Gonna lead with that, are ya?

A bit back I ran into an acquaintance I’d not seen in a while…at the time I’d lost probably 50 pounds since I last encountered her…

“Oh my god! You’ve lost weight! Are you sick! You’ve got cancer don’t you?”

Me: *blinks* “Really? You’re gonna lead with that?”

That’s a hell of a world view…

I’ll see you on the road.

    I’ve had a number of incidents where someone last saw me 85 pounds ago, and don’t recognize me until I speak. So far my favorite of those was at a party when a former co-worker was introducing her fiancee to the rest of the crew and skipped me entirely. “I’m Dave, She sat directly across from me for a year, I thought we got along…” “OMG, I didn’t even recognize you!”
    I have had a couple of people ask if I’d lost the weight on purpose, “Didn’t want to say anything, in case it was medical or something”.
