It's really easy to look at a skinny person and think "bitch" but let's all remember that everyone has their issues, right?
Let's not get carried away, though. This does not mean AJ's gone soft, kids. Not even close. Fear not- the grinch is still in. I'm still gonna mock stupid girls in mini skirts and Uggs.
But anyway, a friend sent a comment about having a hard time finding jeans because she is awkwardly shaped. This particular friend is someone I think of as being in amazing shape. She is athletic and adorable and I am jealous of her bright blue eyes. And imagine that she has a hard time finding clothes.
But I guess we all do is my point. Is my realization.
My hairdresser, who is also a good friend, is teeny tiny. I mean, she is a size 2 or 0 and has a great pair of... (well, they're fake but still)... and gorgeous longm golden hair (and really bitchin' tats but I digress)... And she is constantly obsessed with her appearance. Her body, her makeup, her clothes- everything. And by the way, she's over 35 so I guess that stuff doesn't go away with age.
When you think about it- it can't be easy to be teeny tiny. I do have a couple friends that small who can never find clothes. Imagine being 30 and having to shop in the kids department just to get a t-shirt that fits. That's sort of horrible.
So I am endeavoring to be more open minded. Less catty, more sympathetic. Us fat girl and us skinny girls? We may have more in common than we thought.
I hope, I hope this makes someone think.
I hope I can practice what I preach!
I hope my stomach ache from the Jenny Craig meatloaf I just ate goes away soon. This is totally unpleasant.
