please pass the gravy (tuesday trivia)

Fun Fact: The average American consumes 4500 calories on Thanksgiving.

There’s nothing quite like stuffing three days worth of food in your face in one sitting, right? Sure, you might be stuck wearing sweatpants for a few days since your pants won’t button over your bloat. Or your digestive system will go into shock and revolt against you. Exciting side effect  to look forward to? Explosive diarrhea. 

Which leads to a Bonus Fun Fact: Thanksgiving is the busiest day for plumbers.

…. I think it’s a good time to come together and say a prayer for all of the plumbers out there who have to deal with a lot more gravy than what’s served on their plates this week.

    Makes you wonder if all the families with plumbers make sure they have Thanksgiving anywhere other than their own houses. Saves their plumbing and sends business booming. So to speak.

    Little anecdote: A friend of my husband’s once had to call a plumber, as his system had the audacity to create a smelly mess in his basement. When the plumber arrived (wearing boots, as it was snowing . . . though maybe boots are always a good idea), my husband’s friend noted as the guy was checking out the scene that there was a hole in the back of one of the boots, and things were seeping onto his white (not for long) sock. As the plumber checked out the situation, he called out, “Somebody had corn last night for dinner.” My husband’s friend lurched out into the snow and . . . had an involuntary personal protein spill.

    That’s made my day in more ways than one. Fortunately, I won’t be needing a plumber. If we did have a blockage, it could be disastrous as we have a Klargester and well, it doesn’t bear thinking about. My day wouldn’t be complete without mentioning poo.

    Thank you – just added a new verb to my vocabulary. Looked up ‘to bogart’ in the urban slang dictionary. Actually, I thought it was going to be something worse. Imagination in overdrive.

    You posts are hilarious and sometimes the only bit of adult conversation I have all day (yeah, I know, gotta work on that). Thanks for being so blunt and funny.
