I was chatting with an employee standing outside my office door when another employee who was getting coffee turned to him, looked him in the stomach and remarked, “Hmm…packing on the weight eh?”  Well that’s not bad in itself, especially if said by…hmmm…me?  But no, the speaker was this, how do I put it nicely? full-bodied woman.  Or maybe I should say fuller bodied woman.  The object of her comment was not in ‘full’ in any sense of the word, although he had the makings of a belly happening.

At first the irony was lost on me and I joined in and commented on the fella’s paunch, then it hit me and that’s when I was lost for words. Like seriously, what the heck do you say?  I did say a lot in my mind though…
