The Time I Took A Pregnancy Test...At Starbuck's

STOP! Don't panic. I'm not pregnant. But, I thought I was. It all started when "Aunt Flow" hadn't shown up, and according to, I had all the signs for pregnancy.

So, on the way back from the beach, I decided to go to Walgreen's and get a pregnancy test. Of course, Ben waited in the car.

First, WHO KNEW there were so many FREAKING options for choosing a pregnancy test?!?!?!?!?

After I made my selection, I walked to the counter, praying that the cashier would be female. She was not only female, she refused to make eye contact. I tried not to laugh. AT her.

Then, I walked back to the car. Ben drove to Starbuck's (there was no WAY I was going to the Walgreen's bathroom). I slipped inside, stopped to enjoy the coffee scent that I may have to say good-bye to for a while. Then, marched to the bathroom. I carefully followed the directions on the pregnancy test instructions page...and the result? NEGATIVE. What a relief. No baby today!

To celebrate, I ate sushi. Because, when you aren't preggo, the best celebration choice is raw fish.


  1. lol. I love the way you tell stories! Especially this one :) Love you!

  2. Funny! Can so relate, though. I done a pregnancy test at church. After I purchased it from Rite Aid. Where Caleb Cook was the cashier.

  3. At first I read the title and started freaking out.. at work. I read the entire post and kinda got disappointed but then I started laughing.. You are hilarious!!!

  4. The first pregnancy scare that we had resulted in us purchasing from a woman who had been our lunch lady in middle/high school for about making you laugh! She told us that she hoped that our test was positive because we'd make good parents....hahaha. Awkward :) (Kat)

  5. If I had known, we would have all been in that Starbucks for the announcement.


I (heart) comments! Thank you for making my day!
