Thanks for calling me fat. No. Really. Thank you.

"wow, you've gained a lot of weight since I last saw you"
"well, the last time you saw me I was eight months pregnant. I've lost about 40 pounds since then so that's not actually true. Thanks for calling me fat in front of my husband and kids though".
A recent conversation I had with someone has swirled in my memory for days. I've never been humiliated and insulted in front of my family. It was a jarring experience. I'm thankful that my kids aren't old enough to ask questions. However I'm happy that it happened.
