I am not saying I am gaining weight, but the signs might be there.
When we were at my mom’s house, we enjoyed sitting on her porch swing a lot. At some point during the visit, and while sitting on the swing, the whole rafter broke loose and brought us crashing down.
Unfortunately for my self confidence, I was on the side that fell down. (It actually turns out there was only one nail holding all of us and it was obviously not enough.)
