On being called fat
Thursday, May 05, 2011
The other day, I went to a wedding reception with some coworkers. One guy brought his girlfriend who none of us knew. My friend and I overheard her talking to him, trying to differenciate the 2 of us: "So Hope is the fat one and Grace is the really fat one?" (I'm Grace.)
First of all, this girl is at LEAST my size if not bigger. Secondly, sure, I'm pretty overweight, pick on me if you must, but Hope isn't a day over 140 pounds and she looks gorgeous. None of us got the best vibes from this chick to begin with, and I shouldn't let it get to me because she's obviously got a very skewed perception or she's just trying to be manipulative to her man? Sigh. Still, I can't shake being called "The Really Fat One". But writing it down helps.
