Fat skinny person

Not too long ago, as I was hugging someone goodbye, did I realize something that I didn’t realize before: I’m squishy.

Even though my body-type resembles that of a playing card – broad from the front, but paper-thin when turned on its side – it still doesn’t mean there’s an inch to pinch. Abs and flabs. Truth be told, I’m a fat skinny person.

But, what is a fat skinny person, and how can you spot them in a crowd? It’s quite easy. In fact, the only way you’ll ever know if they're a fat skinny person is by hugging them. If they give, like a loaf of bread, you’ve found one.

Unlike a fat fat person, a fat skinny person is thin, but they’re not necessarily toned (contrary to popular belief, a fat fat person can actually have quite a bit of muscle tone).

Once when I mentioned this to another kin, he recoiled in horror. He didn’t consider himself to be a fat skinny person (even though he was, and still is). We’re no longer on speaking terms.

That reminds me, only hug me if you really want to know what a fat skinny person feels like.

Slim. Thin. Skinny. Call it what you will -- you can wear "baby wale cords" (? I'm assuming that means a corduroy fabric with a fine wale) and that means you're doing something right.

Sorry, I call foul.

Anyone who has visible ab muscles does not have "fat" in any way shape or form in their physical description.

But thanks for the soft core porn anyway ;-)

I'm pretty sure you're just a plain old skinny person, but I'd need to see some higher-resolution photos to be sure. ;-)
