The following is a real conversation. My friend’s name has been changed because…she’d probably want me to.
Me: my health insurance broker called me skinny today.
Me: but it was over the phone. and I lied about my weight. soooo……
Serena: omg. that is really funny. I mean….they asked me my weight and height before they gave me my IV. and I lied about my weight.
Me: oh good.
Serena: but, then I was like NO I LIED because I didn’t want them to not give me enough and it wouldn’t work!
Me: how much did you lie about?
Serena: 5 lbs. it was embarrassing
Me: I lied by 7.
Me: ok I just lied again. it was 9
Serena: that’s a lot
