Odd Reactions

A couple of weeks ago, an occasional walkin client said he nearly didn't recognize me because I had lost so much weight. (Then he spent the next five minutes getting all apologetic because he thought he'd offended me, oops.). Today, getting my new driver's license, the clerk said I had to take a new picture because I had lost so much weight.

Now, I've lost what I would describe as "some" weight, but certainly not sufficient to call for any superlatives to be attached to it. Not enough that anyone I actually know (including myself) can see it. But total strangers? It's apparently quite obvious to them.

Weird.
