Ok, I wanted to share my best WTF comments. My friend’s husband, Joe, has been something of a gold mine for funny (to me at least) comments. It comes from a good place, I know, but is also f%$cking annoying because it feels condescending as hell.
Me (while eating hummus they’d made): Mmmm, this is good! So garlicky.
Joe (alarmed): CAN YOU HAVE GARLIC???
Me: Yes, garlic is fine. It’s not a vampire baby.
Hanging out in the kitchen:
Joe’s wife: should I put more cilantro in the tomatoes?
Me: Definitely! You can never have too much cilantro.
Joe: CAN YOU HAVE CILANTRO?!?!
While hanging out on a dock, which is FLOATING on the lake:
Me: I’m gonna jump in.
Joe: WILL THAT HURT THE BABY???
While everyone was commenting on the size of my 36 week belly:
Me: Yeah, I can’t really suck it in much these days! (while flexing my abs and patting my tummy)
Joe (staring at the hand patting my tummy and looking panicked): You probably shouldn’t be doing that!!!
Joe also expressed admiration and surprise when I drove us all an hour up a winding mountain road to a hiking trail. I was like, “Yep, haven’t forgotten how to drive just because I’m pregnant.”
So, what have been your WTF moments? Anyone else lucky enough to have someone like Joe* around?
