Fat Talk Free Week Is Over, Dude

photo by Barak Yedidia

I think this is a lovely photo, in which everyone in my family looks great, our yard looks appropriately autumnal, and even the broken concrete pieces forming our leach field's retaining wall appear picturesque. But I also think that my right breast looks larger than my head, and that my overall shape is displeasing -- to me at least.

I told Jennyalice about my concerns. She was sympathetic, and asked if there was anything she could help me do, go on walks, etc.

"Hell no!" I said, "I'll just ask Barak if we can do a reshoot from a different angle."


  1. This really did make me laugh out loud.

  2. Me TOO! Still laughing actually.

    Yes, laughing!

    But re: the picture; isn't the problem just an unfortunate shadow under aforementioned right breast? Can't Barak do a little magic to take that out?

  4. Barak already did the reshoot. I also asked him for a more close-up take, given the personalities we're trying to showcase. But yes he is a Photoshop wizard and could have appealed to my vanity that way, too.

    What, your boob isn't really bigger than your head?

    And, strategic placement of children can be a boon, too.
