I have a funny story from today.
I work for a large defense contractor and the company is very security concious. So periodically, they do bag checks as people enter and leave. So today, I was leaving.... with my PIS breast pump in tow. The guard stopped me. He was really a young kid - or maybe it's just that I'm old. Anyway, he said "I need to search your bag." So, I put it on the counter and said "ok." So, he opens the front and looks at it kind of confused. Then he says in a serious voice, "this looks like some kind of equipment." I said, "yes," so then he keeps looking at it and says "is this some kind of pump?" and I said "yes." And he said "hydraulic?" and I said "no." He was taking FOREVER on a Friday and I just wanted to get out of there. And then he said "is this company property?" and I said "no." And then he said, "what kind of pump is it?" and I said "it's a breast pump." He said "what's it for?" and I said "milk, it's for milk, I pump my boobs for milk, that's what it is for." He turned beat red and was frazzled and embarrassed while he was trying to zip it back up.
Too funny. Before having Juliane I would have absolutely died of embarrassment, but I'm not sure what happened but I wasn't embarrassed, I just laughed at him. Poor kid.
