Preemie parent tries to chat with pregnant woman…

Got my teeth cleaned today. The dental technician appeared to be about 5 months pregnant.

Dental technician: “Your head goes so far up in the chair, it’s hard for me to reach around you without my belly bumping in to you. In a few months, it’ll be even harder for me to reach.”

Me: (pause while brain tries to come up with acceptable response, but they’re all variations on “It must be hard to move when you’re huge.” Also rejected “my wife delivered at 5 months so that wasn’t a problem.” Eventually I think I find something…)

“Too bad they can’t rent you a pair of longer arms when you’re pregnant.”
