Me: “What are you reading Fat Chick?”

FC: “I’m looking for some good recipes. Gotta lose a few pounds.”

Me: “Really? That’s great! Finding anything interesting?”

FC: “Well, my choices have been narrowed because I refuse to be a cannibal.”

Me: “A cannibal? What the heck are you talking about?”

FC: “Think about it. I’m a chicken. What do you eat a lot of when you’re on a diet, you murderer? I refuse to eat chicken or eggs. That means I’m targeting fish this week. They’re going DOWN!”

Me: “Oh, I see. I never really thought about it that way, since you’re ceramic and all.”

FC: “You just have to keep throwing that in my beak, don’t you? It’s not my fault I’m ceramic. Why don’t you try being a little more accepting and not look down on those of us who wear paint and a fired on glaze. It’s not my fault I was made in a factory in China or somewhere!”

Me: “My goodness, you’re a little testy, Chick! I meant no harm. I perfectly understand where you’re coming from about not eating chicken or eggs. What about turkey?”

FC: “I think anything that has feathers and lays eggs is off limits. It would be like chewing on a family member, if you know what I mean.”

Me: “I certainly do. Maybe I’ll get you to share some recipes with me. If I set a small goal and see what happens, maybe it will be a good kick-start. You can be my inspiration! How will you measure your success?”

FC: “When you stop talking about being fat and dieting, then your alter ego can quit calling herself Fat Chick and stop trying to inspire you. That’s my measure of success. So, I guess it’s up to you!”

Me: “That was really sneaky Fat Chick. This whole thing was cooked up to force me to diet again, wasn’t it? That’s not fair! Alter egos should have SOME morals!”

FC: “Hey, quit complaining. I’m YOUR alter ego. In case you hadn’t noticed, you’re the one typing this conversation. It exists in your head, remember? I’m just a ceramic chicken sitting on your table. You act like I can actually think and talk or something. Geez, you’re losing it woman! Get a grip!”

Me: “I guess you’re right. Okay, we’ll focus on fish and light foods this week. But, we’re having chicken for dinner tonight.”

FC: “CANNIBAL!!!!!!”
