You Look...

I went to a friend's craft night after watching kids all day.  Upon my arrival, one of my friends said, "You look frazzled."

I told her, "I look like this everyday."

I wasn't offended or anything, but I thought, "Well, I've been up since 5 am, and I've been watching 6 kids all day.  Plus, I'm 8 months pregnant.  Yep, I'm sure I look frazzled.  Oh, and why would you tell someone that?  Do you think they like to hear it?  There are other ways to let people know you are concerned besides telling them how they don't look good."

It reminded me of something I read on Facebook the other day, "My coworker said "you look...tired today..." ya, well I am.  And you look fat today.  In fact you look fat everyday."

It made me laugh.

I don't know, maybe she just wanted to make sure you're okay that it's not anything bigger than your typical day. I'm not sure if I would say that or not, it depends on if I thought they looked like something was really wrong, I guess.

Haha that was great Roo! Thanks for posting that it made me laugh. I never could understand why people still have not caught on that it is never ok to tell someone they look tired! I loved your comment back to her. Your day to day sounds exhausting!
