How Rumors Start

When I decided to go to San Juan for another semester I had to tell my friends why I wasn't going to UNM. I was telling Brooke why I wasn't going and I told her that I found the love of my life and was getting married in December. Brooke knowing that I'm a jokester and knew that it was only a lie replied "oh kait are you pregnant?" 
Then I went on to tell her the real reason why.

So Brooke works at the pool and she was telling some other girls about the whole thing because she thought it was pretty funny. While she was telling our friends someone, lets call her Helga, was eavesdropping on the conversation that they were having. Since Helga didn't receive the whole story the only part she heard was me being pregnant.

Helga went home and told her mom and who knows who else that I was pregnant.

So one lovely morning while my mom was walking at the track Helga's mom comes up to my mom and says 
Helga's mom: "Um I have a weird question to ask you.... Is kaitlin pregnant?"
My mom: "Uh what? Kaitlin? No she's not pregnant!"
Helga's mom: "Helga just heard some girls talking and they said that she is pregnant."
My mom: "NO Kaitlin isn't pregnant she doesn't even have a boyfriend!"
Helga's mom: " Well you know that happens to young girls all the time."
My mom: "NO uhh Kaitlin is not pregnant."

So my mom comes home and tells me what happens and I just laugh. My mom didn't think it was very funny because she didn't want some rumor going around about the stake presidents daughter. My Sisters & friends thought it was funny too because they know that is not me. 
I learned my lesson(s) from this though. 
1) don't believe rumors
2) don't make up lies about falling in love (even though your friends know its a joke)
3) If you do make up a lie make sure there are no eavesdroppers hah


  1. Kaitlin that is the funniest thing I've heard all day. I wish I knew who Helga was. Guess it doesn't really matter. I love the fact that the mother was trying to tell your mom that this happens all the time. I miss you and hopefully I'll see you soon.

  2. Kaitlin, that's funny. I tell my friends I'm pregnant all the time, maybe I should learn my lesson before something like this happens. :)
