Tonight's Law and Order: SVU centered around fat kids. One character said that she was constantly belittled, and then rattled off a list of horrible things people always said to her. For example, "Do you sleep in a crate?" or, "Broken any benches lately?"
I can honestly say that I was just not hated on because I was fat in highschool. It's been almost 10 years since I was a highschool student, and I can remember the 2 people who ever gave me grief for it - their names were Mike, the kid after me alphabetically, and Marc, a kid that lived on my street. There may have been more, but I just don't remember. Either it wasn't that big a deal for me, or things just aren't as bad for fat kids as people think they are.
I'm not going to say that I was prom queen or anything. I didn't sit at the popular table. I never even had a boyfriend. I didn't go to parties that often. I'm going to blame that on a) my parents never letting me do ANYTHING, and b) the fact that I was pretty square (as well as round, nyuk nyuk). I was, however, very outgoing and friendly with people, and had friends among nearly every crowd. Is there something I'm missing here? Is it really that bad for most fat kids, and I just didn't hear any of it?
Speaking of fat things, I saw Pez watch a gigantic spider crawl right in front of him. When it got close enough to me, I killed it. While I was coming down from the heebie-jeebies, THAT'S when my chubby kitty came over and started batting the spider carcass around. Useless, I tell you. Cute, but useless.
Speaking of phat talent, Taylor was AWESOME tonight - I'm telling you, y'all had better be voting for him...
