During the Holiday Season there are lots of occasions for Socially Inept people to make a fool of themselves. In order to educate and, hopefully, decrease the chance of embarrassment, let’s discuss a situation and possible responses. The Scene: A Social Situation i.e. a party. Someone comments that you look nice and asks if you have lost weight. You respond with:
A. A demur “Thank you” and smile discreetly.
B. “Yes, yes, I have lost weight” you loudly proclaim knowing full well that two pounds is statistically insignificant.
C. Proclaim loudly that you are wearing a gut constrictor.*
D. Both B and C (loudly)
Leave what you thought I answered with (because, really, this is all about me) and what you think is the best socially adept answer.
*I know, I know, it has a much less descriptive name but whether you call it Spandex, Shapers, Garters, or Corsets they all DO the same thing- constrict your guts.
