Behind the Scenes

E-mail to Mom re: abs

Her response:

      i envy how thin you are, i wouldn’t worry about your weight at all. you’d look even stranger with a six pack, i think.

      however, what’s up with that crease? is that always there…?

      your mom seems nonplussed by you sending her shirtless pics, unless this is all a fraud, which it probably is, since i’m always the last to get the joke. i like how kind she was, though.

      still “hate” (not really) you for that “my therapist cries for me” thing, but your tao comic was good & i’m drinking again.

      keep on trucking

      the crease is naturally formed by merging flesh, though made more acute by a scar from surgery re: pyloric valve when i was 12 days old; this is not a fraud, despite my tendency to satirize emails, it’s truly real; yah the therapist thing was over the top and i regret writing that way about it
