Peasant or Pregnant?

When I crashed my car, the gentleman I ever so rudely rear-ended was amazingly gracious. He declined to take my information, allowing my insurance to remain oblivious to the danger I am on the road. He was driving a truck, so the damage to his vehicle, was minimal, but check out the damage to my poor car, it is obvious I had to cause some damage to his. Again, he didn’t take my information, get my name, nothing. A kind, Have a Nice Day, and I left the scene of the accident scot-free.

It was only later after I had some time to absorb what had happened, slow my heart rate, quit panicking, that I thought of a reason.

He must have thought I was pregnant! Some wild-eyed pregnant chick just slammed into his bumper, causing him to freak out and think of all the horrific dangers of wimmins driving cars.

Today, I wore the same shirt I had on on the day of the wreck. When I went to the W.C., I did a double take in the mirror. I wonder if I am pregnant when I am wearing it, God only knows what other people think!

So, do I get rid of it or tuck it into my closet to wear as a maternity top when I actually am, with child? I only know that I shouldn't wear it any longer!

Anyone else swear off these tops? They sure are nice to hide the muffin top. However, I would rather not be asked when I am due. Especially by myself.

I can't swear off anything that hides the muffin top or the donut above it. I usually have trouble with the fit of those tops for some reason.

You couls always utilize the stork parking places at Kr*ger?

I swore these off because I believe you have to flaunt your assets, and one of mine is a tee-tiny waist...and these shirts totally hide that and my lower belly fat turns into BABY BELLY. So yeah, I feel your pain.

I wish I could blame how often I'm asked my due date or if I know whether I'm having a boy or a girl on a specific shirt. And I wish I was kidding about that. It happens fairly frequently.

But I try to look on the bright side - at least people think I'm fat for a reason....
