I have a rather weighty issue to share with you today, so buckle up and listen up.
I knew the day would come! There’s now an airline out there charging passengers by the pound; baggage fees and a pound of flesh fees. Ouch, Shylock!
Weight, that can’t be! This is America, after all, the home of the brave, the free and the fat. Oops, I should be better at weighing my words. I meant to say overweight! Let’s start over. This is the home of the brave, the free and the overweight. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), two-thirds of U.S. adults over twenty are overweight! Holy red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting! I’m not pointing any fat fingers, mind you; especially given I’m part of that obscene count.
