The word every man doesn't know he's afraid of.
Seriously, I've never seen so many men be so uncomfortable. Just say "Breastpump" and they're either going to:
- Turn bright red and start stuttering
- Change the subject
- Make an awkward joke
- Act like nothing has been said at all
I think that pumping breast milk is going to leave me with some of my funniest memories. Yesterday, I pumped at the Chick Fil A drive through. I was covered up, but it was pretty obvious something was going on under there. I don't think I'll ever forget the look on that poor guy's face.
I clean the parts in the microwave at work. One time I walked into the kitchen and found a male coworker holding and staring into the bag. He dropped it like a hot potato when I came around the corner, mumbled something unrelated, and walked off just leaving his lunch sitting on the counter.
And because no post is complete without pictures, and just in case I can have another opportunity to make some guy uncomfortable:
Driving and Pumping! AC adaptors are glorious inventions! Yes, that's a moving car in the background. Yes, I was stopped at a red light. I would never text-takeapicture- and drive ;-) That would be dangerous, silly.
