Another week, another 100 Word Challenge. It's located here, and if you don't get it by now, I don't know what else I can say to explain it. My entry is entitled "Those People".
I felt it before I heard it, and I heard it before I saw it. Lisa suddenly had a crowd of women around her desk, with flushed voices and high, excited laughter. I picked up my phone to feign work. Three years ago, it was weddings, friends and colleagues forcing you into pastel dresses and shoes. Now it's an epidemic of babies-swollen bellied women who talk of nothing but hormones and heaving, then later feedings and diapers. Was I less of a woman to not want any of this? To sit here is impolite, to join them unbearable. I stood.
