undressing

today’s life writing microphone goes to Kevin Smith. Smith, an American film director perhaps best known for being thrown off a plane for being “a safety concern” (aka “too fat:) and then for spending the next three days in the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons, has released a memoir, one short excerpt of which is available in today’s Guardian. Have a read; it’s worth the effort.

Here’s a short teaser:

The first time I became body-conscious was when I was nine and went to the water park with my cousin. We were having a blast going down the slide when this dude at the top goes, “Sorry, man, pregnant ladies are not allowed on the slide.” The first five people behind me were like, “Heeheehee!” I went and put my shirt on… for the rest of my life.
