Is It A Pretty Girl? - SOL22


I really hope I can tell this story so you that you find it as funny as I did.

Picture It: January 18, 2022 around 5:30pm...I am standing in line at the Kroger Pharmacy to pick my prescription.

An older gentlemen gets in line behind me and jokes that I knew I was going to get in line before him. We had entered the story at the same time and had exchanged greetings.

A moments later, another woman, who I remember seeing when I entered, walked up and began talking to the man behind me. An older woman, pushing a grocery cart passed the two, and commented that she was going to sit in elderly section (the waiting area for the pharmacy clinic).

Now, as you can tell, I noticed these people, but I was basically minding my own business, waiting my turn, when I hear something about "a pretty girl" coming from the direction of the seated lady. I glance her way to see who she is talking to and based on her eye contact, it's obvious she is speaking to me.

Since I didn't understand what she said, I leaned a bit closer and said, "Ma'am?" Her response was a bit clearer this time, and I heard, "Is it a pretty girl?". Still confused, I replied, "Who, me"?

She points to my midsection, and says, "Yes, you're pregnant, right?"

I totally bust out laughing and flash my Teacher Fanny Pack her way. It had been completely concealed by my coat.

There are no pretty girls in here. (LOL)


  1. Hahaha this provided me with a much needed smile at the end of the night! You succeeded in sharing the humor, especially because the teacher fanny pack most likely contains the opposite of pretty things.

  2. Oh, how funny! Now I think you have a new name for your fanny pack! The Pretty Girl. Donnetta, this is hilarious!

  3. I think you wrote it perfectly...that IS funny!
