Weight gain
A reader sent this witticism via email. It has a definite ring to it. Here goes: “My 60-year kindergarten reunion is coming up soon and I’m concerned about the 195 pounds I’ve gained.” Sounds about right. My spare tire says it all.

My 60 year old kindergarten reunion is coming up soon and I am worried about the 196 pounds I’ve gained.

My 60 year kindergarten reunion is coming up. I will be hard to recognize since I have gained 175 pounds.
