What can YOU say in six sentences?
I am watching a video about an 804-pound man who lost 330 pounds in one year and is able to go outdoors for the first time in a decade.
The camera shows a face devoid of bones, a voice light as a girl's, no facial hair, a human neutered by fat. His legs are pink rolls unrecognizable as distinct calves or thighs containing femurs, tibias or fibulas, and the flesh toward his ankles is a bruised blue color.
He walks slowly down the sidewalk and tells the tv world, "I could not have done it without my wonderful trainer or my loving wife," while both women hover, smiling anxiously.
The "before" footage shows him splayed across a bed, oxygen tubes to his nose, unable to wash, dress or toilet himself, beached on a posturpedic shore.
And yet, the viewer notices, there is a wife who cared for him in his inexplicable hugeness for all those years, and isn't love a mystery shrouded in a riddle?
