Week 2 – Big Women: Day 7 – Overview

Leniently phrased, this was an extended, corpulent week.  It took me a while to wrap up this week’s chapter but fortunately, we tackled some meaty neologisms.  Initially, we enjoyed a painterly reference to a rubensian ecdysiast, then, savored a tidbit about a hopelessly hopeful Sheila’s big sacrifice using a Yiddish delicacy.  We watched with anticipation as Mark cherry-picked a craigslist hunk and observed with trepidation as roly-poly Venus succumbed to her flab fetish. We saw rotund Chuck reciprocate with equal politeness to his tormenting classmates.  Lastly, we heard about Ellen’s positive response to a fantastical cosplay of two homosexual butterballs.
