I love how different cultures perceive beauty.
The other day a friend said to me, “Ah, Miranda! You have got sooooo fat”
“Thank you” I said, since it was meant as a compliment.
“Are you not breastfeeding? You’re supposed to get thin when you’re breastfeeding”
“Oh I am, but I’m eating lots too!”
“Yes you must be. I almost didn’t recognize you! I thought you were---------- (names a lass who is not so thin).” Looks me up and down with an appraising eye.
“Yes, very very fat! Huge in fact!”
“Thank you! Thank you very much”
