What Not to Say to a Pastor/ Priest's Wife

"Honey, I don't mean to be forward, but.... are you pregnant?"

Quickly followed by:

"Oh my, I didn't mean to imply that you have a little pooch.... I think it's just the style of dress."

What I wanted to say in response


  1. The summer before last (just BEFORE I was pregnant, mind you), I had someone ask me, LOUDLY, in the middle of a small party, whether I was pregnant. And then she wouldn't take 'no' for an answer! She kept asking me if I was sure, and saying that she'd just been sure I was pregnant! A woman should never have to convince someone else (in a public space, no less) that she's not pregnant! That lady sure is lucky she's so old, because I can let a lot of things slide when it comes to the elderly.

  2. "hmm, you know, I think you did mean to be forward..." Although this probably comes under "Things You Wish You Could Say But Can't Cause You're the Pastor's Wife"....
