Ahhhh Thanksgiving!


I love Thanksgiving. The talk of all the food we will be baking this week and then consuming in one very big meal, on one very festive day, is causing me to gain weight at just the thought! I seriously need to diet just to prepare for the over consumption! It wasn't until recently that I would actually eat Turkey after many years on hiatus. The rest of the food wasn't safe from my trap though! But that story is for another day. . . maybe tomorrow! So for your Pre-Thanksgiving pleasure, I bring you the obvious signs that you OVERDID it on Thanksgiving.

* You spilled more food on you than the local soup kitchen dispenses.

* Paramedics bring in the Jaws of Life to pry you out of the EZ-Boy.

* Your after dinner moans are loud enough to signal Dr. Kevorkian.

* The "Gravy Boat" your wife set out was a real 14' boat!The potatoes you used set off another famine in Ireland.

* You get grass stains on your butt after a walk, but never sat down.

* Your "Big Elvis Super-Belt" won't even go around your waist.

* You receive a Sumo Wrestler application in your e-mail.

* You set off 3 earthquake seismographs on your morning jog Friday.

* Pricking your finger for cholesterol screening only yielded gravy.

* You have 5 TV sets side-by-side to catch all the football games.

* A guest quotes a Biblical passage from "The Feeding of the 5000."

* That rash on your stomach turns out to be steering wheel burn.

* Your spouse wears a life jacket at night in your water bed.

* Representatives from the Butterball Hall of Fame called twice.

* You consider gluttony as your patriotic duty.

* It looks like the left-overs are going last until Christmas

I can't wait for Thanksgiving! All of that stuff happens to me already anyway...whatev.
Oh, PS...I love egg nog. That in itself is a recipe for guaranteed fatness for life. I just introduced Avery to it to and she likes it...what a bad habit to start. I just can't buy it!
