Big Girl!

When, speaking to friends, I refer to a Big Girl, this is meant as a euphemism for obesity in varying degrees. The Big Girl could be a grown woman of sixty years old! This euphemism applies equally to portly men. Manuel Uribe is a very Big Boy, for instance, and to describe him as being portly would be excessively polite, not to say inaccurate.

Now we have a truly big girl. The world's tallest teenager, standing six feet eleven tall. Marvadene Anderson is sixteen years old.

Could she grow any more?
