Foot in Mouth for the Kazillionth Time

Major goof speaking today.

In the Break Room, I asked a teacher if the baby is due after Christmas, cuz then I would have time to make a nice baby blankie.
She went very very white, and said, Um, No, she’s just “feeling big” today, then scurried into the Ladies Room.

I’m not sure I will be able to look her in the eye next time I’m with a student in her class.

Another room occupant said not to worry, anybody could mess up.

It’s not the first time I have been mistaken, and Yeah, I remember once upon a time in my Thirties when someone asked me pretty much the same question cuz I was gaining weight real fast, but gheezsh, the whole rest of the school year stretches ahead.

We ask so much forgiveness of others around us.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    My heart just dropped a few notches reading this. I couldn’t imagine doing that and then having to say hi the next day.

    Oddly enough my coworked and I were just chatting about this today. My statement to him was, “As a guy I will never talk to a woman about her pregnancy. It’s too risky for the little reward if I’m right.”

    But I could easily make that mistake. The thing that has so far kept me from it is having my wife come home crying because someone asked her.

    I have done that and also had it done to me. It will pass. So just remember we have all placed that tasty foot into that some what large mouth at one time or another and lived on without a broken friendship.

    Been there done that. It will stay with you for a while. Just be extra nice and she’ll forgive you.
