Thanksgiving Report

The Boy gained 2.5 lbs eating just the dinner. We haven't touched the desserts yet. The boy likes to weigh himself before and after the meal, just to see how much he can pack away in one sitting. Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday by far, and there isn't a food on the table he won't eat. He wolfs down really huge amounts of both turkey and sweet potatos. He has seconds, sometimes even thirds. Usually, in the middle of any big meal he'll get up, go into the kitchen, belch really loudly, and then come back with renewed interest after clearing more space in his stomach. Lovely.

Update: After 3 slices of pie he gained another 1.5 lbs, making his all time weight gain in one meal, a total of 4 lbs in all. He's so proud. Let me just mention that his total weight tonight brought him up to a whopping 110 lbs at 5'5". Kid can eat anything and remain skinny. I hate him.

Update #2: He's eating MORE. He's plowing through sweet potatos right now. How can one person fit in so much food?

Worthless Pet jumped up on the empty chair at the table, looking like a disembodied head floating in space. I caved and gave him some turkey in a small bowl, which he too wolfed down. He couldn't believe his good luck, as usually he's shooed away from the table. Heck, it's a holiday for him, too.

The Girl complained bitterly about how starving she was for hours before the big meal, and then picked at her food. She only ate turkey, sweet potatos, and cranberry sauce. She won't touch stuffing and didn't want a green veggie.

I ate everything on my plate and then some. I'm tired but happy and later we'll eat the pies and drink tea. Another delicious meal, another stress free holiday, and another peaceful evening. Holidays are so much better without relatives around.

happy thanksgiving--from Michelles. I see you don't like Mr. Bush--did you know he's taking us back to the metric system--see my blog post from this morning...

I think that was sarcastic. I highly doubt Bush would care about the metric system. He's more worried about maintaining his reputation after half of his royal court is under indictment or suspicion.

The Boy sounds like me. I am despised by more people because of my rail thinness and voracious appetite than I am for my nastiness with a pen.

Guess where I've just been...
