not quilt related....
pet peeve of mine....as one who has been overweight for some time, it has been my extremely bad fortune to have met several people who dispense weight loss, nutrition, exercise advice ad nauseum aka fat police. there have also been several others who think they know what is best and/or "God's will" for me and my life, but that's for another day. these fat police include medical people, of course; not the same ones who used to smoke in hospitals back in the day. but it is their job and, being purveyors of judgments of every type, they often wrongly assume becoming thin solves every problem. they, like the weathermen, spout these pronouncements based (often) on statistics. did you know, for instance, that woody allen's father died a chain smoker at age 99? obviously genetics trumped behavior....i could rave on and on but brevity dictates otherwise. my hope for today is that all those do-gooder nutrition mavens have a really rotten day, and that the next time they decide to spout their self-righteous and usually unwanted advice to one who probably already knows they are fat, someone hauls off and whacks them in the knees with a baseball bat, hopefully producing a cure.
