As most of you know, my strange illness has given me a belly that makes me look about seven months pregnant. After so many years I have been able to find the humour both in the queries and in my responses. Sometimes I actually look forward to bizarre responses because they make such good stories. Belly laugh Friday is my chance to share these humorous tidbits with all of you. Enjoy.
I smile pleasantly at the hotel concierge as we wait for the elevators. She gives me a knowing smile.
Finally she says, “Honey, you’re just all belly!”
I’m a little startled that someone would so blatantly tell me what I already know. She’s smiling happily though, so I understand that this is supposed to be a compliment.
“Your baby is all in the belly”.
Ah, comprehension blooms.
“Hey Cheryl, come on over here!” Cheryl, another employee obediently trots over.
“Isn’t her baby all in the belly? Me, mine was in my face and in my hips, but she’s all belly. Isn’t she Cheryl?”
Cheryl looks me over.
“Uh huh, all in the belly”
I just smile serenely and pretend to enjoy the compliment.
