TESS: Have you put on weight, Ann? You look fuller in the face.
ANN: I really don't care. I've given up dieting. You know, Tess. whenever I manage to lose a few pounds they just creep back on again after a few weeks, and then I feel I've tortured myself for nothing. Anyway, I'm not exactly obese, am I?
