Sometimes I let a silly remark ruin my day.
I went for a work lunch, there were seven women all 5-15 years younger then me. One of them was highly pregnant and I met a new girl that will replace her for a year.
I was the only one that did not know the new girl and I had met the pregnant one only twice before.
So I used opportunity to congratulate both of them - one for getting a new job, the other for a beautiful reason why she is leaving the company for a year.
The pregnant one replied: "You can congratulate me when this one comes out. For now there is no reason for congratulations - everybody can get pregnant. The problem is how to push the baby out!"
All of them laughed.
I guess it is funny. When you equal getting pregnant = sleeping with a man and when it happens as soon as you wish it to happen, yes, then it is funny. Otherwise not.
I try not to let silly people ruin my day. That stupid woman did ruin it, luckily only for one day.
Today I had a therapeutic walk & talk date with my beloved dog and with a friend of mine (who is childless because she never found the love of her life). I made this photo on our walk through the forest, it was just lovely.
