But, I AM Overweight!

I was doing a quick run to the grocery store which meant I didn’t even bother getting dressed. I just tucked my pajama pants into my Uggs and threw on my wide collar black wool coat which still had a big bejeweled brooch on it from the night before.

As I stood in the dairy aisle deciding if I should try a new brand of Soy Milk, a very tall man with curly salt and pepper colored hair pushed his cart in between the refrigerator and me.

“That brooch is so big, you might need a bodyguard,” he said.

I smiled politely.

“You know, I am a bodyguard… in case you need one,” he winked.

I stared at him blankly.

“One other thing,” he said as he leaned in closer. “If anyone tells you you’re overweight, let me know and I’ll break their legs!”

*deep sigh*

I’m thinking of keeping copies of this in my purse to pass out when necessary.
