what not to say

July 2, 2009

She: Ooof I really feel sluggish after Barcelona. I feel so uncomfortable with my body!

He: Maybe you should go to the gym.

She shoots him a very nasty what-did-you-just-say look.

He: No, I mean… I know I always feel better about myself after I go the gym.

She still looks at him, this time tilts head to one side. Not blinking.

He: But..but of course you might not feel the same. You always say you gain weight after going to the gym.

She tilts her head to the other side. Still not blinking. This time hands on hips.

He: Maybe you should go to the spa. That always makes you feel good. Shall we go tomorrow, darling?
