Midsummer Ex Comedy

I was biking downtown this afternoon and spotted an ex-boyfriend.  My actual interior dialogue went something like:  'Oh shit... Was that him with his new girlfriend? Whatever. She's really tall. She probably has man hands and a huge vagina.'

I don't know if that's the kind of 'positive self-talk' my therapist was referring to, but I rode away smiling to myself. That counts for something, right? It makes me wonder though, if inside every insult comic is just a really really insecure person.

I first heard of "huge vaginas" from a great scene from a great show, "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Wouldn't you love your friends to trash-talk your ex straight to their face like this?

Larry David is amazing.  I assume you remember Seinfeld's Man Hands?

this made me laugh out loud, and totally reminded me of a really funny nora ephron novel, where the main character finds out her husband is having an affair. she describes the other woman as "a fairly tall person with a neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb and you should see her legs, never mind her feet, which are sort of splayed"
