    enough/have

    How are you.

    I'd like to know the meaning of "enough" in (1) and "have" in "(2)

    Standing near the ice-cream section in a supermarket,
    I noticed a stout women rummaging in the freezer.
    Suddenly she was seized from behind by another woman who said
    "Get out of there! You don't need that. (1)You are heavy enough!"
    As the startled woman straightened up, her attacker realized she was facing a total strangers and stammered,
    "I'm sos sorry. I'm not wearing my glasses. I thought you were my friend."
    After a moment the "victim" replied, "(2)You actually have a friend?"

    Enough means "sufficient" "no more is needed".

    You are old enough to dress your self now.(You do not need to be bolder and the time has come for you to dress yourself)

    You are heavy/fat enough, or too heavy/fat. (You are already too heavy/fat and should not get heavier/fatter.
    "Have" there is the possessive use:

    I have (got) a pen.
    I have (got) a car.
