The Fat ReunionTHE FAT REUNION
By Ned Fox
My wife and I had been invited to a family reunion at her aunt and uncles place at the lake. What was different about this reunion, was that it was to last nearly three weeks. Katie's aunt and uncle were retired and financially quite well off. They were also corpulent , coming honestly by it. They all were fairly short and as they grew older had gained quite a bit of weight. The other family gatherings I had attended had seemed nothing more than an excuse to eat all day. When I heard that this one was to be nearly three weeks I was a little worried.
Katie told me about it after returning from a visit with her mom. She said that Aunt Mary and Uncle Dave wanted to have a reunion for everyone at their "cabin" by the lake. Their "cabin" was a small estate with a six thousand square foot house and several acres of land right on a large lake in the Midwest. I didn't r
Wife vs MomWife vs. Mom
By Ned Fox
My wife and mother in law had been battling over "weight" practically since my wife's birth! My mother in law is quite fat, she is only five foot two and has weighed as much as two hundred and seventy five pounds. She loves her "figure" and so does my father in law.
My wife, who since puberty has been plump, has struggled to keep her weight under control. Since we got married my mother in law has pressured by wife to start gaining and get a nice "married figure", which in her world means getting FAT!
I am an FA so, my wife can never weigh to much! One of her hang ups though is she does not want us to be an odd couple, with her round and fat and me relatively slim.
Sally usually battled with her mom. The last time my wife and I had been to her family's house, Sally and her mom had a battle royal. Her sister's were both pretty fat, so my mother in law felt that Sally was in some way disrespecting her for not g
Blood BrothersBrookie always holds my hand when we cross the street. She's never given a reason for it, she just does it. It's become this unspoken rule with us that whenever we cross the street together, she slips her hand in mine and I lace my fingers through hers and we walk hand-in-hand until we reach the other side and she drops her hand and we both wipe our palms on our jeans. Brookie's a little scared of crossing the street. Her poppa died in a car crash when we were six. He was a pedestrian. She's never gotten over it.
Brookie is my best friend going on sixteen years now, which is pretty impressive considering we're both sixteen. We don't have some cute little story about how we were born in the same hospital on the same day or about how our mothers were best friends long before they were pregnant with us and somehow passed on that bond while we were still in utero. No, Brookie and I met the same way ever
MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
