Last night, I went to Tequila Mundo with my husband and friends of ours. We went last year, too. It’s a blast, especially for tequila lovers like us.
It’s also a great place to people watch. And midway through the event, people get really friendly. It’s amazing what tequila does to a person!
The coolest thing about these types of events are the people that come to them. There are the hipsters and the conservatively dressed. Almost every ethnicity and culture is represented. And, for a few hours, all is right in the world. We are all united by our interest in tequila and music. We dance together. We laugh together. We do shots of different brands of tequila together.
It’s pretty awesome.
Until you walk into the ladies room and have to wait in line.
That’s when we noticed a beautiful woman wearing a black maxi dress. Her hair was fabulously wild and a flower was tucked behind her ear. She exuded confidence, big booty be damned. And let me tell you, she had an air about her that sucked you in and you couldn’t help but smile because she was a ray of sunshine.
Behind sunshine was dark clouds in the shape of someone who stepped off a Pinterest fashion board. White skinny jeans ripped in just the right places. Loose, flowing top. Sexy heels. Ombre Barbie hair. Very street chic.
Very opposite of sunshine.
Dark cloud took one look at sunshine, turned her neon pink lips into a sneer and audibly uttered an “ew’.
Let me repeat that.
Picture perfect, thin chick, who couldn’t help posing seductively against a wall while staring at herself in the mirror sneered and loudly shamed a woman who was heavy, curvy and proud.
My friend and I watched as this happened.
We were beyond disgusted. And, because I don’t want to sound as shaming as she was, I will refrain from throwing around negative words.
I’m hoping Sunshine didn’t notice Dark Clouds trying to rain on her.
It was bad enough that we noticed.
We also noticed Dark Cloud sitting around a table, unengaged with her friends while texting on her phone.
Sunshine, on the other hand, was dancing and laughing with her friends, her phone nowhere to be seen.
It was a little observation that spoke volumes about character.
So, to the fat-shaming girl from the bathroom,
You might not approve of how the other woman looked.
You might feel intimidated by the fact that, whether or not she felt it inside, she wore confidence to match the flower in her hair.
You might think everything about you was her extreme opposite.
Well guess what?
You couldn’t be more correct.
You could learn something from those people you obviously make a habit of blatantly frowning upon.
Another fat girl from the bathroom
I hope you don’t mind that I’m calling you that. I know nothing about you but that’s what you were to me.
Just know, you make dark clouds part with your glow.
Always stay bright and shiny.
The tequila drinking blogger you probably didn’t even notice observing you
You think you have a right to judge?
You have no right to look at someone and make a judgment call based on the size of their body.
Shame on those who think they have so much more than others.
Feelings have no color.
Feelings have no shape.
They can get destroyed and take the owner down with them.
For the love of humanity…
get over yourselves.
Stop hurting other people.
It just makes you look..
