Oh, the things that offend us…
A writer consults “Miss Manners” today about the proper response to give someone who thrusts unsolicited sonogram photos at you with the expectation that you want to see the work-in-progress. “These photographs cause me to feel a little queasy,” the writer states.
Queasy? From a sonogram??
Maybe it’s been a while since I’ve seen one…maybe they’re using technology that’s worlds different than the last sonogram I saw (of a friend’s child) several months back…but in most cases, there’s not enough detail to make me queasy.
Once, I had to rely on the proud parents to “decipher” for me what was what. I wasn’t sure if I was looking at a high-tech medical photo or some kind of abstract artwork!
