Hi all! Time for the latest update to Pretty Fat, which is entering the home stretch. Here's a little preview:
“Listen,” Abby says in this slow, careful voice. “I’m sure Brody is a very nice, special man. But… well, do you really think it’s ethical to… well, you know?”
I have a bad feeling about this conversation. There isn’t enough pizza in the world to make me feel better about this conversation. I wipe a glob of cheese from the side of my mouth. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Emily,” she says. “It’s very kind of you to take him out and be a friend to him. But, well, there are laws about what you can do with an individual who’s… you know, impaired. It’s just not right.”
Oh God. I was right. This is the worst conversation ever.
“He’s not…” How do I put this? Maybe it’s best to be blunt. “He’s not retarded, Abby.”
