Pretty Fat Update

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.”
