I have a woman at work who knows EVERYTHING. This is the same woman that told me I looked liked I had gained weight over the summer. Here is a sample conversation we had when we returned from Winter Break.
Me: We are having a boy.
Work Lady: Oh my God! Is Ryan excited?
Me: Yes, he is really excited!
Work Lady: I could have told you that.
Um, really? If you could have told me that, then why are you asking me?
The school I work in is doing its own version of the Biggest Loser. My friend Jenn put this together and should actually write a blog post about how much shit she has had to endure by trying to do something nice. My mom would say this goes under the category of "no good deed goes unpunished." Anyway, the above mentioned work lady is involved in the Biggest Loser, and to put it nicely, could stand to lose quite a few pounds.
The other day in the office, she was sharing with me that her daughters are also "rounder" and she was worried that she was never a good role model in terms of health for them. I thought this was a nice, reflective moment until she added,
"It is a good thing you are having a boy, because the way you eat would give your daughter an eating issue."
Super. Thank you.
