So, we all get inappropriate comments, but here's something I just had to share.
I'm in a wedding next weekend, so while the menfolk (Peter included) were having their bachelor party, us ladies and the babies met at the cookie shop, then did a late lunch before hanging out for a few hours. (We'd already had a bridal tea, bridal shower, and bachelorette party. This was just a fun afternoon!) So, several folks bought cookies and divided them and put them in the middle of the table to share. As we are sitting there, talking and eating, there are two women behind us; one is probably in her mid-40s, the other in her late-50s to early-60s. They get up to leave and have to walk by our table. The older of the women stops and says that she has 8 year old b/g twin grandchildren and asks how old the kids are. Then she looks at our table (keep in mind, there are 5 of us plus Bobby and Maya), and says "You guys must really like cookies." Really? It's a cookie shop. And, if five of us are eating a dozen cookies, that's like, 2.5 cookies a piece!
But that isn't the kicker. So, her friend says "Oh, I have 5 year old twins. This is such a great age." I smile, say they are fun, and, as these two are about out the door, turn back to our table. The older of the two lets her friend pass and then says "At one time, twins were just so special, but now I see them everywhere." I say that, yes, we've met quite a number of twins when we are out. (Although, even though I didnt say it, I think they are still special!) She replies, "Well, it's because you girls are waiting so long to get pregnant." And then leaves!
You girls? Our table ranged in ages from 18-early 30s. Or was that for twin mothers in general? But since she directed it in my direction, I actually said (albeit after the door closed) "I'm 30! It's not like I'm old!" We got a riot out of it, but geez! Who thinks it is okay to say that? Funny of funnies... I dont know if she was implying that older women are naturally more likely to release more than one egg and, thus, have twins, or if she was implying that older women have reproductive issues and due to medication or IVF are more likely to mother multiples. I'm assuming the latter, but I'll never know!
Maybe I should cover up my gray hair afterall! (Just kidding...)
I'm struggling to find time to post. I'm packing up stuff and loading it during my free time, which isnt much, and right now, and packing up the library where my desk and stuff was. So, once I get stuff organized and dont feel like I have so much to do, I'll get back to posting. As it is, I'm cantoring the 7:30 Mass and needed to sit at my computer and listen to my music, so I had a few free moments to post and catch up.
