A Redundant Question, & a Racy Photo… of ME (fun Friday)
Thank you for reading my recent wave of blog posts as I try to write every day for a 40 day period.
After a week of so much serious business, I thought it would be appropriate to lighten the mood a little while opening your eyes to a different side of me. You have been warned…
You see, I’m back in California this weekend for a really quick trip with my family– a final visa run before my wife gives birth in Mexico in mid-May — and it seems every time I’m back, people ask me the same exact question: “Did you lose more weight?!?!”
For most of you, such a question would make your day but for a person that’s already skinny, you might as well say: “What is wrong with you? Your skinny body disgusts me! You need to eat more, Skinny Bone Jones!”
My answer for now and forever more is, NO. No I did NOT lose weight, I DO not lose weight… and I do not want green eggs and ham.
Perhaps it’s just the tighter clothes I’m wearing. Maybe you have gained weight. But for the last time, I am not losing weight.
I have weighed the same for the last 10 years. I am a picture of consistency. How can I lose weight every time I’m away from you? I’d be a shriveled corpse.
On our last trip back to California, a Korean lady actually said this to me and my pregnant wife: “Wow! It looks like you need to eat more and your wife is eating everything.” (translated)
WHAT?! Dang it, Korean people. That’s the most creative, one-take, double-whammy insult on a couple I’ve ever heard in my life.
All that to say, I know it’s inevitable. I’m going to get concerned questions again about my weight. I need to brace myself.
But for the rest of you (who read my blog), I want you to look at the photo below and tell me who should be concerned (scroll down):
[WARNING: Partial Nudity]
[Or is it inspiring?]
[I had give it all I got in this one]
[Here you go]
This is au-naturale, baby. I eat well, I do my push-ups every morning and I’m healthy. Let’s close this case, shall we?
(Sorry if you find this picture offensive. Look on the bright side: you and I are that much more intimate now!)
Have a great weekend, folks and be nice to skinny people.
