I know I have written before how EVERYWHERE that we go nearly EVERYONE feels the need to comment. Usually it's fun and the comments, though repetitive, are innocent and decent. Well all that changed today when BOB and I and Rubi were out on a walk with E squared. I was BOBin away to my 80s music on the i*pod and I see a minivan slow to a stop and the window roll down. My first instinct was to pretend like I didn't notice and keep on walking since I didn't recognize this person -- but then I started thinking "what if it's a kidnapper and that just pisses them off" (i have this weird fear of kidnappers -- especially ones in vans). So I pull my earphones off and it was a lady with a tooth missing just off center to the left and the following mini conversation happened:
lady with off centered missing tooth: oh are those twins?
me: yes they are
lady with off centered missing tooth: how cute -- are they boys?
me: nope both girls (now this is a common question even though we could not fit another pink item on or near them)
lady with off centered missing tooth: are they yours?
me: of course
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? WHAT KIND OF STUPID QUESTION IS THAT? (i did not say these things (notice they are not in bold) but it's what I was thinking. Along with her really being a kidnapper. I mean after a question like that. What was I supposed to think?)
I may be infertile but I'm no baby thief.
