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?
