Eavesdropping With Matt (Episode Fifty-Five: An Introduction to Anatomy)

Dedicated to the women of the Vancouver Swim Club, where I overheard this very conversation while we were having our back to school barbecue at the park!

These are doughnut hamburgers.
With eggs. Try not to throw up all over my blog.
Woman #1: Look, your daughter has chosen to eat doughnuts, cupcakes and cookies for dinner.

Woman #2: Enjoy it while you can!

Woman #1: You won't be able to do that when you're an adult.

Kid: Why not?

Woman #1: Because you'll have hips.

It's true! She'll have hips. More Eavesdropping with Matt here.

    And this is the kind of eating-disorder creating talk that really needs to calm down in society in my opinion.

  2. Yeah. It's true. My kids ate freely of the junk and were merely told the same thing my parents told me, "Your stomach wouldn't hurt if you'd eat food that's good for you."
