Poem for the day after Christmas

Remorseful poem on when all hope seems lost to shed the pounds gained during a Christmas binge.

Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I’d nibbled, the eggnog I’d taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).

I’d remember the marvelous meals I’d prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared.

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I’d never said, “No thank you, please.”

As I dressed myself in my husband’s old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt.

I said to myself, as I only can:
“You can’t spend a winter disguised as a man!”

So – away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip.

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished,
“Till all the additional ounces have vanished.”

I won’t have a cookie – not even a lick
I’ll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won’t have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I’ll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I’m hungry, I’m lonesome, and life is a bore,
But isn’t that what January is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

Strange Christmas Scene

Why are the three wise men wearing fireman helmets? The answer is in the Bible.

nativity scene

A woman passing through a small Southern town saw a nativity scene showing great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered her though.

The three wise men were wearing firemen’s helmets. Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, the woman left the Christmas scene.

At a quilt shop on the edge of town, she asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets.

The store clerk exploded into a rage, yelling “You stupid Yankees never do read the Bible!”

The visitor assured her that she did, but simply couldn’t recall anything about firemen in the Bible.

The store clerk grabbed her Bible from behind the counter, ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage.

Sticking it in the woman’s face the clerk said, “See, it says right here, ‘The three wise men came from afar.'”
