Yea upon this day, Steph, a woman from the west, did take her two fair and righteous daughters, and didst travel afar to do much shopping. They didst barter and haggle much, and yea they didst purchase much that was fine and pleasing unto the eye of this woman.
And it pleased her mightily.
For low, this woman, Steph, was in the midst of a most painful and heart wrenching trial, that which is called, a diet. Therefore she was wary of visiting her second son, at the place he doth tarry and labor for reward. Such a place was known as, "Louie’s" and was owned by a fine and noble family from the land of Italy, and didst produce many fine and wonderful morsels, known far and wide as, Italian food. She found herself near this establishment, and low, there came upon her a temptation, strong and mighty. Being of much years upon this earth, and of weak flesh (she did not have the strength of Greg, who says to his flesh, ‘down flesh’ and it obeyeth him), she did give into the temptation and did partake. Yea she did partake of a most tender and delicious Rib Eye Steak, with Gorgonzola and Garlic cream sauce. And she did say to the kind maiden who did serve her, yea, I am sorely put upon by this diet, but will bid thee to serve me the sauce on the side, and bringeth me a fine sweet and spicy steak sauce. And it came to pass that her daughters were served with the finest Fettucinni Alfredo, and she was served with the finest of Rib Eyes, but, being weak and giving in to the tempation did eat of it, all the veggies, most of the steak and yea even partook of the sauce. And she and her daughters did eat. Yea, so much that they did swell to near bursting.
When she did see what she had done, she did mourn and wail, "Whoa, whoa is me, for I have sinned most grievously". And she did hear her youngest utter, "I dare not eat another bite, for if I do, I shall surely be sick". And it brought the young maiden’s Mother low, for she hath seen the havoc she did wreak, and didst also know it was a long ride home and did not wish for there to be sickness within her carriage, so, the woman did rend her garments and didst moan and wail, for great was her suffering, and great was her guilt at breaking her covenant of "The Diet". She gathered her daughters to her and bade they all speedily return home. Upon the way out of this den of iniquity, she did spy most wonderous renderings, wonderful and delightsome to the eye, they were of desserts, and most fair. Gathering her strength, she did ignore these wonderful delights, and the knashing of teeth of her daughters, who upon seeing such, had decided that they were not indeed full but had left a small amount of room that would fit such delights, but, in this she stood firm and they did return home, and did proceed to look for the tums, but found instead, Lindt, dark chocolate truffles, and the Mother sayeth to them… awww what the heck, just one! (I’ll have to try harder tomorrow) BIG HUGS, Steph
