So here’s a fun thing I forgot from my high school days (when I was thin) – jealous people are mean. It sucks when it’s teens you’re dealing with, because they’re hormonal and just naturally jerky – but it sucks so much more when they’re adults and should know better.
And recently I’ve had the displeasure of being blindsided on more than occasion by passive aggressive commentary that “isn’t about YOU, Mary” (no, of course not – that would be infantile) but IS about all those other people OBSESSED with how they look.
You know, those people who work out every day and talk about it (gasp!) – or who watch what they eat! Imagine?! Or those narcissists, those mindless stupids you see proudly posting pictures of themselves, when we ALL know that it’s a person’s BRAIN that matters. Not how they look! It’s the brain. And they’re stupid. And again, “no, Mary – none of this is about you!” Even though it all is. Very specifically and completely, actually.
And I’m DONE with being nice about it.
So let’s address some things while I have your attention, hmm?
