Colombian Honesty

Today I was telling the lady who helps my grandmother that I ate a brownie. She told me I was too fat and how did I expect to lose weight eating brownies. My American sensibilities are not used to such honesty.

Update: My grandmother’s loving answer when I told her what the lady said was: “She’s just saying that because she didn’t see how fat you were before.”
