...of the fatty.
Yes it's true.
Don't look so shocked.
I was waiting in the lobby of an institute I teach at and I caught a glimpse of a thundering fatty in the reflection of the door.
"State of yer wan" I thought to myself.
But then this sinking feeling crept over me.
I had another look out of me side eye.
Music from the psycho shower scene.
"Holy fuck, that's me!"
Good Lord. Holy Mother of the divine Lord Jesus Christ. How did this happen? How could this be? Because it obviously had nothing to do with the months and months of comfort eating to block out the supreme torture of endless teaching hours. Oh no, not a thing to do with that. Not a sausage.
Because I probably would have "et" that as well.
Now I love teaching and most of my students are delightful and I love the little bones of them, but some of them make me want to hurt myself and others.
The only blessed distraction I have comes in the form of a bebellied and boobalicious fat naked guy who enjoys an hourly cigarette hanging out of his window. Which, incidentally, is directly opposite the window of my classroom. May the Gods be praised. When I go to work tonight I'm going to try and get a high quality grainy and pixellated photo on my state of the art mobile phone from 1972.
Some thing boy.
But I digress. Back to the issue at hand. Drastic measures are called for. In a panicked frenzy, I directed my terror towards the interweb. I had heard whisperings that yer wan Gillian Michaels (who's she when she's at home?) has a DVD out that would make you rue the day you were born. 30 Day Shred. Especially for fatties like me. Sold!
I now wait impatiently by the postbox. It should be here by Monday. Hopefully I won't have died from a heart attack or diabetes by then. I think I might spend this time wisely, making a countdown calendar. Everyone knows that countdown calendars are the best things ever. Especially if they have glitter on them.
Note to self: buy glitter.
30 days. Let's see how that goes. I'll have to keep myself busy, because everyone knows that idle hands lift kebabs to fatty's mouths.
What else could I achieve in thirty days I wonder?
5,000 words of my thesis?
Why not shur.
I'll be keeping ye updated on this most recent undertaking.
In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for dodgy photos of a naked fat man taken from behind a plant.
I know, I'm so good to you.
