A Message From Above? Or Just Bad Timing

There's something just painful about waiting in a cafe behind a skinny little thing with her skinny little ass poking out the top of her skinny little jeans who's ordering the hummus sandwich but ummmm...I kinda don't really want the bread so can you just put it on a plate with lettuce? Oh, and to drink, ummmm...a hot water with lemon?

All while I'm about to order the chocolate peanut butter brownie.

Ah. Poor girl. She must be so hungry and weak.

And HOT water with lemon? Ew.

How can you eat hummus with no pita bread! Sucks to be her! Although when I did Atkins I gave up my carbs. I lost weight but as soon as I reached my goal I gained it all back. A no carb diet works but won't last forever unless you give up carbs forever and if you give up carbs forever life will suck.

Blegch...except for the hummus that sounded nasty.
She needed some tea at least in that hot water...
And that hummus and lettuce needed some fried eggplant, roast lamb, tomatoes, feta and pita. With a side of Baklava. And maybe tiropita or dolmades?

Maybe this is why I'm chubby...ah well, better to better to enjoy the life you have than squander it worrying about a few pounds.

Hot water with lemon is a classic anorexic appetite suppressant. Not to give anyone out there ideas.

So... whom do you think is enjoying life more? You?... or Breadless Hummus Ass?

Hand me a brownie too.

did you tackle her and force feed her a brownie? That would have been totally acceptable, if not down right humanitarian of you.

Yeah, let's one up that skinny bread-hatin' bitch and become French.

They have it all figured out. Bread, wine, cheese, pastry, sauces. They don't diet, not a gym to be found over there. And they are skinny.

bread = good
brownie = good
fat = good

hot water with lemon = bad

Yeah, I'd like to be skinnier sometimes. But not THAT badly.

Hand me a brownie too, would ya? And maybe a full-caff coffee beverage to enjoy with it? ;-)

I think this is the official menu of Crazy People, sandwiches without bread and hot water. With lemon.

I'm suddenly starving just thinking about this poor woman...

Rejoice in the brownie! Order it loudly & proudly :)

I think it's a sign that being skinny is completely not worth it. Viva la brownies!

i was behind that same ass in its skinny jeans today at Subway...except, to my veggie-sub-loving surprise, she got this baloney and lunch meat sub with extra mayo and no veg except pickles, on white bread. and sat down and ate it, all the while with me staring at her in confusion.

i swear, she weighed six pounds. must be malnutrition.

I probably would have smacked her one! And ordered 2 brownies so I could eat one for her.

bon, she was not a New Yorker with that order. That's all I can say.

Someday she will realize it's not worth it because (a) they won't love you for your starvation and (b) nobody has been discovered in the modern equivalent of a malt shop (aka Starbucks) like...ever.

What? You mean you don't have cravings for lettuce? Baaahaaaa!

I hope that PB brownie was yummmmy! You should have eaten it right in front of her to torture her.

Life is too short to skip the chocolate peanut butter brownies.

(Though I admit to enjoying a hot water with lemon... and sugar, lots of sugar. Hot lemonade is SO GOOD on the throat in winter.)

Humpf??? You caught me with a mouthful of chocolate chip cookie...

Huh - hot water with lemon as an appetite suppressant? I might have to try that!

(just so you don't get the wrong idea either go look at my profile or know that I'd have been ordering the chocolate peanut butter brownie but after hearing her order I'd have added the hummus with pita bread and throw in her pita too please! Mmmmm, pita and hummus LOL)

I love a hummus sandwich, but with no bread? Huh?

That chocolate peanut butter brownie sounds good! Even better than the 2 cookies I had after a huge steak burrito.

I've gotta have my desert. It's for the baby, really. She needs it in the breastmilk. Really.

I feel sorry for her, missing out on the brownie.

You really have to feel bad for her. All that energy expended on denying herself anything caloric. It's sad, really.

Sounds like a nice appetizer. Too bad she didn't order a real meal with it, too.

If it wasn't for my crazy breastfeeding appetite not letting me ever turn away food, I would want to shove that brownie into her mouth.

only I wish I were playing the part of the skinny little hot water drinker!!!

But really.......who's living life? Hummous on lettuce?

And, I bet you still had better boobs.

Life is too short to eat chickpeas, lettuce and lemon.

Eat brownies, rejoice, and take comfort that no one rolled their eyes when you ordered it!

Hot f*ing water with lemon? Yikes! Her life is obviously devoid of pleasure (or so I will choose to believe...)
