STRANGE THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO ME YESTERDAY

At the bookstore:

1. A customer calls:
Customer: "I tried to stop in your store on Monday but it was closed."
ME: "Oh. I'm sorry. I was at the hospital."
Customer: *minor annoyance* "Geeesh, I'm trying to help out your store, but I can't when it's CLOSED."
ME: "Uh, yeah, sorry, I was at THE HOSPITAL."

2. I call a customer to pick up her book order:
ME: "Hi, I just wanted to let you know that your order is in.
Elderly Woman: "You must have the wrong number."
ME: "Oh, I'm sorry! Is this [repeats phone number just dialed]."
Elderly Woman: "HMPF. Don't know about that but it ain't my phone number."
ME: blink blink blinks at dial tone on phone

With my husband:

1. Todd: "You do know that they make thong underwear for pregnant women, right?!?"
ME: blink blink blink
(Um...I'm still at a loss what a good response to this was...)

2. I relay to my husband that the baby now has her eyes open and can see. He gets a flashlight to shine on my stomach to see if the baby reacts...

...and then promptly starts to make shadow puppets on my stomach for the baby...


HELLLLOOOOOO....FULL MOON YESTERDAY, ANYONE?!?!

I can't stop laughing! I would have no response to the thong thing either.

My husband has said the same thing to me. I can't stand maternity clothes or undewear for that matter, do they really think a pregnant women wants to wear a thong. Men?!
