Quick post because I should be analyzing data, but this struck me as funny this morning so I have to share.
I am now obviously pregnant in almost everything I wear, and people notice quite frequently. Walking the halls people tend to look to the belly first, then up to the face, then smile. Wait, when I said people I really mean women, men don't tend to notice as much for whatever reason. So I've gotten used to this and try to smile back instead of just looking simple and confused. Normally I have to monitor the surface in front of me so as not to trip (years of dance lessons but still no grace) but in the halls I'm able to look up at people.
That said, this morning I gave in to the decaff iced coffee cravings I've been having and picked one up on my walk to school. This time of year as the weather gets nice (we have a high of 68 today!!!) iced coffee is a typical staple for me I just love it, but its more the cream and sugar than the caffeine apparently because switching to decaff works just as well. Anyway, I'm walking up the sidewalk with my decaff iced coffee and I notice the smiles I usually get have been replaced by looks of horror. Holy judgmental people (oops again just women)!!! Now they spot the belly and on their way up to the face spot the iced coffee and eyes go wide with fright. Wow, I guess I will have to enjoy my little indulgence in the safety of my own home and not in view of the judgmental public. Whoa baby!
Side note: Someone asked me how I knew it was decaff and I was very surprised by this. Decaff tastes totally different (and not as good, but slightly masked by copious amounts of cream). Please tell me normal tasters are able to tell the difference too and this isn't just my crazy taste buds.
