This is not a birth announcement post. Quite the opposite actually.
Let me repeat – I am NOT pregnant.
It’s just that my trip to Costco this weekend reminded me of a funny Parita and Vishnu conversation. A conversation that took place next to a display of prenatal vitamins during our last visit there.
First a little context setting. Our last pit stop was the vitamin/supplement section of the store. Vishnu and I split up to find our go to multivitamin. During my search, a display of prenatal vitamins grabbed my attention. This particular kind was for women looking to get pregnant in the next 12-18 months. I am clueless when it comes to pregnancy related things, so I picked up a bottle to show Vishnu. And here’s how that went…
Vishnu: I found our vitamins. Let’s go.
Parita: Look what I found. These are prenatal vitamins for women looking to have a baby in the next year to year and a half.
Vishnu: [With sheer panic on his face.] Ummm…ok.
Parita: [Pretty much talking to myself]. Hmm..I wonder if I should buy a bottle. I mean I know we’re not looking to have a baby anytime soon, but it couldn’t hurt, right?
Vishnu: [As he took the bottle out of my hands]. Let’s just stick to our usual vitamins, Par. You can look into these later.
Parita: True. And I should probably do a little research before I just buy something, right?
Vishnu: [Already walking toward the checkout lines.]
So, yeah. Not pregnant. Not even close.
But at least I know how to get my husband’s attention and keep it for all of 30 seconds!
Happy Monday, friends!
