Right out of a sitcom...

Ever see a sitcom where the folks had to eat multiple thanksgiving meals?
I picked Kim up from work and took her out for dinner. We had a lovely meal with sparkling conversation. With our bill paid we head home for an evening in front of the wood stove and letter transcription (stay tuned for for that post). A knock at the door confuses then scares us. We forgot that a dear friend of ours was coming over to bring us dinner. Oh crap. We had to pretend we were starving. I contemplated bringing back the old vomitorium tradition. He starts us off with some Hummos and pita, moving into the main course, Kim totally throws me under the bus with this comment "I had a huge lunch so don't be offended if I don't eat much" I WAS GONNA SAY THAT!
He roasted a turkey and brought over this bread that tastes like stuffing oddly enough called, stuffing bread. I choke it down and beg Kim for one of her belly rubs. She touched me and I almost barfed. I swear I thought it was a good idea...not.

I wonder what's for dessert?

You literally had Mark laughing out loud while you two were talking about this.

Hilarious, my friend. And, good for Kim!!!

Steve said...

Greater love hath no man than he give up his stomach for a friend.

And don't go the vomitorium route. Gets to be a habit.

Plus, they get real suspicious at those "all-you-can-eat" buffets when you're literally eating all day without gaining weight.

The stuffing bread sounds good, for a time when you're not already stuffed.

I cannot, for the life of me, believe that some form of a Karen Carpenter joke hasn't emerged from this! : )

ya mean like

Q: What's the highlight of a Bulimic bachelor party?

A: When you get to see the cake come out of the girl?

Huh? huh? huh???

Steve said...

Ouch. Doug, that hurt. Hadn't heard it before. Shouldn't make me smile.

Guilty as charged.

Doug said...

odd story (as Mark can testify to)

A guy in piano school (named Steve) locked himself in his room for a couple of days when he heard the news about Karen.
Now that I'm a bit older I'll pop on a few Carpenters tunes and am very impressed with the arrangements and harmonies.

Does my sincere complement of their art make up for the bad joke?

doubt it...

Steve said...

I liked their sound - had a few of their albums. And Karen was starting to come back when she put on too much weight too fast. Ah, well.

But keep the jokes coming.
