One Month After Christmas Food Woes (humor)

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I received this by e mail today! Hope it makes you emoticon

Twas the month after Christmas,
And all through the house,
Nothing would fit me,
Not even a blouse.

emoticon emoticon emoticon
The cookies I'd nibbled,
The chocolate I'd taste
At the holiday parties
Had gone to my waist.
emoticon
When I got on the scales
There arose such a number!
When I walked to the store
(less a walk than a lumber),
emoticon
I'd remember the marvellous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The cake and the squares, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
emoticon
As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt...
I said to myself, as I only can,
"You can't spend a Summer, disguised as a man!"
emoticon
So, away with the last of the sour cream dip.
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip.
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
emoticon
I won't have a cookie, not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie.
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
emoticon
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore...
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all, and to all a good diet.
