EoMEoTE#8 – the Drama Queen edition

Yesterday, when I was sucking in my gut in order to do up my shorts, I decided that something drastic has to be done. I complained to T and he grimaced and nodded as he sucked in his gut in order to do up his shorts. Yes, we’ve decided that we’re going to try to curb ourselves just a fraction.

This seems to lead beautifully into Cook Sister’s theme for this month’s EoMEoTE#8:

“Egad!” she exclaimed as she rifled through her closet in search of the extra large queensize cycling gear. At last the tent-like garments were located and she poured her enormous blubber-like mass into them. As she squeezed the fasteners closed, she gasped, “Is it time for breakfast yet?”
And as luck would have it (or not), it was indeed time for breakfast for the emmense blob that she had become:

  • Hard Boiled Egg
  • Buttered Toast (whole wheat) – it was going to be dry toast – really it was!!
  • Orange Juice
  • Coffee (“no no no, don’t make me drink it black!!”) – I’m afraid there was 10% cream in the cup….

She sighed as she picked up the last toast crumb with her little finger, “it’s just not the same as eggs benedict….”

    For me it was the copious quantities of delicious bread, potatoes and rice that did it. Don’t cut them out, just cut them in half. There are scientists who say the Canada Food Rules have too few vegetables and too many carbohydrates, and that likely the rules will change again, as they did to reduce the size of protein servings.

    I would never cut bread, potatoes and rice out! Especially as my motto is “everything in moderation”. I probably just have to revise my idea of what “moderation” means….

    Oh! Gawd! That could be a story playing itself around my household too.
