Food for thought!

Well i have written this poetry after listening to a huge lecture given to me by my dear mom on the topic food....i know it is a bit silly but hope you all like it.

Food!

The proverb goes like this" you eat to live"and not "live to eat"
now these words really confuse me
as i am a person who is always ready for a treat
ready for heavy feast or a little bun
you will always find me waiting for my turn
but i just don't understand why my mom kills me with her words
saying i am not having enough...oh! you todays girls
look at you you have grown so thin...
well i knew it was just the beginning
as she starts lecturing me about the importance of various dishes..
which thank God does not includes the fishes
she goes off with huff and puff
leaving me up there to digest the same old stuff
having got used to it i digest it without much difficulty
thinking why should i actually feel guilty
when i follow my own motto of "live only to eat"
so don't aback if you have a treat to give....

Such fun to read. Over the past two weeks I've definitely been living to eat rather than the other way around! It's back to routine with your timely reminder today.

There is not a thing wrong with treats. All things in moderation is my key. I can not claim though, I have not had one or two conversations like this with my daughter. Mothers!LOL
