Notes From the Carpool Line

If a friend says, "I need to lose some weight," while peering over either tea cup or cocktail glass, the only, only, appropriate response is, "I think you look wonderful." If you can go on to say something like, "And who is cutting your hair, he's an absolute genius," all the better. No one today does not know the ins and outs of calories and fat grams and building the core. What she is asking for is reassurance, not your routine. For the love of Pete.
