"Yes honey, you do look fat"

Guys...you know if you're ever asked by your lady "Do I look fat?" The answer is, of course not!

Well, I found out yesterday that there is one situation where you can and should say yes!

I was filling in for Karen West and the Eli Young Band stopped in for an interview. When it was all said and done, we took up a couple of pics together and I uploaded them to my computer at home. Now, I just moved last week and this was the first time I had used the computer to upload pics. On top of that, Brian had installed a new wide screen monitor for me. Turns out wide screen monitors do bad...very bad things to your body in a picture.

When it stretches the picture to fit the screen...your butt...hips...thighs all stretch right along with it! Too bad, I didn't realize this and I called Brian over and asked "Do I look fat in this picture?" His knee-jerk reaction was the guy standard "No, you look great baby."

For the first time, this was NOT the right thing to say. What he should have said was, actually yes you do look bigger and there must be something wrong with the picture. So after a while, he finally realized that for the first time saying, "yes honey you do look fat" was what I wanted to hear. Then he went to work fixing the monitor so that it never does the fun-house mirror stretch on me again :)
