i have lived in my town here for 20 plus years. My children all attended and graduated school here. I know just about everyone if not by name at least by face.

And then there are days like today....I am at the deli counter of the supermarket, when one of these local butt heads shouts out,,,"OH MY GOD YOU WERE SO FAT"......I so wanted to say, "and you are still ugly" and your husband is sneaking around with the lady at the post office" but I didn't. I just smiled and nodded and went about my business. I may no longer be the bigger person but i sure am better than ever
