I've wasted time this morning trying to find and upload the scene from Grosse Pointe Blank where Joan Cusack's character, in describing her high school reunion says, "It's as though everyone had swelled". Apparently such a clip does not exist and if it did, I would be unable to upload it from YouTube. You young people and all your technology!
A full week plus after indulging in some bread-based appetizers (bruschetta), my body has decided to let go of a little bit of the water weight/bloat/inflammation that happened after I ate (for me) too many simple carby things. My butt must be like a sponge that retains every drop of water that it can! Drives me crazy. It's that hungover poufy feeling that makes it difficult to get back on track, I think because physically, I feel Off. Not exactly how I wanted to go to the reunion, but what the hell.
I'm back to feeling closer to normal which is good but just in time to travel, which my body hates with an equally retentive passion. I'll just be Puffy McPufferton, BigAss SpongeButt at the reunion. Do you think that'll fit on a name tag?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Reduce the swelling.
