Day 10: Cinnamon Soft Pretzels

Cinnamon Soft Pretzels

I found this poem online-the author is unknown, but whoever wrote it, bravo!!!!


Twas the Month After Christmas 
Twas the month 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.
All 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!

Every time I make a goodie now, I'm going to be thinking of this poem!!!!

The song of the day is One Toy Soldier, by Enya.

Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is BORN!!!!!
