And the winner is....

Throughout my pregnancy I have had numerous interesting, and, at times, insulting comments made....however, I feel taht this one wins the grand prize. The Gold Star. The Comments to End All Comments. Here's how the conversation went:

S (a colleague): When is your due date again?

Me: June 6th, your dog's birthday. (This may seem odd that I said this but keep in mind that every time the woman asks me my due date she then tells me that it is her dog's birthday and then launches into a story about her dog that usually lasts a good ten minutes. This time I figured I'd cut her off a bit....)

S: Oh, I can't believe you remember that, it must have been horribly insulting that I said that to you!

Me: No, no, not at all....

S: Well, my dog IS rather adorable, and if your baby is half as cute as my dog then you will be very lucky....

I am not making this up.
She *actually* told me that I will be lucky if my DAUGHTER is HALF as cute as her DOG.

WOW.

That would be a case of someone who is a TAD too attached to her damn dog.

WOW (again.) I'm shaking my head in disbelief.
