Thanksgiving Day.
And I can’t get off
the couch.
(grunts and groans)
Thanksgiving Day.
What has made me
such a slouch?
“I give up!”
Fourteen servings
later can you say,
“Ouch!”
(moans!!!!)
Turkey and gravy.
Pumpkin pie.
Mashed potatoes,
don’t ask me why.
Too much stuffin’
from the oven.
I was happy…. ‘til
now.
I don’t care if I never see
food again.
“Could you please pass
me that bottle of antacid?
Thanks!”
Thanksgiving Day.
I could use some selfcontrol.
“I can do this! I can
do this!”
“I…I can’t do this….”
Thanksgiving Day.
I can’t walk, so now
I’ll roll.
(rolling sound)
I can’t bend my body
‘cause I’m too full.
“Uh, oh!”
Turkey and gravy.
Pumpkin pie.
Mashed potatoes, don’t
ask me why.
Too much stuffin’ from
the oven.
I was happy…. ‘til now.
I don’t care if I never
see food again.
“Except for maybe
Friday night pizza.
That’s really good.”
I don’t care if I never
see food again.
“Of course, you can’t
go through life without
Mom’s meatloaf. That’s
a special case…”
I don’t care if I never see
food again.
“Oh, who am I kidding!
I’ll be back in the kitchen
after the pain subsides!
Dibs on the recliner!”
Yeah!!!!!!
