You want to know what?!

Question mark
Sunday I had to do the mom thing yet again and take my kids to their soccer games.

Seriously, who the hell thinks it's a good idea to play soccer at 9 in the morning?! I am not a morning person and the fact that it was cold only made matters worse!

Anywho, I had asked my daughter's coach a question after practice last week. He didn't know the answer so he would try to find out for me by game time. To read about the whole situation, you can hop on over to my other blog.

After my girl's incredibly awesome game where she scored a goal, he did answer my question, and just like he does with a lot of other people, we started talking. Mostly about our kids and why I don't like my son's coach. It was time for my son's game to start so we parted ways.

20 minutes into my son's game, I feel a presence next to me. I turn to see who's there, and it's my daughter's coach. He asked how my son was doing in his game. His next question blew me away. He asked if I was married.

Um, come again?!

Yes, I am, by the way. You may never see my husband at the games, but that doesn't mean I'm not married. Happily married, I might add. He just has a shit ton of work to do. If he can get it done when the kids aren't home, it means more quality time when we do return home. It can even free up his evenings, too, if you know what I mean!

So this question~ it's fine and dandy that you like to know more about people. I get that you're a people person. I am, too. Or at least more so than I was a few years ago. But personally, I'm not comfortable asking people about their relationship status if I just met them a few weeks ago.

I have a suspicion that he is a single dad. Is that why I may be reading too much into this inquiry, or does he simply just like to know who people are?

Your thoughts?

Hmm. I guess it would depend on how he asked the question, and if he never saw your hubby at a game or practice, it might be a logical question.

I kind of would be flattered a bit...It's kind of weird though that it was the coach. It'll make things kind of awkward from here on out.

I totally used the word kind too much in that comment. Sorry!

I would've been flattered a bit, but also caught off guard and a little freaked out!
