It doesn't bother me but it seems to vex my elderly female relatives terribly.
They can't stand that pose, especially when the celebrity or VIP is wearing a form-fitting fabric, probably because it's drawing attention too close to the private parts, or something like that.
It can look a bit smug, I suppose, and I had to smile at Grazia magazine inferring that Jennifer Aniston must be pregnant from a photo of her, with her hands resting on the side of her breadboard-flat abdomen, at some book launch last week.
If it's possible she is actually expecting, she's on the naughty list from now on at my aunties' houses.

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
