One of my tables tonight had just finished their dinner; I picked up their plates and asked if they wanted dessert. The woman laughed, but the man very loudly said "OH HELL NO! We NEVER get dessert when we go out! Too much damn food!"

I gave them my standard response: "Well, we don't want to send you home hungry!"

"Well I don't want to be no 200 pounds either!"

I'm sure they noticed that my smile got rather rigid; I thought about telling him I weigh 260 pounds, but decided it wasn't worth it in the middle of the dinner rush.

Now, of course, I am fat. But I bet the guy wouldn't guy I weighed more than 200 pounds, because people have that fixed in their minds as Huger Than Huge. Ridiculous.

    I think the opinion of one who says, "Well I don't want to be no 200 pounds either!" isn't something on which I would place any value.

    I watched the last House (Series 5) last night. Wow! I now have one episode of the new series TiVo'd to watch, then I'm up to date.
