I arrive home from my honeymoon and go about life as a normal newlywed couple. Awww the bliss!! Chasing each other around the room....wait oh sorry. get my mind back to the story. So I am a week late on my period and I get so excited. Now I should say that from the age of 14, aunt flo has never visited on schedule with out help....so inconsiderate. However, I had been birthcontrol and was on scheduled right before my honeymoon.
So I drive to the dollar store to get pregnancy test. I mean, come on, I am a college student married to a college student. No e.p.t.'s for this chick. They were like $18. Okay maybe not that much but might as well have been with my budget. So I go to the dollar store to get my pregnancy test. I am walking up and down every aisle. scouring the shelfs....nothing..nada...zilch. So I finally ask a worker if they have any pregnancy test. She yells across the store to the cashier...."Do you still have those pregnancy test up there?" Gee!!! Lady I mean what if I wanted to keep it on the DL (down low). I mean what if I am a teenager trying to hide it from my momma. I mean....I thought I looked that young. Okay maybe not so much. So after I get an affirmative all the way across the store. I proceed to buy my first every pregnancy test. How exciting.
I don't know why some cashiers feel the need to ask you about the details of why you are taking the test or wish you luck. Not all do it but every once in a blue moon I have had a cashier play 20 questions with me. Same with this one. She looks at it "Awww a pregnancy test. Are you excited? Do you think you are pregnat? How long have you been married?" and so on. I also don't know why I get so embarassed everytime I buy a pregnancy test. I feel almost like I am trying to look grown up. Like I am saying "Yeah I am grown up enough to possible be pregnant. I am so cool" I am such a dork sometimes.
So I dash home. I am dreaming of all the ways I am going to tell Milton or my parents or his parents. I read the directions....reread just to make sure I have it. Pee on a stick and get a Big Fat.......
