Hiding in plain site can be fun!

I attended an annual meeting of researchers in my field (anesthesiology).  I hadn’t been in a few years.  While I’d seen many of the people there during and since my weight loss, others hadn’t seen me.  There aren’t too many African Americans in the organization, so I stand out some.

People would look at my name tag and then say, “Oh, shit!  Is that you, John?”  And I’d answer, “yes, and I said hello to you earlier, but you didn’t recognize me!”

Feels great.  In the long run, feels better than ice cream tastes good.
