Read full description of the books:
Meg, Laurie's coworker said after Laurie came in distraught over her gynecologist calling her fat,] ".... I have a nice story to tell you. There was a chubby girl in my class and she used to get made fun of all the time. Then, one day, she said something that I'll never forget. She turned around and told the skinny girls who were making fun of her, 'I'd rather be a happy Magic Marker than a toothpick with boogers on it.'
Oh my God.
"Who is the Magic Marker in this scenario?" I asked. "I'm the Sharpie, aren't I, Meg? I am the Sharpie and you and Laura are the toothpicks, huh?"
"Troy's a happy Magic Marker, too," Meg offered.
This method of consoling, however, rarely works. Because you know what happens when you tell a fat person they're FAT? Well, they get sad and then they eat a cookie. They get sad and then they eat a doughnut. They get sad and then they eat a pizza. And then, the next day after you've called them fat because you "love them and want them to get healthy," THEY'RE FATTER. If you want a chunky to gain some skinny ground, tell them they look nice. Tell them they look slimmer despite the obvious bad choice of the horizontal-stripe capri pants. Give them something to work with, something to build on.
