Hello Dear Readers! I love Thanksgiving! It’s one of my favorite holidays. Every year I cook for my family and every year I look forward to it with great pleasure. Maybe a little too much pleasure. That’s why I’ve come up with this list of warning signs on how to tell if you are going to overdo Thanksgiving.
How to Tell if You’re Going to Overdo Thanksgiving
You’ve replaced the phrase “I love you” with the phrase “Olive you”.
You just got back from Potato Mashing Immersion Camp.
You’ve instructed your surgeon to break ground on that new stomach addition.
In preparation for the big feast, you’ve managed to diet down to a size bite.
Even if you were to carry out pi to a million decimals, all forms of pi will be polished off by Friday.
You’ve taken to sleeping on a pillow of mini marshmallows.
Thanks to you and your voluminous Yam Stockpile the earth will be taking 6 days longer to orbit the sun.
You made an appointment with your dentist to get your teeth sharpened.
Your new gravy boat sleeps six.
Your husband Tom is slightly worried about you because his name is Bill.
You’ve been preheating your oven since the 4th of July.
You refuse to read, watch or listen to anything that isn’t about Jello.
And the most obvious way to tell if you’re going to overdo Thanksgiving:
Your appendix has been officially called back into active duty for the stomach reserves.
Until next time . . . Olive you

Immersion in Mashed Potato camp is a lot more fun.
If you’re into that sort of thing, I mean.
Happiest of Thanksgivings, Linda!
I’m pretty sure mashed potatoes are on heaven’s menu. Hope you had a good TG EG!
Ha ha! And Happiest of Thanksgivings to you too El Guapo! 😀
Have a great Thanksgiving, Linda. This was great reading. I normally completely overdo it, but this year, I am purposely trying not to…which means that I might succeed in only overdoing it “a little bit.” Ha!! 😉
Haha! I hear you loud and clear. But I’m happy to report I didn’t overdo it this year, unless you count eating way way too much! ;D
I can’t stop laughing out loud at the captions you have for your pictures!!! I especially love the first picture of the model with the fal leaves hood. I can say that I look forward to your huge centerpeice of pink Jello that completes every Thanksgiving we’ve ever had.
Ha ha! I’ll have to get a pink jello hat for me to wear especially for TG. Or at the very least get us all t-shirts with a big bowl of pink jello on them! 😀
Thanks Slllyliss – so glad you liked it! 😀
Hahaha – Olive you too 🙂
Ha ha! Olive you too Dianne! 😀
Love this post! On Thanksgiving, I realized I had not one can, but six cans of yams. I may need an intervention next year! 🙂
Hahaha! You sound just like me. I have four large cans of pumpkin in my pantry at the moment. Well at least if there’s a disaster you ad I will be prepared. Sure we’ll eventually OD on vitamin A but at least we won’t go hungry!! 😀
Well, my new gravy boat sleeps Al Gore– or 15 standard obese people… : P
The architect lookin’ to fit in an extra bowl of Mashed P. was a screamer. I yam (candied, of course) still laughing!! : )
Ahahahaha! Mr. Macgiggles! You crack me up more than Al Gore cracks up the gravy boat!! Standard obese people. Wiping tears! (Al wiping tears too — tears of gravy of course!!) 😀
