Grocery store — 0. Pregnant tum — 1.

Lovely, older lady in front of me in the grocery store to the cashier (15ish items in cart): She can go ahead of me.

Lovely, older lady in front of me in the grocery store to me: You can go ahead of me (smile).

Me (6 items in basket): Oh, it’s ok. I can wait. I don’t mind.

Older lady in front of me in the grocery store:

You go ahead of me. I don’t want you to have your baby right here in the store.

Me: (thinking: Do I look that giant?! That my baby is going to plop right out, here in the aisle?) Oh, I still have 3 months to go. None of us want the baby coming right this moment.

Lady who is letting me cut her in line at the grocery store: Oh, well you come ahead of me.

Me: Are you sure? (and okay… I think I will).
