The excuses people give

Every once in a while, another person finds out that I had an ED. The most common reaction I get when I tell them is disbelief. The most common one, of course, is "but I thought you were too smart for that."

I've also heard,
"But you're a writer"
"But you said you were an opera singer."
"But you were thin in the first place"
(and perhaps my favourite, becuase I suppose we're a special breed): "But you're a redhead!"

What are the weirdest things that people say if they find out that you have (or had) an ED? What are your favourite responses?

(hmm maybe the responses to this can cheer people up a bit since it's cold and the middle of november)
