I've always been asked how tall I am, comments on my height, and have even been asked if they could take a picture with me, (that only happened once when I was in high school.) I've gotten used to it. Tonight, I had to make a quick run to the store and took my two year old along with me. As I was turning down an aisle, I paused to let a woman pass me. Her husband was looking the other way and when he turned and saw me, this was the encounter.
Man: WHOA. She is huge!
I ignored him and continued down the aisle. Behind me, I heard him yell, "Layla! Look at this lady walking down the aisle! She's f@*king huge! "
I kinda chuckled in amazement and then laughed really hard when I heard his wife say, "Yeah. I saw her! Now shut up! "
I was going to ask if he wanted to take a picture but his probably incredibly embarrassed wife had yanked him away.
It honestly didn't bother me, but it got me thinking about things others notice and choose to comment on in daily life. My oldest gets comments on his tall stature as well and my youngest has bright red hair and a lot of people comment on that. Not a big deal. But what about you ladies? Are there characteristics about you that get a lot of attention? How about your kids or spouse? Do you comment on things you notice about strangers?
ETA:I added a lot of detail because I know how CM can be. I am putting my kids to bed but will answer when they are asleep! :)
