Then it dawned on me...

Thursday, March 06, 2008

So, I took my daughter shopping at the mall on Saturday. After she had gotten all her cute little outfits, I bought her a soft pretzel and she sat down to eat it while I popped into New York & Co. While I was there, I saw one of the moms from the volleyball team my daughter was on last year. She looked right at me, and I smiled at her, and she just walked away. And I thought, "How can she not recognize me? Am I that forgettable?" Later, I realized that she didn't recognize me because I'm 40 pounds lighter! My skinniness is like a disguise!!!

    I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I fell off the wagon for a while. I thought it was pretty cool that she didn't recognize you. There was a new girl working at the Y (before I took a hiatus) and when I asked her for my membership card back...she couldn't find it. After looking thru all of them, she finally asked me my name. Then she picks it up, looks at it and says...well, you don't even look like this! I could have hugged her! That was the BEST compliment she could have given me.
