Flab and Gab

I’m in a coffee joint called Chochi’s for reasons surpassing my understanding.  Okay, I got a coupon in the mail for a half-price latte.

So shoot me.

I’m surrounded by well-endowed Latino girls talking a mile-a-minute eating donuts like Bon-Bons.  Squashed in jeans easily mistaken for sausage skins, rolls of fat hanging from their middles, reminding me of hippos you’d see on an African safari.

They’re talking about men.  “My Pedro, he no like when I come here.  He worry I leave him for Eduardo,” who winks from across the room while sweeping the floor.

They giggle like the mice in Cinderella at Pedro’s expense, wiping their mouths and chins with nails the length of Aruba.  As I sit sipping my, I think Chochi can improve on his latte experience, I wonder what it must be like being 30, giddy, well-fed, well-laid, with enough blubber to rival Moby Dick.

Uh-oh, I feel an essay coming on.


About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

    You never know if it’s worth it until you use the coupon! Sometimes it’s not… evidently they weren’t there for the coffee! ~Elle

  2. It’s interesting to get an insight into others’ lives like that, something totally from your own way of life. Sounds like they’re having a good time though.

    Susannah, I love your comparison with the mice in Cinderella. My younger daughter, now 26, and I know the entire dialog by heart. To this day, when someone says they’ll do xyz if abc, we look at each other and in unison quote, “Oooh, IF, she said IF.”

    Maybe there’s more to Eduardo than meets the eye? Perhaps Chochi employs him as bait for the girls? Every business needs its USP.

  6. I want to eat a donut without giving an Ef! Latino women never cease to amaze me with their level of body confidence. Sausage skins from size 0 to 20 … it doesn’t matter. Yes, I’m jealous.
