once again

*ADDENDUM, added 8/14/09: Dear Person, Thank you for taking the time to call me tonight to apologize, with the explanation that you sincerely confused me for the other Jennie who used to work there, and who is, indeed expecting another baby. It really, REALLY means a lot to me that you would take time out of your evening to call. Friends? Fondly, ~j5t

Dear Person,

You're friendly enough. Really, I know we had our disagreements when we worked together, but we're adults, right? Right.

So . . . here's the thing. You and I don't talk very often, other than a brief greeting/exchange when I'm at the salon, and as such, we don't know much about each others' lives. I'll break it down: Don't tell my friend that I'm pregnant. Furthermore, don't tell her that I'm due in October. Frills? Three months away? Not that it's any of your business, but I'm done with that stage of my life. Withal, I lost 15 pounds last month.



Fondly,
~j5t

i know the sting of vicious gossip all too personally. and when it bites someone i love--a child of mine or a good friend--i seriously want to hurt someone.

i want to hurt someone.

instead (but only because i don't have a name and address), i'm going to say Yay! you!! Keep up the great work (especially keep working out with me--you do me good, girl).

Yay! you!!

So yesterday at church I had this conversation with several people:

Person: "Wow! I didn't even know you were pregnant and all the sudden you're huge! You must be due any day now! How exciting!"

Me (wondering how last week I didn't look pregnant and this week I'm gonna pop any second): Uh, I guess the tummy's a little bigger today yeah. But I'm not due til December.

Person: September? Really it must be the beginning of September - you're really sticking out there.

Me: No. DECember.

Person: Oh.......uh.......... well....... your hair looks nice today (as they are running away)

The first time it happened I thought wow, that sucked. But after the third and fourth conversation I was ready to go home and eat some Ben & Jerry's. If I'm already huge I may as well enjoy it.

I nominate Sue B to pass around a meal sign up. I say you screw them and make them bring you serve you dinner.

b. said...

I agree with La Yen.

Then start carrying around a doll wrapped up in a blanket. Name it blanket.

That'll make 'em talk.

sue-donym said...

Sign up sheet. Check.

PLEASE do what b said. I DARE you.

La Yen said...

I double-dog dare you.

Queen Scarlett said...

Can I triple dog dare you...

People are crazy.

Don't forget to have the "sisters" come in and clean. After your c-section I mean.
You'll be down a while.

Seriously? Some people are short brain cells.

Ok, so how'd you lose 15 pounds in a month? Do tell...

Logan said...

That is LAME!! I kinda wanna know who it was though... racking my brain... probably not a good idea.

Congrats on the 15 lbs! That is awesome, I wish I could do that about now.
