    -You don't sweat much for a fat lass.

    -I bet you were really fit when you were younger.

    -That's a really interesting opinion.

    -I think it's great how you don't let modern trends affect your fashion choices

    Lol Damn you BB, I was actually on the receiving of one similar to this at a party recently by a 19 year old girl, & was scratching my head whether it was a compliment or not... now I know
