Ever Had One of Those Days?

Debbie says:

Liz put this oh-so-satisfying link into our comments this week, and I can’t resist sharing it with you all.

The [skinny] woman is now weighing the pros and cons of having skim milk versus two percent milk in her latte, and she says, “God, I don’t know, I just feel so, like, fat today. I feel like such a big fat cow.”

Then she turns to me, and she says, GET THIS, “How do you stand it every day?”

I blink.

Several heads in the cafe pop up because nobody can believe this woman actually said this to a total stranger. I feel as if the sitcom camera is pulling in tight for a closeup on my reaction.

But the gods of snark are smiling upon me today. I reply, straightfaced, “You know, it’s normally not too bad, but today I’m having one of those days where I feel like a shallow dumb bitch. How do you stand it every day?”

There’s more, including the punchline from the barista. Read it all.

Nothing like a snappy comeback to improve one’s mood …
