Does This Country Make Me Look Fat?!

Probably like most of the American population, I could afford to drop a few pounds (I call them my “Donna’s mocha pounds),” but I wouldn’t consider myself fat. Well, these skinny Albanians make me feel like I am a big fat cow. Today I came into church, wearing a pair of pants I love and thought were slimming, and immediately one of the youth said loudly, “Wow! You’re fat.” Again, later today, another Albanian said, “your not fat here (pointing to my waist), but you’re really fat here (pointing to my hips).” Unfortunately, this is an everyday occurrence for me! People frequently ask me why I’m “fat”, and sometimes I just shrug me shoulders, but if I’m in a good mood I just tell them I love chocolate too much!!
