My nephew was born with a umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and was deprived of oxygen while they did a emergency C Section on my sister. Since then he has some mental development problems. He is very blunt and honest with no filters. He does not use tact at all.
I am picking him up from school each day. He is 14 year old now but is as tall and large as many Seniors at his school. Yesterday, I picked him up for the first time. I stood outside my car so he could spot me (or my hair).
He says, Gwen! "You might be mistaken as my FAT girlfriend!" I asked him to repeat himself out of pure shock and he said it again. See kids with cars are allowed to park in the parking area. I was flattered that he thought I looked enough to be his girlfriend (I am old enough to be his Mother!) but yet I was fat.
At first I was highly offended but could not be angry at him because he was being honest. I took this as ANOTHER big hint that I need to get my weight in control.
The words that come out of babes!
His Mom is my half sister and wears a size 0. She is the skinniest woman I know. So there is a big contrast between me and her.
When I finally lose my weight, what will the haters *itch about then?
