It seems I kind of grow on you
Dear Marc, did you really get fat? I read in an interview that you thought you'd gotten a little chubby. But to me, you look the same as always. A nice man of medium height and normal build.
I understand the abundance of slim models around you might make you feel bigger than you would have if you lived like the people you went to kindergarten with. 10-1 they're all bigger sized than you now.
I'm not fat or skinny. I'm average, but I have something strange. I leave a fattening impression.
I meet people I haven't seen in a month or two, and they go "Emi, have you lost some weight"? And I haven't. I've looked the same and have worn the same size (and unfortunately the very same clothes) for the past 7 years.
My theory is: I meet the people and we look at each other and then for some reason, unknown to mankind, my impression starts to rise like dough in their minds the moment we part.
Why? How should I dress to avoid this? Or should I embrace it? Perhaps this is my one unique feature. How pathetic. Some people would surely be happy to receive those "did you lose weight" comments, but the situation only makes me embarrassed.
-e, the same as before. Always.
