Conversations We Have

Location: On a park bench somewhere in Queens. Jack has just woken up from a stroller nap and confused at having found himself no longer at the zoo, he wants to nurse. So he is. Two men walk by…

Me: (rather loudly) Would you like to stop and talk about it?!?
Roger: What? Did they say something?
Me: The one guy looked at us and then said to his friend, “did you see” and I couldn’t hear the rest but then his friend looked at us too. And then they were talking more. And STARING.
Roger: Ugh. Weird.
Me: Yeah! I’m just breastfeeding! Jesus!
Roger: Um…maybe they just recognized me?
Me: Oh.

Hmm

Ok. Still. WOULD YOU LIKE TO STOP AND TALK ABOUT IT?

Roger: You’re breastfeeding.
Me: Shut up.
