If I could turn back time...

 I recently took my new baby to the grocery store.  The lady at the cash register looked at my 2 month old and said, without a smile or a laugh or even eye contact, "He's fat."

I was shocked, and I stumbled through a response, but if I could have turned the clock back, this is what I would have said:

--We thought we were feeding him forumula, but it was actually protein shakes. Oopsie!

--If you think HE's big, you should see the twelve others I left at home.

--(tear up) He has a genetic condition.

--Oh, he's not mine. I'm just his wet-nurse.

--HE's fat. YOU lack social skills. Nobody's perfect.

--That's just swelling.   He's allergic to stupid people.  Looks like we chose the wrong line.
