So, this is a conversation that happened between an adult mom and her middle-aged daughter, although I’m not saying which adult mom and which middle-aged daughter. I mean, there are billions of mothers and daughters in the world. It could be any of them. Really.
Adult mom: So, why don’t you eat pasta, potatoes and rice anymore?
Middle-aged daughter: Well, because I feel less bloated when I'm not eating carbs…and I don’t know if you noticed, but I lost about 25 pounds since the last time I saw you.
Adult mom: 25 pounds? Well, you look great.
Middle-aged woman: Aww, thanks Ma…
The middle-aged woman is visibly touched. Her mom thinks she looks great. Life is rainbows and unicorns. But then, weirdly, the mother sighs, shakes her head sadly, and in a very concerned voice says...
Adult mom:...But you just can’t get rid of that big stomach, can you?
The middle-aged daughter really loves adult mom, but thinks she might be showing early signs of senility. Or she's drinking too many Manhattans in that retirement community of hers. The husband of the middle-aged daughter has barely been able to stop laughing since he heard this. Although that could be any middle-aged husband. In the world. Really.
