It came out of nowhere. A casual conversation, maybe 25 seconds in.
“You’re going to breastfeed right? You know that’s important.”

The whiplash was instant. My annoyance felt sharp. This stranger had the balls to ask me about breastfeeding and he didn’t even know my name.
Did he have good intentions? Probably. Did he realize he looked like an ass? No. Definitely not.
