observations from a novelist who sometimes wants to say something small and see it published immediately

do we have to talk about it all the time?


 The men at the next table are talking about their weight. They are average-sized, middle-age men, drinking coffee. They are talking about the calories in various foods, about gaining a pound but then losing it again, about the best time to weigh yourself. My word. I thought only women had to have conversations like this.

  3. >Very effeminate indeed… ugh.What Jessica says is true about us, though we'd never admit it. NEVER! We'd die before admitting it … oops … what's that make me … oh dear…I'm lucky I don't have the luxury of involving myself with gluttony … so I never have to worry about weight because I'm a rail. Although it's not very healthy, I'm sure…- Bubba, the homeless blogger
