Random musings

QuirkyChick says:

"When someone says "wow, you look like you've lost weight!" it's really just a nicer way of saying, "wow, I thought you were fatter than that!"

I agree. And it's even worse when I've actually gained weight, but am wearing one of my outfits that tends to draw the eye away from my fatter parts. And then when the person says "you've lost weight" I feel that I must say, "no, I've never weighed this much before, it's just this flattering dress."

Except I've managed to quit saying that. Now I just say thank you, even though I wonder why the person is trying to compliment me by commenting on my size instead of saying that what I'm wearing looks good, or that I look good in it.
