Life lessons

A few things I've learned this week:

1. You know how they say never go shopping when you're hungry? Well, the same goes for when you're thirsty. If you go grocery shopping when you're thirsty, you may come home with bottled water galore, Powerade, 2 bottles of Sprite, multiple boxes of Crystal Light and significantly more milk than is necessary for a family of two, and your spouse will laugh at you.
2. No matter how busy you are, you need to make time for little things, like peeing. Sorry if that's gross, but yesterday I was so busy between noon and 8 pm that I did not have time to pee. This would be unpleasant in general, but is particularly unpleasant when a) 7 months pregnant and b) you were already thirsty so bought an absurd number of liquids (see #1). So, law school or no law school, commitments or no commitments, take the time.
3. When you have to leave a class early, it is best not to sit right in the middle, as you will have to climb over people, the prof will stop the lecture and stare at you, and you have no chance to act natural. This is especially true when there are only four other people in the class.
4. When cashiers tell you, "Hey mom, take good care of baby!" and point at your belly, you should not respond with, "Don't tell me what to do."

Powerade is pure goodness. And you didn't really say that to the cashier right?

I would have told the cashier I'm not pregnant.

I think you just told me what to do, when you told me not to say, "Don't tell me what to do." HMM.

I'm only three months pregnant (so technically not showing) but I had a cashier ask me if I was pregnant because my belly sticks out from all the poo I can't get out. Then she gave me the name of a good doctor.

Gurrbonzo, I just left Utah and did not try to go into the law school to meet you! I think your comments are great, and I love the quotes from the professors and students. Catch my friend Rob Avery's lecture at the J. Reub sometime soon--"How to Run a Successful Law Firm."

Rob graduated a couple of years ago. And yes, he is old enough to be your father!

And you will do just fine with your baby.
