So I was riding in an elevator with an older lady. She was probably about my size, yeah. She turns to me and asks, "Where did you get those jeans?"

I think - hmm, these are my oldest pair. They're so old that they've had permanent stains that have since faded away. Do I look that good in them? I tell her that I have no idea where they're from, as they're so old.

Then she elaborates,

"It's just that I can't find any jeans that fit with all this enormous fat I have blubbing around now."

Oh. I muttered something about how jeans always fit weird around the waist. Then, leaving the elevator, I realized what just happened.

She compares her body to mine, calling them blubby. She meant it perfectly innocently, of course. I am, thankfully, amused and not irritated at this one.

    Haha. At least you shrugged it off. Maybe they just looked like really comfortable jeans. :)

    One thing to remember, those were your old jeans and you fit in them! She was asking to get some new jeans that fit, so she's going the wrong way and you're going the right way - down.

    It's funny how we see our own bodies. I see myself alto heavier than I am. I used to ask my daughter, "am I the same size as as that woman?" She would say, "no, your smaller." Maybe she was being kind. Of course she doesn't know what I'm hiding under my clothes.

    It's like "Thanks alot!!" huh? I know how that feels! A friend of mine told me she was glad that it was only me going to the beach with her, instead of the other girls who were supposed to go, because she wouldn't feel so fat if she had to compare herself next to them all day. Sheesh!!
