Just a quick note to say that one of the loudmouth witches at work zoomed by me, then stopped, then dramatically turned around and eyeballed me.
"Heyyyyy is it me or have you lost a ton of weight?"
Wow, I knew it would happen some day but I never thought it would happen like that. SO many answers came to mind:
"No it is you, your vision must have gotten fatter..." OK so that doesn't make sense, I still wanted to say it! Along with mind your own business, have you gained a ton of weight, just because I've lost weight doesn't mean I want to talk to you about it, and my personal favorite Shut the Fuck Up loudmouth.
Instead I said "Nice of you to say..."
She pressed me, can you believe it? "So, did you?"
Um, if it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, it must be a dumbass gossip whore standing in front of me!!
I refused to answer. I changed the subject, "Hey what did you do with your dog when you went on vacation?"
POOF goes the subject of my weight loss, thankfully.
It is one thing for friends to notice. That will make me glow. It is quite another thing for the nasties at work to comment on it like it is some juicy piece of gossip. That will just make me glower.
