Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

Several years back I worked with a woman who was a little overweight, but had a wonderful sense of humor on the issue (and all other things).  She would tell all the children that she was a princess which I always assumed was at least a little tongue-in-cheek due to her weight.  She would wear a little tiara in the classroom, and regularly remind the children she was a princess.  The kids all loved the bit.

One day a little kindergartner approached her and asked, "Miss Cousins, why do you call yourself a princess?"

"Because I'm the most beautiful teacher in the school." said Miss Cousins confidently.

The little one paused with amazement.  "Wooow! And you have two chins!"

They say the darndest things.  :)
