Yesterday I overheard a group of middle-school girls chatting after school.
"Oh my God! She is so fat!" shrieked one.
"I KNOW! Have you seen her eat?" asked another, making loud gobbling noises.
Wow, how cruel kids can be, I reflected sadly, recalling a book on eating disorders I'd recently edited.
The girls' conversation continued.
"Remember how little she was when she was a puppy?!"
