Most of you may not know this but I am a waitress and Bartender at a Steakhouse. The reason I mention that is for the purpose of this story.
She tells me yesterday that she sat me...and that she was pregnant...very pregnant that is. Of Course I'm annoyed - sometimes I don't mind at all waiting on pregnant people it just depends on the kind of day/week/month I'm having..but I was pretty cool yesterday. When I went over, I do what I ALWAYS do when I'm waiting on someone pregnant..I check to see if they are married. I know it sounds nuts but if they are it makes me feel a little better. Her and her friend ordered and I noticed she was HUGE..now I don't mean that in a mean way just an observation. I said to the my friend, the hostess, I think she is having twins..either that or she is about to give birth any minute. She said I think she is having a boy cause she is carrying so low. Neither of us wanted to ask her really? What was I going to say "are you having twins" and then she says no and it looks like I asked her cause I think shes huge! hahah
So..I said to her while I was wrapping her food up..Do you know what you are having and she said TWIN BOYS - and only has 5 more weeks to go! ha! We were both right..so I told her the conversation my friend and I were having and she was laughing...she was very sweet actually.
So I walked away and I was not upset - not in the least bit actually...I decided why should I be upset - I don't know her life story? How do I know that she had not been trying for two years? How do I know this wasn't her final IVF cycle and it worked...I know NOTHING about how she got to where she was...so instead I decided to just let it go and think shes pretty dam lucky and move on with my day.
That night (last night) I found out that there is a chance one of the girls that I work with might be pregnant...she is young - very young and not married...Then I figured after all I just told you above - I was slapped in the face. So now, IF she is pregnant (and there is a GREAT chance) then I have to watch her belly grow every time I work with her...just when you think you are moving on past hurt...something else shows up to let you know you were an idiot for thinking you could!
The hits keep on coming....I am hoping they end soon...I'm so bruised I hardly recognize myself.
