We Shall All Be Rotund

According to the linked report, it appears that being fat is almost inevitable. My guess is that most who are reading this post know that we all could probably learn to live off of the fat of the land a tad more. All execpt for Justin. So that he is not too embarrased I will not reveal Justin's full identity to the blogosphere. But he knows who he is. He is approaching his thirties more quickly than he would like to admit, and he brags to some of us at church that he has gained no weight since high school. Sheesh! Until just recently, all he ever eats is rabbit food mixed with tofu. But now, his wife seems to have grown equally frustrated with his lack of rotundity and she now sends him to Bible study (oops, I may have given his identity up) with the most scrumptious desserts. He maintains that he continues to weigh in at his normal poundage. That is why this report is so encouraging for the fatter sorts of folks (like most of you reading this because you do little to break a sweat other than running to the kitchen for more . . .). I know, the report comes from the angle that those of us whose body mass index tends to daily increase, need to be more concerned about not being obese. However, I tend to see it as an indicator that no one can avoid it. Including Justin! He too will get fat and there is nothing he can do about it. It's a lot like fibromyalgia. If you don't have it and can't drum an excuse to get it yet, don't worry, we all will have it one day and there is nothing you can do about it AND if we are patient and complain enough, we'll eventually get the government to pay us money because of it (ok - that was a rant). Anyway, just know Justin, you can run but you can't hide. You too shall be rotund.

Wow! I can't believe I was actually mentioned on a blog.
My waistline has yet to change, but my ego is ballooning out of control.
