Water Cooler Talk meets Ichabod Crane


It’s no secret.  My husband is a bean pole.  As a result, his slender frame has been the brunt of many a jokes.  Apparently, these jokes don’t stop short of the enormous glass doors at the Large-Corporation-I-Work-For-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named.  Take last week’s conversation between Male Fashionista #1 and I at work. (Oh male fashionista, what would my blog content be like without you in my life….)


Fashionista #1: Am I fat?

Fashionista #1: You know what the problem is?  I’m “gay guy” fat but “straight guy” skinny.

Moi: {Insert Chuckles}

Fahionista #1: Your husband is “gay guy” skinny but “straight guy” anorexic.




Don’t fret my little Ichabod Crane, you’ll love it when you’re in your thirties.
