I am so embarrassed. I'm so embarrassed for her.

A young couple, repeat guests here on their anniversary. I'm usually so careful about this, but I had never seen her wearing a revealing tight spaghetti strap camisole. Tall, big boned gal, but not fat. I could just swear she was pregnant! A big protruding mid section!

I got part of my statement out...."are we..." as I was looking at her midsection.

OH NO!!!! She wasn't pregnant!!!

It was very awkward, but we got through it. Even if they are ready to pop, I'm NEVER going to ask again!!!!!!!

TOO Funny!!!

We've got a mantra for that....never ask a guest a personal question. It is amazing how the few times we have forgotten that rule we have opened Pandora's box.

Did you look like your avatar?  LOL.  I think your saving grace is that they are repeat guests - probably much more relaxed the second time around and comfortable with you.  I'm sure everything is fine.

I did! Except I'm sure I was turning beet red.

Tonight an obvious pregnant woman checked in. I SAID NOTHING!

You need an auralpedeologist. (A foot in mouth doctor.)

Important rule. Never ask or assume a women is pregnant. It could just be a basketball!

BD I think we have all done or will do this at one point or another.  Once it has happened it stays fresh on your mind every time you think you see a bun in the oven.

I had a neighbor who people asked many times the when are you due, etc. She DID look about 1 week from delivering - but was long past time to worry about such things. She just carried a basketball under her boobs. Ooops! It happens.

(Psst: since I am still carrying my son 40 years later, I try to not wear tight garments that emphasize that fact. What I want to know, is how do men get away with looking 10 months preggers and they are given the OK?)
