I'm not fat, I'm just big boned.

Frank Bruni’s Diner’s Journal yesterday spoke about the downside of the oversized cocktail glass craze. These giant glasses warm a drink far faster than a normal sized glass, despite the additional liquid. The part that most enamored me though was his perfect solution, “get the small glass but the individual shaker with extra martini in it” This reminded me of those childhood excursions to Friendly’s for a milkshake, with the extra bit in the shaker. Sure I had just consumed enough fat to choke a horse, but that extra little bit warmed the cockles of my fatty heart.
