Holiday Dinner

Being on time Almost on time All my life Always strife Making ex cu u ses Why I am late Thinking it's stu u pid When they all wait Eat the food while it's hot Please eat the food while it's hot. (Silent Night)

I say let's eat! If people get upset with being late, why wait. Had to chuckle with this one. Happy Holidays! Karen

LOL! I shouldn't be reading this - could I possibly see this poem pop-up again somewhere else? Oh, Lordy - don't-cha just hate people/friends/relatives who are tardy...UNLESS they arrive bearing extravagant gifts and goodies to excuse themselves LOL! Wishing you and your loved ones Happy Holidays. Peace always, John
