Occasionally somebody will mistake Ruby for a boy. Usually when she's wearing something kind of... well, boyish. I know that when babies are not wearing PINK or BLUE, it can be hard to tell sometimes. It's not as if she's got hair long enough to put into ponytails.
I usually don't care too much about it.
But today, someone went so overboard with it that I think even Ruby was annoyed.
Today is Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs for Ruby's favorite hockey team (Canucks) and so when we went out today Ruby wore her retro hockey jersey (with a red frilly shirt underneath) and red pants.
And some ass in the produce store said this:
Ass: Awww, would you look at that cute little guy.
I turn around to look at him to correct him but I don't get a chance because he just goes off...
Ass: I should say look at that BIG guy. He's all ready for the Canucks game tonight isn't he? He's going to grow up to be a BIG BOY! Isn't that right, fella? You should play hockey when you get older. You would be a good DEFENCEMAN.
So not only does she look like a boy but she's a brute too? I know those jerseys are never very figure flattering on chicks, but seriously?
Personally, I would feel kinda bad taking my little boy out with a pink pacifier in his mouth and pink painted toenails but whatever.
Head out of your ass, buddy. That was obnoxious.
