Baby Blanket Regression
Finished the Baby Blanket in time to meet a gal friend who I haven’t kept in touch with or seen since probably high school….I think I wigged her out by gifting her the blanket. See there was a lot of major awkwardness in the exchange followed by two varied iterations from her during lunch along the lines of ‘I never mentioned I was pregnant.’
Or had she? See the following excerpt from FB meet-up planning conversation:
“I prefer something a little lighter just because my tummys been filling up right quick these days and large meals are wasted on me. “
Ok, ok– so it’s a little bit of a jump; but, by earlier this week I had deduced and convinced myself (in Emi-Logic) that she was very likely pregnant. So I made one ‘in case’.
Great, that the blanket miraculously came off the needles in time.
Bad, that it caught her off guard in a not so good way.
Also bad, that I wasn’t expecting to regress to my depressed/insecure High School self during 13 year catch-up lunch….
Ugliness I tell you.. absolute ugliness
