Dude Looks Like a Lady.

We've all done it.

You know how when you're shopping or walking the dog or ordering a grilled chicken salad-no-cheese-dressing-on-the-side and you see a lady and wonder is she pregnant?

Note: It is fine to wonder such things. However, one may never utter the thought out loud. To the person of your wonderings.

Note: It is fine to whisper the question to your shopping partner or dining partner or your dog. Even if the woman in question is in active labor, on the floor, asking for an ambulance. It doesn't change the fact that one does not ask.

I am in the grocery store parking lot when such a situation arises. The questionable-pregnancy individual has a large and protruding abdomen with dark curly hair pulled back in a ponytail. I ask my shopping partner if she thinks the woman is pregnant.

My shopping partner looks. She cocks her a head a little. Then she looks at me.

That's a man.


So the answer is no, then?
