My Musings/Thoughts Today

In a way, it is TOTALLY cool to be fat. Because I am fat, and admit it, I can call 'em as I see 'em without feeling ashamed, embarrassed or superior. I can say you are ugly, fat, stupid, WHATEVER, and you have NO recourse, like saying I am conceited or self indulgent...because I know I'm fat, I admit it, so I am privy to call 'em as I see 'em!

There is a new "reality show" on ABC called "Wipeout." If you haven't seen it, it is on ABC on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm PDT. The show has people that go through obstacle courses and the best times stay in the game til there is only one left.

This week, there was an old fat chick that was competing. I took one look at her and said "What the HECK are you doing on this show? You will NEVER make it past the first round!"
And she didn't. And I wondered why they even let her on the show...the show is all about physical competition!

Then I figured, after hearing her talk to the commentator, she was so sure of herself, they felt they HAD to let her on, whether she sank or swam! She was a confident lady (albeit without reason!)

In any event, I can barely walk a mile without being winded...but then I smoke too, and I have COPD.

But I still have to wonder...why did this FAT CHICK ever think she could beat athletes?

Kudos to her for being self confident, but then there is also the FLIP side of being stupid...showing people you are.
