Every once in a while

You come across a post that has you both sobbing and laughing out loud in equal measure, leaving you with an overwhelming desire to take the next train to Brighton in order to hunt down and bitch-slap NURRRSE JEAN.

Go read Anna’s post, “You’ve got the loveliest skin … and so much of it.”.

    A story from a friend of a friend: Traci gained a lot of weight during her pregnancy and had a really hard, stressful time of it. After the baby was born, a friend of mine took over the requisite baby gift, but also a lovely nightgown to make the new mom feel special. Traci’s mother-in-law was present and said, “Oh, I was going to buy you something like that, but I didn’t think I would find one big enough for you.” Aren’t people awful?

    And the really stupid thing is that you can be thin (the 50kg sort of thin) and STILL get comments all the time “are you anorexic? don’t you eat?” or start staring at you while you’re getting changed for a swimming costume or be told at the nurse’s office that they’re going to test you for anaemia AGAIN because you’re pale and thin (never mind that they’ve been trying to prove I have anaemia for decades now, and never had a blood test result to prove it).

    I think, when it comes down to it, you just have to accept that an awful lot of people are morons…
