You Asked For It

Ever since we’ve announced our engagement, people have been asking if I’m pregnant.

Sometimes they ask in a subtle fashion, like this:

“Any reason why now?”

Sometimes they just come out and say it:

“Are you pregnant?”

Or

“Is there a baby in your future?”

I suppose this is a reasonable question – two people that live together and love each other very much decide to get married – maybe one of them is pregnant, right?

I asked a friend if she got this question when she got engaged. She said she did not. Instead, she told me, people asked her if she was dying. Pregnant or Dying, the world wants to know.
