Just to mess with them....

Every couple of days a similar story happens ....

Tonight while at the grocery store check out lane, one of those automatic coupons printed out. Mine printed out one for infant formula. He asked if I wanted it. "Yes", I replied. He asked if I had a little one at home. I told him I had one on the way.
"Oh, really? When are you due?", he asked.
"November 1st". I said.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. I know, I'm so mean, but it's just too funny to me to mess with people on this one. Because what happens next EVERY time, is they look to my stomach with a confused gaze and politely say congratulations.

So while I know I've put on a few "pregnancy pounds" during the adoption, I don't think I look like I'm "due" in 12 days. So, I proceed to tell them that I'm adopting from Ethiopia. They usually feel rather awkward at this point.

Very fun.
