Smorgasbord Laughter lines – Something to go with the leftovers….Funnies and a Poem…

For those of you who don’t celebrate Boxing Day, St. Stephen’s day, you may still be on a festive break, stuffed with food and chocolate and ready to get some exercise to work it all off. Laughter uses all the muscles in the face and if you get your upper body shaking with laughter, and the feel good chemicals being released in your brain, you are in good shape…. to eat more leftovers later.

 

Now for ditty from me in celebration of the food unconsumed yesterday…..

The Leftovers by Sally Cronin

I opened the fridge this morning
To check on the state of the world,
I hoped to see that the turkey,
Was not all shrivelled and curled.

It peaked from its packet of foil,
Still juicy and raring to go
I shredded it into some sauce
With some shrooms and onions for show.

I took the spuds, carrots and peas
And slathered with butter and oil.
The brandy was down to the dregs,
I added and brought to the boil.

But what to do with the trifle
Still lush with custard and berry
Guess I shall just have to eat it
Topped with a schooner of sherry.

So if I sound a bit pickled
The leftovers carry the blame.
Since to throw good food in the bin
Would be a dire waste and a shame.

My waist has expanded to fit
All the goodies that have been served
But thankfully my beloved,
Likes his women rounded and curved!

Thanks for dropping in today and enjoy the rest of the holidays…..Sally

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
