They didn't punch me in my stomach. Thanks for the advice!

Last evening I took O and three of her friends out for a movie (Madagascar 2) and dinner.

R advising O before we left: "Don't trouble Amma. Listen to her. Don't fight with each other (friends not me). And don't let anyone punch her in the stomach because she is pregnant."

Now, was he giving O and her friends an idea or what?! Because it is not like people routinely punch me in my stomach, pregnant or otherwise!

For what it was worth, they didn't punch me on my stomach.

PS: The movie sucked. No story to speak of, and really boring lines. Nothing catchy. Stupid. And why should a Giraffe fall in love with a Hippo. Isn't it unethical for 2 different breeds to hook up? It didn't help that I am not a fan of animation films.

You'd be surprised-quite a few stomach punchers and elbowers ont he tube here. Not deliberate, but they need to be told to look and they're adults!

Just call me 'A' said...

totally agree. Nothing like Madagascar 1. and i echo mg's thoughts. i've seen people using their palms on a pregnants women stomach to move ahead as if they're shoving a cart or something. disgusting. and that too i can excuse for lack of understanding maybe..but adults!

Knowing you have a baby in your stomach, I am sure even children would know better. They are so damn smart these days!

Yeah, it almost sounds like only pregnant women have the privilege of not being kicked in the stomach :-))

This is my first time here by the way, nice blog!!
