284. Fat gets ugly

284fat

Kimberley was feeling ill. She felt sick, like she almost wanted to vomit but not quite. She felt like that nearly all the time.

She made an appointment to see the doctor.

“Doctor,” she said, “I feel sick.”

“That’s because you’re fat,” said the doctor. “You should lose a bit of weight. Do something about it, and you won’t feel sick all the time. I repeat: you’re fat.”

Kimberley was outraged. “How dare the doctor call me fat!” she screamed. “How dare he!”

But she was fat. It’s just that the word “fat” is not an acceptable word to use of a person who is fat. She was fat, fat, fat. Fat as a saggy bag of pork fat gristle, oozing waves of slobbery overhanging ugly fat, fat, fat.

Kimberley sued the doctor and won. You should see her now that she can afford more food! She’s so fucking fat a bulldozer blade wouldn’t fit across her backside to push her somewhere else. She’s changed doctors, of course. The new one gives her a pill if she’s feeling queasy. He doesn’t dare tell her she’s a saggy bag of pork fat gristle, oozing waves of slobbery overhanging ugly fat, fat, fat.

113. You make me sick

Gudrun smoked.

Gina didn’t.

Neither Gina nor Gudrun knew each other.

Gudrun stopped at the service station to buy some cigarettes. Gina was behind him in the line.

“How can you smoke?” ranted Gina. “It’s disgusting. You should think about your health. It’s totally irresponsible. Think of your family, and what it’s costing the health system. Get a grip on your life. You stink and it’s repulsive and you’re a loser. You make me sick.”

Gudrun paid for his cigarettes and left. He got in his car. His friend in the car asked: “Who was that woman you were talking to in there? The really fat one with the three hamburgers and an ice-cream?”
