When I reach eight and a half stone:
I will be able to shop in Topshop. If only I could t in a size
10 or an 8, just walk in a shop and not even have to try it
on because let’s face it I will be straight up and down, then everything would slot neatly into place, completing the easiest jigsaw puzzle in the world: all straight edges
I will be able to go swimming and not displace all the water and create a tsunami
I will t in changing rooms, without banging my elbows or exposing the moon of my arse through the curtain when I bend over
I will be able to t behind the narrow benches at Ronnie Scott’s to listen to jazz instead of being offered a chair, at the end.
I will be promoted and not have my desk moved to inside the stationery cupboard
