My Favorite Number is Changing

You know when you were a kid you had a favorite number? Mine was 7! Well 17 because the number of my 1st grade classroom. I loved Mrs. Waldrop! But I soon dropped the 1 and left it at 7. I think I need to change it. I don't know, maybe to... 20! or back to 17!

The reason....

There are now 7 preggos at work. YEP 7! CRAP CRAP CRAP! I am surrounded. The best part, they are all due in the same 2 months. SHOOT ME! I might need to die!

Guess when they are all due? Yep right around my due date! YEP KILL ME!!!!

That is freakin' crazy. I'm so sorry that you have to be surrounded like that.

JJ said...

Im sorry--thats not fun to have to deal with=( Ill come have LOTS of wine with you!

Meghan said...

Oh god, that sounds just unbearable. I might have to switch schools or classrooms or something. Definately time for a new lucky number

Leah said...

Oh no. Groan. That really is just cruel. How much is one person supposed to take?

Seeing as how I'm surrounded by preggos myself at work, and have not yet figured out how to deal with it, I apologize that I have absolutely no sound advice. Sorry.

But I have empathy. Lots and lots of empathy. And a great big hug for you.

That's really terrible. I vote for 17. You can go get the song "Sexy and 17" (which continues, "My little Rock 'n' Roll Queen) and just close your eyes and rock out to it to drown out the preggos.

Oh, Sunny. That just sucks.

I can't come up with anything better than that.

Stealing your favorite number just bites!

That is just the worst!

Ouch! It might be time to start keeping a supply of Irish coffee on hand for the bad days. Not that I am encouraging drinking at work. Around children. Nope, not me!
Seriously, that just sucks.

Kim said...

Fuck, that sucks. Ugh. I say bring in some yummy freshly baked brownies and don't share!

Cathleen said...

UGH! That just stinks!

M said...

Holy crap - can't you take some leave time, get a transfer or something like that?

Beagle said...

Ugggh! How awful.

Chris said...

That just so completely sucks! I suppose the bright side could be that since so many peeps are preggers now, when you get pregnant you will get to be the center of attention!

Kristen said...

Ugh, what a way to taint that number! I think a change would do you good - back to 17!

XOXO

Make your new favorite number pi. Better yet, the symbol for pi. Now let hte preggos try and steal your favorite number! HA!

Anns said...

Yes yes, pregnancy is the new black right now. Luckily I've never been big on fads so I just look at them and laugh thinking how cool I look for not following the crowd.

But I was thinking. Maybe your lucky number should be 8... sort of in a dedication to the number-Gods so you'll get to be the 8th big belly in your office.

Just a thought.

Manda said...

Gosh, that does suck. My two best friends told me they were pregnant like 2 weeks after I miscarried. I wanted to die. And still do sorta. Boo.
