I Can't Talk Right Now....I'm "Breastfeeding."

Once in a while I get a little heavy on this here blog and I talk about scary things and sad things and more sad things. Well, I think it's time to lighten up again. And what better way to do that than to talk about boobies and their ability to fend off phone solicitors? I mean really, what better way?

Today you can read my post about this very subject here.

That is a great suggestion! I think you could also say, "Sorry, I"m shaving my bikini line" too.

Once, a police officer pulled me over for speeding and I tossed him my license and said, "meet me at the next rest stop, I have to change my tampon!" I sped ahead, went to a rest stop, went to the bathroom and came out to meet him. (LIES!!) The cop handed me my license and said, "er, slow down now o.k.?"

Girl power!

Oh yes...boobs. Nothing says "joy" like a good boob story. Or a bad one. I'm not picky.

Fantastic excuse! I love it! I wonder what response your husband would get if he just said HE was breastfeeding...

Our latest ploy to fend them off is to let 2-year-old Haddie pick up the phone and "talk" to them. Works every time. :-)

I love this post! I don't have that excuse anymore though, since my youngest is 7. I wish I had of thought of it when they were younger...

I simply get my five year old to answer the phone. As soon as she starts rambling about how she has a new Barbie and how she goes on the yellow school bus, these tele-sales guys invariably hang up. And if I inadvertently miss a call from my mother in law, then, what the heck, so be it!

This is not only funny, but I can totally relate. I am still getting the hang of breastfeeding and have learned to put both my home phone and cell phone in reach while feeding the little one. You never know when the lactation consultant will call... usually while breastfeeding, as if she has a sixth sense or something....
