Consider this a warning (plus social commentary)

Due to a perfect storm of graduation parties (not mine), A's watching parties, friends birthday and my mom's birthday I don't think I will be able to post or update much on this blog this weekend.

Also forgive me if I write a long rambling incoherent drunk post, you have been warned.

Last night, at another friend's graduation party I saw something that made me want to do a social commentary. I saw some freshman girl of the "Abercrombie set," problem is, she's seriously obese. Now I don't crack on fat girls or fat people in general, I'm fat too. I used to be 5'7" 160 lbs in my senior year of high school, then college and the partying/fast food binge started and I ballooned to a Bartolo Colon-esque 250 lbs. Now I'm back to 195/200, still fat, not obese.

Back to the girl. She was wearing a top that would have allowed a midriff to bare on a skinner girl. Problem is, she wasn't revealing a midriff, she was revealing a gut, and big one too. Her gut drooped below the waistband of her miniskirt (don't get me started on her skirt). Look, my gut does not droop below the waistband of my pants.

The point of this story is; if you got it, flaunt it. If you don't got it, don't flaunt it. I dress appropriately for my weight. I have been attracted to bigger girls who dress appropriately for their weight. The point is, you can still dress sexy and weight appropriate if you're bigger than others. However if you're a big girl who dresses sexily exactly like skinny girls do, you will get plenty of looks, but those looks will be looks of revulsion.

I don't want to be impolite, but I did stare at her more than a few times last night.

I was staring at a girl in denial.
