I was called a name this weekend. Those of us who have been extremely heavy, have no doubt, been called names. As a teacher, kids have called me fat. I have not been called names too many times, I think being morbidly obese and 5'10 frightens people. But this weekend it was something I have never encountered before.
Every Friday I go to my best bud's house and take her dinner and hang out with her and my god daughters. This is our tradition and nothing is more disappointing than when I pull up to her house and someone else is there. Even people I like because I do not like to share them. At least not on Fridays.
Well Friday, best bud's sister-in-law was there. I do like her because she is particularly snarky, like me. And she treats my god daughters like little queens. In fact, she and I are in a battle for their affection each time we are in the same place at the same time. It's actually kind of fun to see who the babies choose to go to. I say that because I usually win out (like I said, I see them all the time).
So, back to the name calling story. Best bud's sister-in-law (Aunt C) was over. Now she is cute with really pretty hair and almost as tall as me. She has weight to loose but she carries most of her weight in her mid-section. I am probably just now getting to be her size or I may be slightly smaller (but not by much). But she looked like she was loosing weight in her face so I complemented her on that. She was quick to dismiss, noting a new hair cut. Not long after she left to go shopping.
She called best bud's house about an hour later to tell her something. This is when it happened. Aunt C called me a name. I could not believe when best bud told me. She was saying something about me complementing her when she had not lost any weight and then she called me.......a skinny bitch.
Skinny bitch! Me??? Can you believe it??? That is a new one. But, I kinda like it. It is still so funny to me.
Last night I went out and bought the EA Active for the Wii and created my fitness profile. I told best bud I liked it better than Wii Fit because I got to choose how fat my character was. She asked my if I picked the skinny bitch setting. Too funny. By the way, I think the EA Active is pretty cool. I will try out more of it today.
Anywho, I guess getting called names does not always make you feel bad about yourself. At least this made me feel pretty good. Hope you are feeling good too!!
