Overeating




Radio Question of the Day:

According to a popular men's magazine, the average man will do this only six times this year... What is it?

*************************

At my house we seem to use any and every "holiday" as an excuse to overeat. Take Father's Day for example. We overate. We also overfed everyone else who would let us. That TLP. Food pusher.

*************************

Answer to the Radio Question of the Day:

Go to the movies. My husband Niks is far above average.

how odd, and my guess was 'put down the toilet seat'

I'm way below average. We just wait for the DVD to come out, then purchase it and watch it 100 times.

Of course, we do dim the lights and have popcorn the first time, so at least we're trying.

I love to overeat on holidays. Of course, it doesnt have to be a holiday if its the right kind of food. And i like food. There are very few kinds i dont like...;) I am surprised i am not as big as a house. Must be all the running i do chasing a 2-yr old around. ;)

Hi Lucy, that was short and sweet today, still feelin' a bit overstuffed?

I'm far below average in the movie department. I see maybe one or two a year.

Our Father's Day menu was Farmer's Market fresh salad, baked potato, teriyaki maridnade grilled fillet and a couple (!) nice bottles of NW wine. Good times! =-)

I think Mr Logo and I are probably a little below that average. We'll make up for it when it doesn't entail paying a babysitter.
Till then will you and Niks keep picking up our slack?

I am way less than average. For example, the number of times I went to the movies this year is zero. The number for last year was: zero. And for the year before that? Uh huh, zero.

I like it when you supply the menu. You know, like what was actually eaten on Father's Day. Details. I need a vicarious TLP food-pushing experience. xoxo

Love the cartoon! I'm way below average in movie watching too. I seldom go.

Kyahgirl said...

TLP, I had a good chuckle at some of your commenters today. Guys just can't get no respect!

You need one of them "all religions all nations" holiday calendars.

Oh yes The Overeating Syndrome... I understand it all to well, I'm sorry to say. A friend brought me a HUGE Chocolate Bar from Trader Joe's...yesterday. No, it's not gone, but I have eaten much more of it than I should...Oh my hips!
Did you have a good time on Fathers Day, my dear? I hope so...that's the thing. Eating is such a big part of socializing...What is one supposed to do?
