It's all in how you say it...

I just remembered a second conversation today that could have irked me, but it's all about context.

My mentor/friend Jim and I were chatting via IM.  I mentioned I'd done a little shopping and he asked me if I'd bought something shiny.

I told him that big girls didn't need to wear shiny things because they're unforgiving.

He replied:

"You're not a big just laugh like one."

Now, I don't really know what to make of that, except that I love it.

I do have a big, fat laugh.

Point being, if I like you, you can get away with more.  That's all, really.
