Memories of a Fat Kid

  1. Excitedly running up to my uncle in the park and grabbing the bag of brownies he was holding...it was warm?
    It was dog poop.
  2. Getting the call that I'd made the crew team!
    My grandmother saying "Awww sweetie, fat girls can't do that sport!" 😘
  3. Relishing fancy chocolates from an impossibly fancy box.
    That I took from my grandma's suitcase. That was a gift for someone else. That I lied about doing. With chocolate all over my face. 💃
  4. Throwing caution to the wind and jumping in at the 6th grade pool party!
    Realizing midair that a cannonball might not have been the most strategic dive of choice.
