In the movie Mean Girls this girl Regina stops another girl in the hallway and says something along the lines of: "cute skirt, where did you get it?" and the girl replies it was her mom's and Regina says something like "vintage...very cool." As the other girl walks away Regina turns to Lindsey Lohan's character and says, "that is the ugliest effing skirt I have ever seen."
I am a firm believer in the whole 'if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all' rule. I think there are probably two types of people in the world. Those that lie and tell you something that isn't true, or those that don't say anything at all. I'm more of the not saying anything at all type. If ever I compliment you, you can be sure it is genuine. I will never ever tell someone they did well on their talk if it sucked or that someone's kid is cute if I don't think it is (because I think that it's almost a natural instinct to see a little one and say, how cute!) or even to say your new haircut is nice if I don't think it is. I try to avoid that. If you ask me directly if I like your haircut and I don't I might respond with something like, "Wow, I can't believe you actually cut it off!" rather than lie.
My whole point is, I know that I am getting bigger. It's a fact of pregnancy. However, I would much rather nobody tell me anything partially mean in my sensitive state of mind. But also, I would much rather I not have anyone lie to me either. So if I look huge, so be it...but feel free to not tell me so....also, feel free to not lie and say I look good if I don't!
