"hey, margaux, when are you doing your show again? i want to bring my sister to see it. i want her to know she doesn't always have to be skinny or tryin' to be skinny. she just had a baby, and she's all 'i'm so fat'... well, she is a little fat now. she looks like a busted can of biscuits."

Is it sick that I find his comment humorous? It's not an analogy I would use to describe someone psysically, however.

beth -

no, i don't think it's sick. i thought it was funny too, but was also struck by the irony that he obviously wants to help her feel better about her body, but then calls her a "busted can of biscuits." um...does not compute.

i'm sure it's not as simple as the following statement, but sometimes it feels like guys "just don't get it."

honestly, beth, when he said that, i first slapped him on the arm, then giggled, "i've never heard that expression before. i've always called it 'muffin tops.'"

WOW! And boy can I relate after having 3 boys in just under 5 years. Its still not nice when they come out and SAY it! I admit I laughed reading it though. I do feel like a busted can of biscuits sometimes! LOL

yes, slush. that's when the old adage, "if you can't think of anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" should be strictly observed.

and wow! 3 boys under 5 years! bless you, bless you, bless you! here's to raising your boys to find the female body beautiful, and worthy of respect and loving words no matter it's size or "busted"-ess!

and when you're done, please write the book.
