Twas The Day After Christmas

By http://zoolatry.blogspot.co.uk/

Twas The Day After Christmas.


T'was the day after Christmas and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste.
All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).

I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

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 winter disguised as a man!"

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.

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.

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 holidays to all and to all a good diet!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day and Happy Boxing Day to all.

    Plans to diet gone to pot?
    Worry not
    Just visit the sales that are on in town
    and buy yourself a huge dressing gown!

  27. FaRADaY: *waves paws frantically* NO! nononooooo.... "DIET" is just "DIE" with a T!

    We think that's a nasty 4 letter word over here. Just meowing (expecially as the humans left us for 3 days and allowed us to blissfully free feed all we wanted to stuff in our fuzzy little faces. BLISS.)
