How Santa Saved a Fat Man.......
The following was sent to me by a Lapbanded friend last year....I thought I'd share it with you....
T’was the night before Christmas, I’d binged through the house,
I’d just emptied the fridge and I felt like a louse;
My XXXL pants were hung on the chair,
They were getting quite snug, almost too tight to wear.
So I put on my sweats, nestled deep in the blues,
“I will never be thin”, to myself I did muse,
And as deep in depression I dolefully sat,
I accepted the truth: I would always be fat.
When way up on the roof deftly landed two feet,
Landed ever so lightly, the sound so discreet,
That I just barely heard it, but wanted to see
What the source of this sound could potentially be.
Away to the window I stumbled and shuffled
And got such a shock that my shout went unmuffled.
For right there on my roof, standing thin as a stick
And as fit as a fiddle was – that’s right - St. Nick!
Well, I stuttered and stammered – “Santa, you look great,
Please tell me your secret – how’d you lose all that weight?”
With a wink of his eye he extended his hand,
And he said, “Got two words for you, sonny – The Band!”
Kindness Taste Test Update:
I'm confusing everyone! When I go to give someone a candy cane--they tend to stand back a minute to survey the situation before taking it. One woman in line at CVS asked me if I was "collecting for something". Several people refused to take one all together! Now, honestly, if I wasn't being Random Kindess Judi and just being my normal old self, I would have probably made some remark like "what? do you think I'm trying to poison you?" or "can't you just accept that someone is trying to brighten up your day?" Geez! Being that I'm doing the kindess thing sort of "in secret", I don't want to say "listen, I'm just trying to be nice because I'm doing this random acts of kindess thing in December". So, I just have to come up with a good response to everyone's suspicions. As for the lottery tickets--the response has been a little better....one guy I handed it to said "Oh, did I drop that?"
My crusade continues.....
