The Pregnant WaitressOnce a week, Daily Intel takes a peek at what your friends and neighbors are doing behind doors left slightly ajar. Today, the Pregnant Waitress: female, 30, Long Island, waitress, married, straight.
9 p.m.: Arrive to dinner with thirteen of my girlfriends for a bachelorette party. Suddenly self-conscious that everyone is hot, sexy, and showing skin. Though I’m not showing, my clothes are too tight to wear and I feel bloated, unattractive, and pregnant. Why did I have to get pregnant before summer?
11 p.m.: Get bumped into by several hot guys trying to get closer to my friends. Apparently I’m puffy and invisible.
Midnight: Pack the girls into my SUV and drive to another bar. They are loud, drunk, and screaming. I’m trying to enjoy, but I’m tired and feel my feet are swelling.
12:30 a.m.: Girlfriend gets in another fight with her ex’s new girl. Cops come. Arrest both girls. I spend a few hours in a police station until they release her.
3 a.m.: Come home. Husband tries to curl up next to me and feel my breasts. “Ouch! Don’t you know they’re sensitive?” I angrily roll over and go to sleep.
