Merry Christmas part 2

Dec 21, 2019

A few things have come up since I sent the letter last week,

First we are participating in the 'Year End Blow out Sale from FabShopHop.com You can go to https://www.fabshophop.com and click on "BlowOut Sale!" for a list of participating websites now.

Second, I found this in the local free paper and thought I would share:

Subject: Christmas Cookie Rules
1. If you eat a Christmas cookie fresh out of the oven it has no calories because everyone knows that the first cookie is the test and thus calorie free.
2. If you drink a diet soda after eating your second cookie it also has no calories because the diet soda cancels out the cookie calories.
3. If a friend comes over while you are making your Christmas cookies and needs to sample you must sample with your friend because your friend's firs cookie is calorie free (Rule #1) it would be rude to let your friend eat alone therefore this makes your cookie calorie free also.
4. Any calories consumed during the frosting of the Christmas cookies will be used up because it takes many calories to lick excess frosting from a knife without cutting your tongue.
5. Any calories consumed while walking around will fall to your feet and eventually fall off as you move. This is due to the gravity and density of the cookie mass.
6. Cookies colored red or green have very few calories, red ones have 3 and green ones have 5 - one calorie for each letter. Make more red cookies!
7. Cookies eaten while watching Miracle on 34th Street have no calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.
8. As always, cookie pieces contain no calories because the process of breaking causes calorie leakage.
9. Any cookie consumed from someone else's plate has no calories since the calories rightfully belong to the other person and will cling to their plate. We all know how calories like to CLING!
10. Any cookies consumed while feeling stressed have no calories because cookies used for medicinal purposes NEVER have calories, It's the rule!!

Oh if only--Wouldn't have to fight with those extra pounds in January
have a Happy Hanukkah and a Merry Christmas.
