Two Simple Words….

Back in the 70’s, Steve Martin made us all laugh with his standup comedy. One of his routines told of how to “excuse” yourself from anything. “Steve.. how can I be a millionaire.. and never pay taxes?” First.. get a million dollars. Now.. you say, “Steve.. what do I say to the tax man when he comes to my door and says, ‘You.. have never paid taxes’?” Two simple words. Two simple words in the English language: “I forgot!”

Although my experience today was not about excusing myself, the skit did come to mind about mid morning.

While walking the halls doing rounds, my stomach rumbled. A few rooms/rounds later, it rumbled and had some crampy “hunger pangs.”  “Hmm,” I thought. “Why am I so hungry so early?”

Two simple words……I forgot! (to eat breakfast, that is…..). Now, it has always been a joke between skinny DH and er….oversized….me. I always say that the difference between a skinny person and a fat person is this:  on Tuesday morning the skinny person gets up and says….”Did I eat anything on Monday?” and the fat person gets up on Tuesday morning, and while making breakfast, plans what she will eat for lunch and dinner later that day.

So, needless to say (and unfortunately) forgetting to eat is not routine for me.

And, needless to say, lunch break came a bit early.

And, needless to say, if I could bottle it, I’d be rich….
