Have You Seen the Muffin Top?
[At the Ice Cream Shop…]
“What a long night that was,” yawned Bright Eyes.
“At least we truly beat them,” said Sweetheart.
“Yeah, it would’ve been a whole lot worse if we lost and had a long night,” said Melody.
“They didn’t really stand a chance against us,” said Patch. *Ace passes by on his bike*
“Hey Melody, nice muffin top,” said Ace.
“Huh?”said Melody confused. Did you guys understand what Ace said?
“Nope,” said Starlight.
“Me neither,” said Bon Bon. *Lancer passes by*
“What’s up, Bright Eyes, nice love handles,” said Lancer.
“What’s he talking about?” asked Bright Eyes.
“Sounds like these are phrases we’ve never heard before, but I guess they have,” said Starlight.
“I’ll try checking this out,” said Bright Eyes. Uh-oh, the internet’s down. We’ll have to wait until it’s back up.
“Who knows who they’ll talk about or what phrase they’ll say next,” said Starlight.
“I don’t even want to know,” said Clover. It doesn’t sound good. *Teddy arrives*
“Teddy, you wouldn’t truly know what Ace and Lancer meant about the muffin top and love handles would you?” asked Sweetheart.
“Uh, no idea, Sweetheart,” said Teddy. I’m not even part of what they’re doing. I don’t even know what they’re doing.
“Could you truly ask them the next time you see them then?” asked Sweetheart.
“I’ll see what I can do,” said Teddy. *he walks away*
“Can we really trust Teddy?” asked Melody. We’ve seen what he can do to us.
“He does truly like us for being fat so isn’t that enough to trust him a little bit?” asked Sweetheart. Besides, he didn’t do anything to us last year and hasn’t done bad things this year either.
“I suppose that’s true,” said Melody.
“I don’t know,” said Starlight. How do we know he’s not just planning something for us later?
“Now that I think about it, I think even if he did, it wouldn’t do much, unless it was something to scare us,” said Melody. I suppose I can trust him……for now.
“Hey, I got the internet back up,” announced Bright Eyes.
“Great, what’s a muffin top, then?” asked Starlight.
“Dictionaries Online says it’s where the fat meets or goes over the waistband of clothing, like what we all have right now,” explained Bright Eyes. It’s like an actual muffin, which is where the phrase came from.
“What about love handles?” asked Bon Bon.
“According to Dictionaries Online, love handles are the layers of fat around the midsection and are most visible on the sides around our hips,” explained Bright Eyes.
“So that’s truly what Ace and Lancer were commenting about earlier,” said Sweetheart. I suppose it’s not a bad thing though. It’s not like they’re making fun of us for being fat or anything.
“It is a strange set of phrases but I guess as long as it’s not used too much, I can be okay with them,” said Melody.
“I’m surprised Teddy didn’t say anything about you, Sweetheart,” said Starlight. After all, he is your girlfriend, isn’t he?
“Well…..yeah but maybe he’s waiting until I get home to say something,” said Sweetheart. Teddy is more of a sensitive pony.
“When he’s not bullying,” added Melody.
“I can’t see him being much a bully anymore as long as we stay fat,” said Bright Eyes. *Ace, Teddy, and Lancer arrive on their bikes*
“Hey, sorry about all that,” said Ace.
“Yeah, it was more of a compliment rather than an insult,” added Lancer.
“Just don’t over use the words,” said Bright Eyes.
“Deal,” replied Ace and Lancer together.
“I know I didn’t say anything to Sweetheart but her weight makes her more beautiful,” thought Teddy.
