So I just spend 3.5 hours sitting on a plane beside a guy that kept tugging on his shirt and it was driving me flipping crazy. I was trying to read my book however, with my peripheral vision I kept see him tug on his shirt.
He was wearing one of those athletic moisture wicking shirts that tend to bunch up on your body when you buy a size that is too big for you – well this shirt was GIGANTIC on him and he kept tugging it to spread it out — so on a 3 hour flight I only got about 1.5 hours worth of reading done because I kept getting distracted by his compulsive tugging.
Why was he doing this? Why did he insist on driving me crazy?
When he got up and got off the plane I realised why, it was obvious to me that he used to be a much much much larger man and had lost a SIGNIFICANT amount of weight! I probably now weighs less than my right leg.
OK so he must have been trying to hid the fact that he still was carrying around the excess flesh from being large. OK I can understand that he would be self-conscious about it.
However I was thinking – DAMN dude you lost a TON of weight – be fucking proud of that! Sure get the skin chopped off when it is safe to do so – but damn BE PROUD!
It is a damn find day here in Toronto – feels good to be back and it be summer. Not sure what we are going to do this afternoon but I have a funny feeling it is going to involve some ice-cubes and Stolly Blueberry Vodka!
OH – in case you have not heard – Jerry Falwell died today. Thoughts?
OH #2 – I was not working the flight – I was traveling for myself! Don’t want you thinking I sit there and read while I work – well okay I do but only when it is OK to do so! 😉
