(Belly) laugh of the day

24 Jul

My boss of the past three years is retiring this week; he’s been a really great boss and I’m sad to see him go, as are many others in our organization.  Today, a number of us went for lunch at the Klondike Rib & Salmon for a send-off lunch. 

I ate the food I ordered, plus stole fries off of other people’s plates (because I was well-behaved and ordered salad as my side).  As I’ve said before, being 5 months pregnant leaves me with a lot less room for food.  By the end of the meal, I had eaten rather more than I should have and was feeling slightly uncomfortable. 

Two other women walked in as I was exiting the restaurant, rubbing my swollen belly and moaning to my co-worker about over-eating.  One of women looked and my belly and quipped, “Woah!  You really ate a lot!”

    Ha! That’s hilarious! When I was 7 mos pregnant we went to a nice restaurant, got seated and when our waitress came up she gave us the drink specials. I ordered water and she asked me, “Are you sure you don’t want a martini? Their wonderful!” I pulled my tummy out to show her the full view and told her no thanks! She was embarrassed 🙂
    Sending you belly rubs and Happy POW!

    HA! Now that is something you’ll remember for a long time. It’s great when you look “pregnant” instead of just “large.” Eat up!

    You’ll have to remember to tell the little bambino all about how you ate too much and poof…baby.

    You should put that one in the baby book!

    My husband looks five months pregnant when he stuffs himself. I can’t believe how far his middle section expands.

    Thought #1) Hey, who are you to deny Nugget fries when he/she demands them?

    Thought #2) Reading Chelle’s post, you can tell she’s been off work for the past year…

    Now that’s funny! And I’m willing to bet that as soon as it happened…you thought to yourself…”This is one for the blog!”

    ha ha!!
