Now for what really matters. Ever since I wrote about how there's a rude woman at work who insults my friend and, while my friend has lost a lot of weight, pretends that is not the case.
If you've seen "Norbitt," you know the character Rasputia. Well that woman at work is like Rasputia. Always going on about how beautiful she is when, honestly, she's not all that.
She's managed to hook a married man for whatever little free time he has left when not with his wife and two daughters. So she feels she's just gorgeous.
As I told you, we last spoke to her in the women's room and saw that she was wearing a girdle. All that talk about weight loss -- that I really couldn't see -- and she's pulling it in with a girdle.
I bumped into her tonight at the grocery store. And finally have some more to offer. She'd apparently come from sitting on the weight bench at the gym at work, apparently went straight from there to the grocery store. And she was wearing a sweat suit and no girlde. Her stomach was like a 9 month pregnant woman. So that girdle does do some good. It makes her look only six or seven months pregnant.
So I took a picture of her with my cell phone and e-mailed it to my friend knowing she'd get a laugh out of it.
I really, seeing her in the sweat suit, with that supreme gut, could not believe that she had the nerve to insult my friend. (Who's lost another ten pounds since I wrote and looks incredible.)
I'm staying off the scale so I have no idea how much I'm losing. I've lost two inches from the hips, however. An excuse to buy some new clothes, right?
