I had a family day like I always do every Sunday. Each of us take turns cooking (my mother, my two sisters, my sisters friend, my niece, my daughter-in-law, and myself.) Well It was not my turn to cook, nor was it one of my sister who have each had lap band surgery for weight loss. Well the menu was not the best I have ever had, but I am not one to complain. So I quietly ate a few bites of each item on my plate. I then said I felt really full. And you know what, I really was! But the cook commented about the amount I had eaten. Even though I felt it in poor taste, I politely said that I was on a diet and had to watch how much I eat. Unfortunately my two sisters (who by the way were having issues with their lapbands due to the dryness of the chicken) saw through my excuse and laughed behind their hands. Both sisters immediately had a stoppage and showed such grief on their faces I think they really did have an issue, or was it because of the humor they found in my excuse? I may never know. But I politely took both of my sisters plates as well as my own into the kitchen. Only to return to the room to see my sisters having a difficult time keeping a straight face. Later when I had the chance to speak privately with my sisters, I found it was truly do to the excuse I had made as well as how well each of them played their "stoppage" role! We couldn't stop laughing!
Moral: Have fun with your diet. You may not know when you must use it in defense!
