Is it your business?

So yesterday, I had a Soda and biscuits as breakfast and by 2pm, I felt hunger pangs and knew nothing else would make sense until I eat.

Just as I was about to ask the office assistant to help me pick up something for lunch, my colleague said, haaa, Mrs, you are getting big o, maybe you should skip lunch today...I slowly turned to look him over properly, I took in his protruding tummy, made more obvious by the almost bursting buttons on his shirt, shook my head, ignored him and kept on speaking with the office assistant.

He "wisely" waited for the guy to leave then he repeated his statement...at this point, I really couldn't hold my tongue anymore cos this was a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black, so I told him....Mr, when I get any where near you, then I know for sure that there is cause for alarm....number 2, it is no business of yours how big or how small I am, number 3, when I start wearing size 10 dresses, then maybe you can talk, but as far as I still fit into my size 8 dresses, then I am not overweight, also even when I start wearing size 10 dresses, you still do not have the right to talk cos as long as I'm 5ft11, I reserve the right to wear size 10 dresses.


That said and done I turned to face my work....now some may say I should have kept mute, but in my defense, I'm done with people discussing my weight, last year, it was that I looked too small to be a married woman, this year that nature has allowed me put on some flesh, people still talk, so I'm sending this post out as a warning, If you see me and you think you have something to say about my weight, do yourself a favor and let it remain just that....a thought....Now that being said, I think i can face my work...hehehe


Ok, to be fair, I wasn't angry at all at him, just amused at how people carry extra "wahala" on their head, plus, I'm proud of my new found size...D says he like the "feel" *wink wink*...lol.

  14. Ha! There's only one reason a guy would come over to you and not mind his own business...

    He has some kind of crush on you...watch out for that one.

    Just my observant mind speaking!
