If This Were Easy…


Reason #15: Because that seat doesn’t come in my size

Filed under: reason — Easy @ 9:00 am

I’ve spent a lot of time in theaters lately — seing Dirty Dancing, Cirque du Soleil, Kris Kristofferson and Jersey Boys.

None of those seats really fit me. The Toronto Center for the Arts certainly came closest, but it wasn’t great. Cirque du Soleil was downright painful — there was a crosspiece in the folddown seats that was digging into my back. Kris Kristofferson was mainly a pain for my mother, who was stuck between me and a guy who made me look thin and who also hasn’t learned to sit like a polite fat person — dude, if you’re already taking up half someone’s else’s seat, you don’t get to sit with your legs splayed wide, and your arms planted on both arm rests.

I’d like to not be the person that makes people look angry/annoyed/scared/uncomfortable when they see her coming to sit next to them.
