Christmas StuffingDecember 24, 2010
One day to go. Just one day to go before the big day itself. However you celebrate it, food will definitely be involved. Everything you’ve ever wanted to eat, or didn’t realise you wanted, will be consumed in vast quantities over the next couple of days.
A comment by a friend on Facebook reminded me of this. He was talking about loosening his belt for Christmas and it led to a great stream of consciousness among our friends. One wag suggested putting our belts to ‘feast’ setting. Well, my belt has been on ‘feast’ setting for at least a year, my friend, and in anticipation of the food I’m soon going to hoover, my belt will be set to ‘you’ve eaten too much, you fat bastard’. Or better still, I won’t wear a belt at all. I said the following to my Facebook friends and I say it again here: take my advice, ladies and gentlemen, because no creature is happy in captivity – let your tummy run free! And while you’re giving your tummy a chance to frolic under your jumper unhindered, give a moment’s thought to those whose Christmas will not be so great this year, for whatever reason.
I really wish the best for you, dear reader. Have a great holiday.
