I'm at home drinking wine this fine Saturday evening, feeling a little blue after having brunch with a friend that I haven't seen in about 8months.
She turned up in a figure hugging cocktail dress and about 20lbs lighter than the last time I'd seen her - super skinny with tiny twig arms, since she wasn't what you'd call even slightly overweight before - and said to me....
"Oh you look great, have you put on weight? It really suits you."
What the fuck!! Who says that to someone?
For the record I have NOT put on weight!!
I was reminded of the scene in Bridget Jones where she says of someone "Talking to her is like swimming in a sea and being stung repeatedly by an enormous jellyfish."
Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. I think it will be another 8months before we brunch again!!
