C.O.A.E.E.(Confessions Of An Emotional Eater)- Weeks 13 and 14

Lady Gorge-a-lot

Dear Santa,
I’ve been a bad, bad girl
I’ve been selfish and careless and not at all wise
And to summarize, well, I ate a lot of fries.

Dear Santa,
I’ve been a bad girl
I’ve eaten recklessly and enjoyed myself thoroughly
I’ve devoured sweets like there was gonna be no tomorrow
I’ve gobbled up carbs like a woolly mammal in need of more layers
I’ve had a bite and then a meal
I’ve had dessert AND apple pie!
I noshed and picked and nibbled and munched
I wined and dined until it fully affected my mind

Dear Santa,
I’ve been greedy 
And then I got greedier
And then I stopped
To think about all that I ingested 

Dear Santa,
I bathed in butter
And now I am butter
Because I feel like butter
And taste like butter
And walk and talk like butter
And get licked like butter
So, you see, I’m afraid I must be butter. 

Dear Santa,
I’ve made a pig of myself
But you can understand me
Thanks to that “milk & cookies” love.

Dear Santa,
You are fat;
Tell me, have you gorged-a-lot?
