In conversation with girlfriends who also have 'weight issues':
CS: I don't really care about getting fit, all *I* want is to be thin!
Girlfriends in chorus: Oh gosh! Me too!
Conclusion: Growing old doesn't make us any wiser; it just makes us more honest about – and oddly, more accepting of – how shallow we are.
*Friends who have the same amount depth (or the lack of it) as you. :)
