Hungry, hungry hippo
One thing good about Thanksgiving being behind us is, I get back to my normal eating.
I have gotten used to eating all the time!
This is a true story. On Friday, I went to see "Amahl and the Night Visitors," which, you can read my immortal thoughts on the production here. After the opera, my sister, my nieces Rosie and Millie, my little nephew Georgie, and I went across the street to the Yummy Thai. That is a restaurant name I love! And we drank jasmine tea and had this huge Thai meal. Noodles, rice, the works. Bok choy. That is a vegetable name I love!
Anyway. I get home after that gigantic meal and the first thing I do is open the fridge.
Thinking: What's next for me?
You get into that mindset!
It gets worse. On Saturday I went with my brother George to sign copies of my dad's book at the Historical Society. There were these Hershey's Kisses on the table and what the heck. Normally I would never dig into Hershey's Kisses. I know better! But now there was no stopping me.
It is like when I was with Leonard Pennario and he got me eating sundaes. That was one thing I was thinking about yesterday while I was putting in a marathon book session.
I wondered then as I wonder now...
How do I get back to my normal life?
