I know I am but what are you?

A friend and co-worker asked me this afternoon if I felt as bad as I looked. What, I ask you, are you supposed to say to a question like that? The truth is, I don’t feel well, but I wasn’t aware I was sporting the death-warmed-over look today. Sure, my hair is getting a little shaggy on top thanks to its superhuman growth rate, compliments of prenatal vitamins. And yes, there is that giant zit on my cheek that refuses to be concealed. But I didn’t skulk from the house this morning thinking, “God, I wish I had a Scream mask.” Her concern for my health and well-being was lost in my reaction to her observation of my appearance. It’s hard to say, “Yeah, thanks for asking. I’m feeling sort of droopy,” when all you can think is, “Uh! That’s so mean. What do you mean I look bad?” I’m going home to my animals, who are happy to see me even first thing in the morning when I appear to have been electrocuted during the night, and to my Reece’s Egg-Pumpkin, because chocolate does not discriminate.

  1. Well, apparently being PG with girls makes you look hideously ill. That is an old wives tale that someone told a friend of mine (in a backhanded way telling her she looked like crap, I think). Of course, she knows she’s having a boy, so that’s neither here nor there. However, I am choosing to take this as a SIGN!

    I think I am giving myself a new challenge: finding a SIGN in anything that you blog about for the next week. 🙂

  2. Thanks, Jen. Takes some of the pressure off of me! I quit temping after ovulation was concerned, and I’m staying as busy as possible so that I won’t look for signs. You go right ahead and obsess on my behalf!

  3. open mouth, insert foot!
    not many people think before they speak these days. i think you’re beautiful though! zits or no zits!

  4. If, in fact, you want me to obsess for you (my Internet sarcas-o-meter is not working too well right now), you need to give me something to work with, dear!!!!!

    Love ya, toots, and 110% in your corner!
