11. If I come in from the rain and somebody says, "You're wet"...

...rather than "You have rain on you", the first way of saying it doesn't define my very person as being intrinsically damp. It doesn't mean wetness defines me, it doesn't mean becoming dry is an overwhelming challenge.

To me the awkward phrasing of "have fat" backfires against any intended effect.
