Is this weird?
Ah, hello there. Sorry for not writing in so long.
I haven't been on for more than two months.
And before then, I just had nothing journal-worthy to write.

But today is different. I had slept in, as usual on a Saturday.
Then I was woken up by a terrible muscle cramp in my calf.
I did the usual stuff you do when you just wake up. Then I got myself some of the yogurt I had in the fridge and some tea. As I was finishing off my blueberry greek yogurt my Mom woke up and headed to the kitchen. Sounds normal enough, right?

What happened next was not normal in the slightest. She came out of the kitchen with a small plate. On the plate was these dark yellow burnt things. They where pan-fried plantain bananas. My Mom noticed I wasn't eating them and she picked one up, dipped it in sweetened condensed milk and tried to force it on me. I refused to eat it. I'm not a very picky person, I'm almost the opposite of picky but I'm very wary of foods I've never eaten before. I went into the kitchen to get one of the bananas that I was used to. Then I retreated to another room to use the laptop. AND SHE FOLLOWED ME. I caved and bit one. It wasn't bad but the burnt taste was a bit off-putting, She then relented, more defeated than victorious.

Thing is, the whole time she was saying I was white like it was a bad thing,
She said I was really white. Should I be offended? To top it all off, when I said I could gain five pounds from eating that stuff she said, and I quote "Yeah, then maybe you'd attract a man!"
I'm over 300 pounds. I can't really gain anymore weight than this! My body's at it's limit! I'm trying to lose weight, dammit!

But my question to you all is simple. Would you consider all that weird?
I know I do.
