I just hate to be disappointed by one of my heroes.
I recently found out that an artist whom I really admired was FaceBook friends with one of my friends. I sent the artist a friend request (with an explanation that she didn’t know me but I was a long time fan of her art). I was thrilled when my friend request was accepted.
Today the artist posted a picture of “our Cold Springs Elementary School carpool, I’m guessing early 1960’s in Santa Barbara, CA.
That was cool.
What came next was not cool – at all.
“Notice the complete lack of childhood obesity going on here– I don’t even think we could have fit all nine kids into one car if that were the case!”
Excuse me? Seriously?
Gee, no fatties in your life – or at least not in your car pool; thank goodness.
Well smell you!
I posted the following comment:
Um. I was born in 1954 and I have been fat my entire life. Just because you didn’t ride with any fatties, we did exist.
And then I unfriended her.
