It's Not Just A Half Eaten Turkey Sandwich

Updated on January 27, 2014

It Is All That Stands Between Us

The day seemed to move on without me

I was so tired

I barely crawled out of bed before noon

Then again I did go to sleep at 5:55

Hi Mom

Every time the time displays all the same numbers

I think of my mom

Well when I did get up

I ate a bowl of cereal when my wife was eating lunch

Now she wants to eat supper and I am one meal behind

So I am doing everything in my power to eat and then eat again

My wife gets so mad when I don't eat

I get so involved in writing nothing else matters

I will write from my heart and promise to leave nothing out

Some people say I ramble

I like to think I am honored by a world with so many thoughts

In a world where we can think anything

I focus on mostly the positive and then a little negative with a twist

Some people search all their lives for happiness and never find it

I see and feel this pleasure in just one day

A little at a time or sometimes all at once

I have no control

All I know is it is the best feeling I have ever felt

No drugs needed

So as I take my last few bites

Keeping my wife happy as I stuff the turkey in my stomach

Like a Butterball plumped up and ready to be taken

I can't even move

Thank God for milk

That washes it down to stay

In life with so many subjects to think about

The sun shining so bright through the window I had to close the curtain

It will be supper in a half hour and I better walk it off

My wife won't understand when I say I am full

No thanks honey not right now

Maybe later

There are things a husband can say and do

This one is not recommended

So I will make an attempt to walk it off and work up an appetite

A walk in the snow is the way I will go

Luckily my wife fell asleep on the couch

So it will buy me some time

Maybe I can push off supper to six if I am lucky

This may be just my way of drumming up a little excitement

When everything else is plain and quiet

No alarms no complications

Not even a notion of concern

      Eating when hungry is best so there won't be much left over, interesting thoughts here about left over food.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Next time tell him to let you know when he is hungry then maybe you both can eat the same thing. Then that would take all the fun out of it. So just enjoy all the things we get to laugh about. Thank you so much.

      You made me laugh with this on. My hubby has made the living room his work room where he works on his laptop. I work upstairs on my PC. I have a hard time tearing myself away from my work. So when I do and go down to make some food he has already filled himself up with toasted sandwiches. Well I don't let it bother me but we sure wind up with a lot of leftover food. lol
