“Wishful thinking ain’t gonna shrink your fat ass, Bernice. Like my ol’ Daddy used to say, ‘Wish in one hand, shit in the other, see which one gets full the fastest.'”
“I know that, Elmer, and I’m tryin’ to lose weight. You don’t need to insult me every day.”
“I’m just trying to help.”
Six months later as they were getting ready for bed, Elmer said, “Hot damn, Bernice, you sure do look sexy, losin’ all that weight and all. How ’bout it tonight, gal?”
“Like your ol’ Daddy used to say, Elmer, ‘Wish in one hand, shit in the other….'”
Either way a handful. ‘Haps Bernice joined #MeToo! gk

I found this story quite disturbing. Sexual abuse should be taken seriously!

Where is the sexual abuse? Saying someone is overweight if they are? No. Asking your partner (who you’re just about to get into bed with) if they want to have sex? No. Sorry, don’t see it. And I’m a ‘gal’.
