Shape Up's and Cheeseburgers
It is amazing what you catch even when you are not paying real attention to things around you. You've all seen the commercials...unless you don't have TV, in which case there is no judgement here, I spent five years without TV,.....anyway, I am referring to the commercials for the Sketchers Shape Ups. And there is another company that makes them. Of course the commercials show skinny ladies in the tiniest shorts on the planet strutting around getting into even better shape with the amazing shoes. They promise better butts, better legs, just by walking around normally. I am not going to state my opinion on them because I don't want to alienate any of you who might be sporting a pair of them right now.....oh, who am I kidding, this is the most ridiculous product ever. Actually I am sure they work to some extent, but, unless you're a thin girl in fairly good shape I don't think there will be a visible difference by wearing these shoes that basically make you look like you have a clubbed foot. Technically two clubbed feet. Anyway, while sitting in the airport, and attempting to stay awake, I overheard a woman across from me on the phone. ....I am just eating a sandwich and waiting for the flight. Okay I will see you in a couple of hours. Love you. Bye. Then I look over and realize her "sandwich" is a Burger King cheeseburger, fries and a coke and she's a chubby lady. Hey, no judgement here, I am on the chunkier size too. I don't care if you want to call a burger a "sandwich" when you are talking to your hubby on the phone. Technically if you are in another city, you are on vacation, even if you are traveling for work. Eat yourself a f-ing cheeseburger. Then my eyes migrate down to her feet and what do I see, Sketchers Shape Ups. Because I was tired the first thing I thought was to ask her if she has noticed a difference in her tushy. I was honestly curious to get a user's review of them. But, then I realized that even though I don't technically mean to mock her, it would definitely be mockery to ask her about her shape ups while she is munching on a cheeseburger. So I just kept my big mouth shut. But, I did wish I could sneak a photo. I didn't want to mock her to her face, but I definitely will do it on my blog. Choose a side lady. Either you are trying to "shape up" or you are lying about your "sandwich" and embracing your chunky booty. No shoes cancel out a cheeseburger. Decide where you stand.
