The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted

This is a collection of brief essays in the life of a modern, overweight woman. Well, food only really makes a prominent appearance in the first one. It is pretty much a book about nothing. I suppose some middle age women might find a lot of it interesting. For the rest of us? Uh, not so much.

We get a lot of stories of overweight women reminiscing over their past relationships. They acknowledge that they treated men like dirt and it the end, the one they really wanted was the one that they dumped.

You do get some good Chicago and midwestern settings. At times you actually feel a little sympathetic towards the people. They have finally realized that they have suffered because of their bad decisions. They fell victim to the American culture that encourages you to get benefits without hard work, and now they are paying for it.
