Beauty is in the Eye of the Five-Year-Old

A conversation with my daughter.

Teresa:  "Mommy, you look so SKINNY!"

Me, very flattered, proud of working out, not so proud of the chocolate covered caramels that I've been eating:  "Why, thank you!"

Teresa:  "No, really, Mommy.  Look at yourself.  You are so skinny!"

Me, having an increasingly bloated ego:  "Thank you!"

Teresa:  "Mommy, what does 'skinny' mean?"

Me, with the air slowly leaking from my balloon:  "What do YOU think it means?"

Teresa:  "I have no idea."

So much for that.
