oh no you didn't!

The location: The cafeteria of a private substance abuse rehab hospital. Lunch time. Macaroni and cheese day.

The players: Me and some male patients of the hospital.

The scene: The young and reasonably attractive intern is at the condiments table, gathering some napkins for her home made rice and beans lunch. A few of the male patients are eying the intern and snickering. The intern looks at them, acknowledging that whatever they are saying is NOT appropriate. A male patient then approaches the intern and says "Congratulations!" The intern, puzzled, asks what the male patient intends to congratulate her on. He responds "Oh...I heard you were pregnant and I wanted to congratulate you on the baby."

"I am not pregnant, maybe you heard wrong," says the intern, looking down at her mid-section. She is wearing an empire waist blue dress to knee length and tan cowboy boots. Underneath the dress, she dons a pair of SPANX! that slims and shapes and should NOT suggest any sort of pregnancy bump.


AND CUT...

It could be that the patients either like her, and haven't moved past the hair-pulling tendencies, or they're trying to damage her ego cause they're mean.

Or it was a joke played on the patient who congratulated her. I don't think he knew she wasn't pregnant.

They're being rude and just joking to see if they can get a reaction out of you. Some guys say or do mean things to entertain themselves and others. You don't look pregnant, so there's no reason why they would think that. Unless someone else really did start a rumor for whatever reason and thinks you are pregnant even though you don't look it.

funny you should mention spanx today...i bought a pair recently and was gonna wear them for the first time today...but I COULDN'T GET THEM ON!! what does it say about my body that i can't even get my spanx on?? and then - AND THEN - when i looked in the mirror after i got dressed, it also appeared that i was pregnant...and i was sucking in my stomach.

so...i guess the moral of the story is...things can always be worse!!

Firstly:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo heads will roll. If I was there anyway.

Secondly: Men will never understand fashion.

Thirdly: Other people are shit-heads. You can quote me on that.

I'm with Tricia on this one.

What idiots.

I'm ashamed to say mild fun-poking always works on me, though. Only if it's kind-hearted, obviously, but still. ;)
