Women FULL of education



We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only
skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my
kids, a good dinner with a man who cooked it, and lunch with my
friends. With time we gain weight because we accumulate so much
information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room it
distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren’t heavy, we are
enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at
my butt in the mirror I will think, Good god, look how smart I am!

I just wish I were holding Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, but Hey, we were in the Deep South, and I was gaining insight about the Low Country.
OK, so I wish I had been reading Beach Music.

We rented this SUV at Durham Raleigh and we made our little nest back here, using the folded down middle seat for our foot stool and ate chocolate until we came to a graveyard or something else as interesting.
I have much more to tell about this adventure.

I too am highly educated and getting smarter every day! I cannot however, read in the car without getting car sick. I would hate to regurgitate all that knowledge.

Now it all makes sense. And here I thought my husband loved me for my big boobs -- it really was my brain he was after.

When we've visited the Low Country I love to read books about it too!
Are we cool, or what?
Both so smart.

Yup, I am of the most learned. Food is love. I don't care what anyone says. We are built alike, you and I.

Oh, Lynn. This is terrific news. I was all set to join Weight Watchers but apparently, that would be equal to getting a lobotomy.

So my ass isn't big, it's smart? I like that!

That has to be the absolute best logic about weight gain I've ever come across! And it does make sense too, ya know! Well I think so and obviously you do too so we can also say "Great minds think alike" can't we?
