Open link opens Christmas week

I'm joining Kerry and all other members and contributors at the online writers' group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads for Open Link Monday this Christmas week. As usual, if I'm not given a word list, a photo, or a topic as a prompt, I set my brain on idle and see what comes. Today, I think my tummy contributed more than my brain did.



we all know
when the moon hits your eye
like a big pizza pie, that’s amorĂ©
but...
when the pie hits your eye
and you tremble and sigh
then it’s Christmas...
 
mince pie,
pumpkin pie,
apple pie,
custard pie and more,
you have to try
each one you eye
but still fit through the door.

and then you swear
it’s diet pie
or else just pi
from January onward:
nothing fits
and you have fits,
then call it quits,
and give up on
your diet.

Girl, I just made my first gluten free pie crust. It whipped me all over my kitchen, and it probably won't even be fit to eat!

As I was driving today, I happened to look down and saw a (HORRORS!) a midriff roll bigger than usual. But then I decided I'd worry about it after Christmas! lol

Chuckles! Lots to eat, charming to those lean ones but bane of the plumbs. Takes triple the efforts to shed off in the new year, that's right! Merry Christmas, Kay!

My nurse practitioner just warned me about staying away from too many sweets and calories AND to keep up my exercise. Sigh...

LOL Kay! So far, apple pie, pumpkin pie, chocolate mousse pie, probably 7 kinds of ice cream, a torte, chocolate, and I need about a gallon of insulin to offset the sugar rush. Merry Christmas! ~

Oh dear! That sounds all too accurate! I hope you had a Merry Christmas Kay! And don't forget to have a scoop of ice cream with that pie!
