Things people have said to me:

People say stupid things to me. Here are things people have said to me that made me laugh. Some will be left anonymous so as not to embarrass the people I actually know.

1. Check out lady at Target, while I was still pregnant. (To Jared in high pitch voice) "Aren't you excited? You're going to have a little brother!"

2. Creepy bum outside 24 hour CVS. "You must have money, you have a baby. Spare some change for my bus fare?"

3. "Where did your belly go?" - Stupid blonde girl I used to have classes with whose name I can't recall, said while I was holding Oliver, then 2 weeks old.

4. "Its almost like he is a tiny human being." - Woman waiting at pharmacy.

5. "Nursing hurts your nips like a bitch, doesn't it!?" - Large black woman with a grill, while I was nursing O in public.

6. "I read your blog." -Alain, at Oliver's first party.

7. "Will that just fall off later, or what?" - Friend commenting on the uncircumsized nature of my son's penis.

8. "You know that means he'll be a porn star later, right?" -Separate friend commenting on uncircumsized son's penis.

9. "Its amazing nipples can do that and not break." - Relative, while I was pumping breastmilk.

10. "Isn't it great to know that there is life in your breasts?" - Target check out lady, after asking if I was breastfeeding. I don't exactly understand what she meant by that.

11. "I call that one Sally" - Jared, after I asked him which breast's turn it was.

12. "He looks like Grover Cleveland without the mustache." - Kind Old Man.

  1. it can be frustrating how little some friends and family know about the natural, healthy state of a male's body, hey?!

    Though, as you illustrated, kind of funny at the same time. :)

    I do think its great that you didn't let any of the myths and misconceptions out there convince you to have the procedure done to your baby.

    its really not an area where you want someone taking a knife, and even less so an area where you want someone to cut part of you off!
