She Said With a Smile...

So I walked in the office this afternoon and one of the girls smiled and said hello. I smiled and said hello back. Then she kept smiling at me, so I, feeling awkward, smiled back. (These situations tend to happen when two people have limited words they can use to communicate to each other.) Then she points to her stomach and says to me, "You're getting bigger."

What do you say to that?! These aren't the typical manners you come across in western culture, but it was hardly a compliment. Even the toothpick-thin Cambodians are worried about their weight. I knew that the endless experimenting with new foods was beginning to catch up to me, but I didn't think it was that noticeable!

Good thing I've picked up running in the mornings...

Did you respond with "Screw you bitch?" She probably wouldn't know what it meant and it would make you feel better :-)

haha. Okay, I almost snorted at this. Just remember: It happens to the best of us. So strap on your running shoes and easily take off the extra by doing something you love. (PS: Your pictures don't show that you've gotten bigger. I think it's all in your head.)

Thats kinda funny that even happened. As I was reading I thought maybe she thought you were pregnant and was happy for you...
