“Keep in mind that even during a pandemic no matter much chocolate (and cheese) you eat, your earrings will still fit.” Anonymous
A comforting thought in these troubled times, especially for chocoholics like Virginia.
Virginia is glad her earrings still fit, but finding a pair of shorts that fit is another matter altogether, a weighty matter.
The weight of the matter is heavy, TEN POUNDS to be exact. The problematic location of these pounds makes squeezing into summer shorts an impossible task.
The other day while trying on 20 pairs of spiffy shorts from the recesses of her closet, Virginia thought: “How could they all have shrunk over the winter?”
It seems unlikely that 20 pairs of shorts would shrink, all at the same time.
Hmmn. Miss Murple in Purple (what my brother calls this avid Miss Marple groupie) made a calculated deduction.
To the scales! Oi vey, not a happy day.
All those coronavirus stay-at-home treats from Virginia the Baker (cheesy biscuits, blueberry cheese muffins, chocolate ricotta muffins…) and Virginia the Cook (cheesy veggie lasagna, 5 bean chili-cheese soup & 4 cheese nachos a little too often) = a weighty matter.
Too much matter in me!
Unless Virginia does something drastic (like, um, a DIET) her shorts won’t fit until September – when it will be time for them to be packed away.
Voluptuous Virginia must get her “well rounded” curves back in the right places.
This week it’s back to lettuce and NO MORE CHEESE.*
grace, peace & weighty matters
Virginia : )
*Chocolate still allowed. (Virginia must keep up her strength!)
