This weekend I was taking a bath and getting out my hand slipped and down I went – hard, hitting my back on the side of the tub. I hit so hard that I almost blacked out — something that has never happened to me before.
You know what I have to show for this? A small bruise and a little bit of ache.
Thank you fat. Thank you for protecting me from my own clutz.
This may be the first time that I’ve fallen and realized that it was not because I was fat, and that my fat protected me – a lot.
I should have known better. I was using an olive oil soap and I didn’t take the (usual) precaution of drying my hands thoroughly before hoisting my fat ass out of the tub; and my hand slipped. Duh. I’ll take no shit for $2,000 Alex.
So if you find yourself taking a spill, don’t just blame the fat, stop and think about what really happened (so you can hopefully avoid the problem in the future); remember that everybody takes a tumble now and then (including average sized people) and thank your fat for cushioning the fall.
