Why are my eyes laying on my desk, again?

July 9, 2009

Because they violently rolled out of my head.  That’s why.  As in the following dialogue made me roll my eyes ferociously.  Here we go:

Co-worker 1: Wow, have you seen such-and-such?!?  He looks SO GOOD, he’s lost SO much weight…his face looks so thin!!!
Co-worker 2: I did! I hadn’t seen him around in awhile, so I asked him where he’s been.  Turns out he’s been sick.  He had some horrible flu, and he was out for 3 weeks.  And, his shoulder has been killing him, too.  He has lost a lot of weight.
Co-worker 1: Well, that’s too bad!  But he does look SO good.

Take-home message:  Maybe you’ve been sick and near death, maybe you’ve had some intestine-eating flu, maybe you have cancer, or any other horrible thing that detracts you from living a full and healthy life…but IT’S OKAY!  ‘Cause, you lost lots of weight, you’re thin now, AND YOU LOOK SO GOOD.  How far does it have to go, really?  When will ‘thin’ not be the end-all, be-all of existence?  Because at this point, it just sounds like we’re walking up to the casket and saying it’s a shame that he’s dead, but at least he was thin.  And, it’s just terrifying.
