Wow.

Looking around the little coffee shop where I hold my office hours, the students seem to be nearly evenly divided between "Forcripessake, eat a freakin' cheeseburger, already!" and "EARTHQUAKE--wait, no, just someone who needs to STOP eating for a few weeks."  There don't seem to be very many in the healthy range, and those few that are tend to be guys, not girls.

  1. I've been patching highway near a local university. Your assessment is accurate.

    My favorite was a young woman in tiny, tight shorts, with enough cellulite to complete 200 years of the study of obesity.

    1. I will admit to being about thirty pounds overweight (after two kids and a slow thyroid, I count that a small victory), but I didn't see many who were ONLY thirty pounds overweight.

    2. Nope. I'd say the average is around 100 pounds, and that's the thin ones.

    3. Kinda gross. Even worse, they don't seem to understand that NOBODY wants to see that in tight and/or skimpy clothes.

    1. Giggles are good, though. Boost your immune system.
