Some of the sayings on this list are from people who I love dearly and I want you to know I harbor no ill will. The past is the past. (And to those people, once those words left your mouth, they became fair game!)
This is a post of some of the craziest things ever said to me in descending order.
6. "What happened to your eye?" - The Grocery Cashier, the lady walking her dog, the new dental hygienist, my former psych patient, the mail carrier, the kid at the playground, etc.
Little kids, you get a pass. But adults, okay, yes, I have a birthmark underneath my left eye. IT IS A BIRTHMARK, NOT A BLACK EYE. It is wine colored, not black and blue. If it really was a black eye, way to be sensitive and ask me about it. Geez Napoleon!
5. "Are there two in there? There must be two in there." - Grandmother when I was pregnant not only the first time but the second time as well
Because you gave birth to my fantastic mom, I will cut you some slack. Here's a tip. No pregnant women likes to hear someone ask her that. Pregnant women feel self conscious enough as it is and are worried about so many things without people wondering "Dang, she is so huge! She must have a couple of babies up in there!"
4. "Are you gonna fix your hair?" - Mom, on our annual girls' trip, AS WE ARE LEAVING THE ROOM TO GO OUT
Uh? What the what? I think this one is self-explanatory.
3. "L can stay with you." - J, in response to me asking if he would stay little and stay with me forever
I was just teasing him, but ouch, that stung a little. I know he will grow up (probably way too fast), and be out of here before I know it. And that is what I want him to do. Become a God-loving, compassionate, hard-working, independent person and to have a life for himself. (But it still makes my heart ache thinking of him not being under my roof.) *Sniff, sniff.*
2. "My girlfriend doesn't like it when I flirt with you. She knows I like you." - Guy friend many years ago, pre-marriage days
- Yeah, I know. You may have to read this one again.
And for the numero uno! (Drum roll please.....)
1. "Isn't that for skinny people?" - K, my sister-in-law, in response to me telling her I have Graves' Disease (i.e. overactive thyroid)
- Yep, this one needs no explanation.
PS I really love my family! I wrote previous posts about my mom, Tino, and my sister-in-law, K, and how I love them lots. You can read about them here and here.
