Between THICK and thin

As my girlfriends and I sat in an African themed restaurant in the heart of picturesque Laguna Beach this past weekend; our conversation turned to the great summer slim down. For those unaware of this phenomenon, it the period of time when those who have once again forgotten that there are only five months between parkas and bikinis engage in an insane and desperate effort to shed the weight. Then somehow the conversation took a sharp right into the case of African tribes that seclude and fatten brides for weddings, a topic that horrified most. I volunteered that I thought it was refreshing that not everyone regarded slenderness as the epitome of beauty. All this as I chomped on my salmon caesar salad.
