At five foot eleven, not just the size of my behind- what my sister refers to as a baller caller- qualifies me for "big girl" status. Coming from a family of tall women, my height was hardly an issue for me. When I reached full height in grade seven, I simply started dating older boys. Given my precocious ways, it was bound to happen anyway. My Mom and her sisters, while tall, tend towards slender. Put it this way, in her hay day, mom was propositioned more than once to be a model, but her conservative (read prudish) Jamaican values would never allow it. Though Dad clearly found an appreciation for her, being of Bajun decent, he tended to like his women a little rounder Thus when she was pregnant, he put his month on me, by teasing her about her flat behind. As a child, I showed promise of turning out to be just like mom. Adolescence and childbirth however, unleashed the promise of my plump infancy and the Bajun genes kicked in, rounding me out to give more "cushion of the pushing". Though I kept Mom's hourglass figure, I seemed to have gathered more sand in mine. Lucky for me a combination of factors led to me developing a healthy sense of self and positive self-image. As such, though I would love to get into better shape (quit smoking, eat healthier) , I am ok with me. In fact, I have found there are many positive factors to being a big girl. Moreover, being freed from the pursuit of body beautiful, allowed me to develop other parts of me that I deem more important; A sharp mind, a sound heart, and a character based on integrity. Life has also taught me that packaging can be deceiving. While I tend to gravitate towards tall, lithe (read lanky) men, I have dated across the spectrum of body types. In the end I discovered what matters is not the type, but how you feel in each other's arms. Bottom line . . . can we spoon?

Thanks Toketee I figure if I am going to add to the bedlam of cyber space, the least I can do is to try to keep it coherent if not entertaining ;o)
