Don’t joke about eating disorders

I originally posted this as a comment in Big Fat Deal but thought it stood on its own to be a post here:

Yesterday I was at lunch with a friend of mine who happens to be extremely slender but who can scarf down a jumbo chili-cheeseburger with the best of ‘em.

We ran into some acquaintances, and as my friend’s food arrived, the acquaintance said, “I didn’t think you ate!!!”

After we finished the meal and walked out of the restaurant, my friend expressed how horrible it makes her feel when people accuse her of being anorexic.

I began to understand that my friend and I were a lot more alike than I thought – even though I’m always accused of scarfing down the Krispy Kremes.

Incidentally, I’ve lived in the only town in the region with a Krispy Kreme in it for almost three years and never stopped by.

    What in the Paula Deen are you talking about??? No doughnuts??

    Seriously though, my grandmother worked for Krispy Kreme when I was growing up. I am sure that if I ever lose enough weight I will start sweating out chocolate crullers. They are still under there somewhere, I am sure of it.

    I know, it’s crazy. I mean, if someone brings ’em into the office I’ll have a couple, but never bought ’em for myself.

    Yeah, I used to drive right by it every day…but go right into Whole Hogg for my dose of BBQ.
