Too Much Dinner - a food poem

Too Much Dinner
by
Greg Pincus

I ate too much dinner.
I think that I'll burst!
Good thing I was clever and had dessert first.

I was just wishing that, yesterday, of course. You said it just right! But now I'm thinking of leftovers, maybe pie first this time?

Hee hee....love this. Short and sweet! Alas, I did not eat my pie first last night and I was too full for it after dinner. Of course the good news is - I get my pie tonight!!

I love it! (How did you know that this is exactly how I feel today?)

Janet - we all feel this way :-) But I'm also pleased to see that we're also all looking for other ways to have dessert. Personally, I believe pie as a leftover can be a healthy breakfast. And apple crisp? I mean, that IS breakfast. Or a snack. Or dinner!

Eat dessert first is just good common sense in a crazy, mixed up world! Wonderful poem, Greg. I'm a confirmed eater of desserts first, and sometimes to the exclusion of all else!!! Ya only live once, ya know!

Super sweet. With a hook and a twist and warm at heart!
Nicely done,
Namaste,

I could use a little bit of "dessert first" in my life right now!
