We were in the middle of talking about Julien's day and he was telling me about a conversation involving history and harvesting food - it went like this:
Julien: Did you know that fat people used to be a "symbol" of wealth.

Julien: (Laughing) Wow, I bet people must think we're really rich.
Me: ...... speechless .......
