keeping the peace

Today was the graduation party for a family friend of ours. Her older brother and I are the same age and we were in baby group together, and our moms are best friends. There was a crapton of food – tabbouleh, Greek salad, egg salad, awesome half-sour dill pickles, cookout stuff, two kinds of guacamole, tomato salad, bean salad, pasta salad, and a rice salad.

I was sitting at the end of the table outside and L, who’s a mother of another friend of mine and the older brother, was talking about how she wanted some of the rice salad but she was on Weight Watchers. And J, the woman who made the rice salad, was all “It’s a Weight Watchers recipe! I just added more veggies! It’s only 2 points!” And then they started talking about how they lost 15 pounds a few years ago and put 10 back on, and blah blah points and blah blah fat and OH MY GOD SHUT UUUUUUP.

But I managed to keep my mouth shut. Because there’s a time and a place. And a party for someone I love a lot is neither. But goddamn.

And then I had two slices of cake. Screw you guys.
