Recently I ran into a Mom who's son used to go to school with Oldest. I hadn't seen her in over two years.
Being Asian, the first thing she said to me when she saw me was, "Ellen! Long time no see! Oh, you got big! You look like you need to lose some weight, huh. You need to watch what you eat and exercise. We aren't getting any younger, right?"
And then she laughed. And I swear she sounded exactly like the wicked witch of the west. Looks a lot like her too, except not as green.
She just happened to get me on a bad day. Instead of my normal "grit my teeth and smile" response, I said, "That's funny, (name redacted). I was thinking you must have lost all your manners, but then I realized you never had any."
And then I laughed. And she laughed. And we both smiled big toothy smiles while hating on each other.
But I bet anything that she will never make another comment about my weight again.
