We are Both Contenders

We should stop eating all of these fattening foods. Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy at the ready. But yet, it is Thanksgiving week and they put us in good moods. You start the potatoes, I‘ll warm the potatoes, I tell Freddy. We used to buy vegetables, but they always got thrown out. We are both contenders for serious conditions including gout. But we like our red meat, our liquor, our taters and our sweets. We definitely cannot give up bacon, ham, or t-bone beefs.

Oh my, my tastebuds are fluttering! Unfortunately I've had to give up some of the things I have loved the most for the sake of my health and well-being. But, this time of the year, I find myself ignoring all of my doctor's good advice!
