Fat is the new exotic

"Are you sephardic, Ayelet? You look... exotic." asked the Brooklyn Lawyuh (B.L.), helping me into his car. He sounded appreciative.

"Polish-German," I said, flattered.

I actually had a nice time last night. B.L. sounds like a typical Brooklyn guy, both in his accent and the topics of conversation that arose -- I didn't really need to hear that he KNEW he was 40 when he found himself ordering compote instead of chocolate mousse for dessert last Pesach. But he's a nice guy, smart, interesting, sensitive, reasonably attractive. He didn't care that I hadn't made time to get a manicure. I'll go out with him again if he asks me.
