Does anyone else have the feeling that their entire pregnancy occurred in a Twilight Zone? And sadly the 21-and-under-crowd probably thinks of vampires and not Alfred Hitchcock when I say that, but rest assured I'm thinking more of the portly gentleman than the sparkling ones.*
I took my bike into the bike shop to get a tune up, and the owner asked when the last time I'd ridden it was.
"Um, not too long. I rode all the time last summer."
"Oh, wait. No, that's not right. I was pregnant all last summer.** So it would have been the summer before that."
I had literally completely forgotten that the summer of last year I was pregnant. In my mind, the summer BEFORE that was last summer. And that happens all the time - someone will ask how long ago something occurred, and my answer will be X minus nine months. I mean, I remember being pregnant. But it's like it happened in a parallel universe.
It's very strange.
*Apparently Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents are two different shows that I've mind-melded into one.
**My mom wouldn't let me ride (adorably protective) and also it was 100 degrees at 8am pretty much every day of the summer so suck it.
