I Know Your Secret

A coworker returned to work after recovering from a leg injury and we talked in the mail room. She lamented not being able to walk to the lab for baked goods so I offered to bring her down a sample tray. She was excited about this and we started talking.

Her: I’ve been away for a few weeks, it looks like you’ve lost weight.
Me: I lose about 1.75 lbs a week.
Her: But you’ve lost more than that overall.
Me: About 165 from my peak.
Her: Interesting, where did you have your surgery done?
Me: Surgery?
Her: Bariatric surgery.
Me: None.
Her: Oh.

I’ll take that as a compliment.
