranquility Room" filling out my forms when I came across the line where I would fill in my occupation - I wrote, "None." I continued on and thought nothing more about it.

Then my "Massage Consultant" (we'll call him MC) comes in to talk to me about customizing my masage. Wonderful, right? No. He starts to read my paperwork and gets stuck at "None" for occupation. Here's how the conversation played out:

MC: "'None?' Does that mean you're a student?"
Me: "No, I'm not in school and I don't work."
MC: "Oh, so you were laid off.
Me: "Nope. I stay home."
MC: "I see. How many kids do you have?"
Me: "No, I don't have any kids. I just don't work. Basically, a stay at home wife."
MC: "Oh, so you're pregnant."
Me: "NO!"

Hahaha! I love it! And, I can totally understand that conversation! I'm glad you got the massage - you so deserve it!

OH Mare. Just you wait. When you do have kids, people will say "that's great that you can do that. you should be so thankful." Implying that maybe I am not grateful, and/or that we are rolling in so much dough it's a breeze for me to stay home (neither of which are true). Hope you were able to laugh instead of punch the guy.
