A room full of toppers

Do you have a topper in your life? Ya know, the people that jump in after you have told a story saying that they have had a bigger and better story to tell you. Example: You say: "I had the worst day at work today, I got cursed out, I stubbed my toe and I lost my purse." Topper: "Well that's nothing compared to the day I had last week. I got cursed out by 10 people, I had my foot amputated and had my purse stolen at gunpoint." LOL!!! Well, the Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic where I take Shelby for her evaluations is full of toppers. There is a lot of people there and they all have preemies. The second you walk through the door people are asking your story. They all want to tell you how much sicker their child was then yours. I REALLY enjoy sitting in the corner and watching these exchanges between people. It's funny as it goes back and forth between the toppers. I try really hard not to be a topper, so please feel free to inform me if I start topping.

Well that's nothing. At this place I go to for lunch the toppers are way worse than that.

I know a few toppers...one-uppers you could call them.

I would love to see those people at the doctor's office. And I would love to see you cause a scene by trying to top them.

You all crack me up. I know what you are talking about. I too try to avoid topping. Maybe I'll try underwhelming people instead. "You saw a spaceship last week? All I saw was an airplane."

I know a lot of toppers, pretty much everywhere I go I am sourounded by toppers, I could blog everyday about it if I wanted to.

ha ha. Lets make a pact to let each other know if we become toppers. I mean it.

I don't know how I missed this post but it made me laugh.
