I heard the most wonderful conversation when I was at the LB (Lane Bryant) this weekend. All the fat employees were standing in a circle talking about different times they were mistaken for being pregnant. One girl said she didn't care, one woman said it hurt her self esteem and the other woman said, and I quote:
"I tell 'em I not pregnant...I'm obviously just fat!"
Then she started grabbing parts of her body and saying:
"This ain't baby, this is fat" "This ain't baby, this is fat"
So, that's totally my new mantra.
I saw my friend Laura's father this weekend. I've known her and her family for around 13 years. Her father, Jeff, has lost some weight, (I know, big fuckin' whoop), so I told Jeff how great he looked. Then he said:
"You can do it too Kid-o!"
Seriously, I was about to kick him in his fucking balls.
