We were at the fabric store and I found one of those pre-made panels with an elastic waist that you sew into a skirt. This one was really cute, so I wrapped it around me, and asked my sweet husband the terrible question: "Does this make me look fat?"
Of course he was the good husband and said something wonderful -- not! No, indeed! He was the honest husband and said yes! So I was surprised, but I laughed and gave him a second chance, saying "Well, of course, everything makes me look fat because I am. But does this make me look fatter?"
So now, he decides to say no! Way not to dig yourself out of a bad comment. I threatened to hit him over the head with the bolt of fabric. Probably would have, but he was in too deep!
Too bad about all that; it was a cute skirt and probably would have looked fine on me but I can't buy it now! It makes me look fat!
