How You Know You Are Fat

Scene 1:

Jan comes to stay over at my place. As she drags her back up the driveway, my neighbour says, “Long time no see! Did you just come back from a slimming center?”

To which Jan replies, “Er… I’m not Jo. I’m her sister.”

Uncomfortable pause. “Oh, but you two look so alike”

Scene 2:

Pastor Jen stops Jan at church, “Send my regards to your parents. Oh, and you DO look so much slimmer! And your face is sharper too! What have you been doing to get rid of the weight?”

To which Jan replies, “Er… I’m not Jo. I’m her sister.”

Uncomfortable pause. “Oh, but you two look so alike”

Babi! But heck, I'm going to the gym now, awright?? Not like I'm losing any weight from it since I stuff my face right after each session.

Yes, we look so alike that we get this very frequently. But wait! This not only applies to my sisters but my cousins too! In fact, I’ll prove this to you. This CNY, I’m planning to take a photo of all my cousins and do a “Where’s Jo?” contest. Sometimes, I myself can’t tell the difference at a glance.

That's so weird because I think you and Jan look like night and day (facially). You do look VERY much like one of your cousins on your dad's side. One of you posted a picture sometime ago.

How rude of those people! I think you're lovely. I understand how you feel, I feel like a fatty right now too but I don't really care as I like eating too much....

ha if you think thats weird that everyone mistakes Jan for you, I used to get mistaken for Grace - as her twin brother! In Australia everyone would always say that we looked like twins. Also, once I took Dad to Max Cooke's concert like 10 years ago and there was this person there that met us both and said "Hi Ron, is this your brother?" Hummph I guess I could look at it two ways:-
1) Im old looking
2) Dad is really young looking

Nah Ron, you're just an old hag.
