  1. Why the hell do people ask strangers if they are pregnant? If they literally see a woman going into labor on the sidewalk then it is an acceptable question.
    This is an amazingly clever post! Well done, it made me laugh even though it’s clearly coming from a sore spot, how are you so good at that?

    1. Thanks, Susan ๐Ÿ™‚ It always stuns me when strangers ask me if I pregnant. Usually it’s other women and you’d think they’d realize that it sucks when they are wrong about it.

      I don’t know if it’s healthy but I think making fun of myself is my defense mechanism :/

      1. Also “Are you sick?” because I’ve been asked that at work when I just wasn’t wearing makeup for once.

        :/ I don’t know if this is true but I think it’s good that you’re at least expressing your worries in some way instead of bottling it up or am I making up fake psychology stuff?
