Like a Bowl Full of Jelly

This is what happens at my house on Christmas.I prepare an obscene amount of food so that I don't have to cook for, like, a week. And this doesn't even include the pies. Or the Godiva chocolates and pumpkin bread that we received as gifts. Or the other box of chocolates or the baklava Jess and I made.

So then what happens is I have a dream that I sit down at a stool at a counter in some store and the clerk comes over and yells at me to get off of it because I'm so large he thinks I'm going to break it. And then I wake up from the dream and get out of bed only to hop on the scale and see that I have gained four pounds. Yeah, that was fun.

Aw you'll be alright. If I can ward off the freshman fifteen you can lose holiday crap easy.

Actually, a couple of days of normal eating did the trick. But those Godiva chocolates are still calling . . .

Take heart. Fat women have nice personalities and are warm to sleep next to. Bill

bill - Since Lois has a very nice figure, I'm going to say you're just guessing at that last part.

I know what you mean. We haven't had a really big meal, but the desserts are about to kill me! I guess after tonight I will start cutting down again...or walking away from the dessert table anyway.

di - To make matters worse, we are leaving for vacation tomorrow, and you always gain weight on vacation! Maybe I can get in a lot of hiking to balance out the eating.

You never knew Lois when she was 297 lbs. Of course when you think about it neither did I. A man I know is extremely heavy, and is very happy about it. He claims when he sinks into a bed, the women have no choice but to roll right into his arms. - Bill

Went dashing through their plays,
To leave them in a daze
Remembering former days!!![Did you go to the game?]--Bill

jeff - I'm having a great time - at Grand Canyon right now and have taken several hundred pictures. For some reason, this computer isn't letting me download them, or they'd be on the blog already (well, not ALL of them!).

bill - No, we were at a hotel in Casa Grande in the bar and grille and the game was on the big screen. Everyone in there except for us was rooting for OU. We, of course, are OSU, which is infinitely better.
