I can't believe I forgot to post what happened to me the other day. I was shopping in Target in the baby section and with me in the isle was a woman and her teenage daughter. Out of now where, the daughter asks me if she could touch my belly. I didn't know what to say. I made a look like "did I hear you correctly and are you nuts?" She was saying how she just liked pregnant bellies and wanted to touch mine. I said "How bizarre?" Her mom asked her daughter "what's wrong with you asking to touch someone's belly?" I kind of did a you're crazy laugh and just kept shopping. The mother turned to her daughter and said let's go. As they were walking away, the mother turned to me and said " I wouldn't want some stranger touching me." They left and I was still standing there looking at stuff feeling shocked at what just happened. Really weird. I have never had anyone I didn't know try or want to touch my belly. I also can't believe that someone would have the nerve to ask a total stranger if they can touch their belly. What's up with people? Very, very odd.
Buddy, we hardly knew ye.
