Plight of the Leftover Christmas Cookies

Cookies must not go to waste
Specially those of great taste
So right passed my lips
And straight to my hips
I WILL let them go to WAIST

I so love to munch and munch
They’re brittle now with a crunch
The flavors- still great
But don’t satiate
They’re great with my office lunch

My body keeps them in store
Why can’t I get through the door?
Should have thrown them out
Now I am more “stout”
Ok, perhaps just one more?

    This was fun, I too have been known to slip. My pants so tight they often rip. I oh so love to stuff my face. Tim Hortons is a magical place. I dunk my cookies till they drip. Thanks for the chuckle can you recommend a good place for Stetchy pants???
