Reunion faux pas

So we're in Florida for my ten year reunion, right? Check out this little
convo I had last night in the bathroom:

Me: Hi!
Classmate with pregnant belly: Hi.
Me: When are you due?
Classmate who now hates me: I'm not.
Me: Oh, well you still look darling. I'm sorry.
Classmate who wants to kill me: silent

My good friend Gail was in the stall and heard this all go down and was
trying not to laugh while I hurried and washed my hands and got the heck
outta there.

Turns out my other friend Katrina asked her the same thing. So I don't feel
as bad, but then I feel worse for her that it happened more than once. In
my defense, her shirt was not helping her cause. And as a woman, I know
that you have to be pretty certain before you ask a question like that. And
I thought I was.

I pretty much avoided her the rest of the weekend.

Not popular then, not popular now...

That totally sucks but it's pretty funny.

Jessica said...

Ha Ha, Karen that really sucks, I hear ya on not saying anything until you are pretty darn certain, poor girl if two of you thought she was.

Emmy said...

Opps. Maybe she really is but just doesn't want people to know, I mean if at least two people asked her that. :)

Lara said...

OUCH. I'd hate you, too. ;-)

We are 3. said...

Uhh... sucks to be both of you in that situation!

Yours, Mine, &, Crazy Daisy said...

Oh my! I thought only men did that! Must have been especially hard coming from cute little adorable you! :)

Samantha said...

Man, that sucks. I know people who have been asked that, while not pregnant, and they like never forgot it. But...never thin people....oh dang, that was mean.

I guess it goes to show, never, ever ask unless the woman mentions it or they are on the laboring bed pushing.
