Being 3FC educated
I may have screwed up last night...totally unintentionally!
For date night, Angie and I went shopping for some new doors, we are installing this week-end, after dinner. We ran into a lady that is a friend of ours.
A little background ~ I have known her since we were teens, over 40 years, she was, until about 3 .5 years ago, married to a friend of mine who I grew up with. He used to work for me and we talk and see each other a few times a year. He is also friends of my brother and bil...they see him a bit more than I do. The lady and I have always been on good terms, although not a lot of contact. It has been almost 30 years since she has been to my home but for many years she did my taxes until a few years ago when she went to work full time for a tax company. I would see her at the grocery store a few times a year and a few times on occasion when I would drop by their house to pay her husband or other job related stuff. So, not a lot of contact on a daily basis.
Anyway, Angie and I are looking at doors when we hear...
"Hi Gary, Hi Angie"
turning around to a voice I recognized I saw somebody else
"WOW!!" ...stumbling for what to say next, out comes "What happened? You have lost a whole person!"
"I lost 136 pounds, Gary"
"That's a me plus 11 pounds!" says Angie
I ask her how she did it and she says "I got happy!"
Then I say "Awesome, but seriously how did you do it, if you wouldn't mind telling me?"
She says through nutrition and working out.
Angie says "Eating right makes a big difference doesn't it?"
She says "It sure does, I am working with a nutritionist"
A little small talk about us remodeling the house and we say our good-byes.
I leave her with a "You look great and deserve to with all your hard work"
"Thank-you" and off she went.
Now I know everything I said and did was with heartfelt happiness for her. But for some reason I am a bit bothered that I just "blurted out" comments about her new weight loss...when, as I saw her grow over the years I never mentioned weight at all in any conversation.
Why did I do that?....I dunno....stupid-stupid.
I'm not sure it bothered her....not sure it didn't.
But I gotta tell ya, I am really pissed off at her ex-husband for not mentioning it. Just the other day he saw my brother and he asked about her. Ex husband said she was doing ok....
OK!...are you serious...OK!!! she is doing great. You never thought once her losing all that weight was worth mentioning dude? A problem all his life...we always called him..."All about ME xxxx"
Well, thanks for listening....I just wanted to get that off my chest....
I hope I wasn't too stupid...and next time I see her I will be better prepared!
Seriously, now that I think about it I must have been in shock
I didn't once mention my GRANDdaughters1&2
