I had a really bad hair-do for 2 years as a kid. It was an afro when afros were NOT in style. I was teased daily, but instead of crying or feeling all hurt inside, I laughed along with my bastard peers. But I gotta admit, some of their wise cracks were indeed kinda witty. The more I laughed with them, the less wise cracks I got – until the teasing finally stopped altogether.
But what if you’re Anna Godfey? And what if those ugly remarks are fat jokes? If you check out Anna’s Facebook page, it’s obvious she’s a drinking party girl (whateva, her choice). As the story goes, some guy called her “fat” while she was out partying. Anna lashed out and bit off part of the guy’s ear. She was arrested for suspicion of felony assault. And he needs plastic surgery (ear chunk never found).
From Anna’s Facebook Page
“ATTENTION: I woke up this morning to a million friend requests, if I don’t know u don’t try n be my friend just bc u think its cool I f*cked up 3 dudes the other night it was a fight, same as all the other fights I’ve been in over the years, I don’t like all this ‘fame’ n how the news ran his story which was not truthful, so stop jockin my facebook page people! I like my close knit circle of friends the way it is.”
Call me crazy, but despite Anna’s actions (please don’t chew on your enemies), I gotta appreciate her sassy-ness. Just a little bit?
Anna is definitely a bad-ass. Even though she was probably drunk when the assault took place, I’m not so sure she ever curls into an emotional wet noodle when people judge her body image.
I’m not encouraging you to go drunk-cannibal like Anna, just be confident in yourself (but in a legal kind of way that won’t get you arrested). Like I did when I had that frightful afro.
