firesea: self-portrait

I guess I had to get at least one

Amazingly, throughout this pregnancy I've not had much of anything in the way of the unwanted belly pats that I was warned would be ubiquitous. Everyone has asked first, and most of those were people I would have welcomed anyway.

Until this morning, when the waitress in the diner where we were having breakfast reached out without warning and patted my belly.

When she left, Andrei keeled over laughing. I turned to him and said "What? Was it the look on my face that said 'I'd eat her, but it's too much trouble'?"

I got soooooo plastered tonight!

I mean we made a plaster belly cast. What did you think I meant!?

Oh, and petroleum jelly is a bitch to get off.
