    HAHAH ..great write.

    I love that movie. I think I still have it on VHS…somewhere.

  • marilittlebird,

    Thanks for taking the time to comment on my short humorous story.
    I had someone write me who thought my joke condones laziness ,and not practising a health life style.
    Well the truth is ,I my self try to eat health,and exercise, but I still am over weight. Now I am not rich,and can’t stay at home to work out for four hours a day to have a male model’s body. So I want to express my own frustration with struggling with weigh through my humor.
    I think our culture glorifies beauty and ignores notable character .
    You know,outward beauty will fade in about 34 years ,but character can never stop shining as long as a person conduct them self in a notable manner.

    . Obviously its a story on how peole preceive others with a weight problem, which in this case with out respect by tapping his belly and inmmediately making his weight an issue. My battle with weight has been an on going battle so i know where you are coming from. Its a personal thhing and really no ones business, unless we as humans take time understaand what its like to walk in someone elses shoes , we really should not judge others. I work out 4 days a week, not b/c i want to stick thin woman but b/c my passion for running. I become a bird feel like im flying. Ive run since i was5 and never stopped. Weight can be subsitute for anything, birth defeat, crooked teeth, big boobs…..whatever sticks out to people…but do people tell those people…hey your lazy..go get that sh*t fixed….hahah.no!
