    First twenty people to arrive recieve a gift the advertisement read.

    I arrived early, only to find 22 other people already in line, waiting for the doors to open. Hmmmm. How to get rid of three of them?
    I considered various methods. I could yell "Fire!"
    But that might be dangerous. I could run through the parking lot, randomly trying car doors, hoping to set off at least three car alarms....but then I'd have to run back to grab their spots in line, and last time I checked, my five-foot, 300-pound frame didn't like running too much.

    So, being 300lb and square of shape, I decided to use that to my advantage ... being overweight/squat has to have some advantages, right?

    BOOM! I managed to eliminate not three, but 10 people from the line. Apparently Chanel #5 and my McDonald's grease-laden pheromones, when combined, form a combustible substance with the explosive properties of Dy-no-mite.

    Now severely injured but number 11 in line, I was finally able to read the fine print on the ad. The "gift" was not quite what I was hoping for.

    Dieter's Weekly: a weekly eZine that helps fat people diet and exercise their way back to good health.

    maguijoposted 7 years ago

    Who the hell needs that? I thought to myself. I'm in great shape! Why, only a truly healthy person could survive the explosion that annihilated 10 people, one of whom...I'd like to point out...was a very slim Ms. I'm Too Sexy for This.

    But then I remembered prom night, and how I was a little pudgy around the middle. My boyfriend didn't mind though, especially after he hit the spiked punch multiple times.

    My mother always said that fat girls never get kissed but I proved her wrong that night.

    Still, who was I kidding?  I was fat.  Not only fat but a clinically obese Two-Ton-Tessy.  Omar made my dresses.

    An old man with clacking dentures smiled widely as he thrust Dieter's Weekly into my hot, corpulent little hand.

    I shoved my way through the mass of bodies.  Breathing hard I flipped through the magazine.  On page 183 I saw it.

    But then I remembered I hated to read because of dyslexia caused by a severe brain injury as a child; I had decided to find out once and for all if Santa could go down a chimney. And how!

    Fortunately, it was nothing too text-y. Mostly pictures. I quickly gleaned the content and sat back in my chair, stunned.

    For I saw an advertisement for Cliff bars, and plenty of people had backed up their claim--they were actually a nutritious and good tasting snack, almost too good to be health food.

  18. maguijo profile image61
    maguijoposted 7 years ago

    But the reason they were called Cliff Bars is that they have a unique effect of shoving you off the "cliff" of weight-loss stagnation. Yes! A snack bar that actually burns more calories than it contains! IN FACT, 100 times more calories than it contained.

    I slapped the magazine shut and barreled out of the building and into my yellow Smart (I had lived in Europe for a time and that is where I'd acquired my squashed trunk beauty).

    Weaving in and out of traffic I tried not to think of potato chips as I tasted the salty sweat on my philtrum.

    wondered what the heck a philtrum is that I was licking sweat off of. Also how in the world was I fitting into a Smart Car? Had my world gone completely mad?

    Hmmm.
    When I raced out of the building, I reflexively grabbed a bunch of Cliff Bars from the free samples bin and stuffed them in my mouth while lurching to my car...and THAT explains how I managed to fit my no-longer-300-pound body into the Smart Car.
