The thing about living in an area of the country where people are ultra-obsessed with carbs and protein and bones protruding through their bodies is that you easily lose sight of what is “normal.” As you can imagine, when one is surrounded by professional volleyball players and wannabe swimsuit models, it is quite easy to develop a complex and/or psychological issues. And you know, damn it! I’m tired of feeling fat all the time because all these Really Skinny People just can’t bring it down a notch. Good God, what is this desire to be less than zero? I will never, ever be a Really Skinny Person and I don’t even want to be, so why am I always feeling so bad about myself because my ass can fill out my jeans? So, in order to try and put a stop, at least a temporary one, to my feelings of inadequacy, I’ve composed a couple of lists to remind me that Really Skinny People might be really skinny, but they are also maybe just a teensy weensy, little tiny bit crazy.
Really Skinny People have many fears. Among them:
Spin class being cancelled
Going from a size 2 to a size 4. (Fat ass.)
Running out of kale
