She Eats Like A Bird—All Of The Time

Father liked to tease mother.  One of his jokes was to announce, "She eats like a bird."  Then he would bellow out, "Ha, ha, ha, all of the time!"  He enjoyed his joke without ever noticing that while it amused her, it also annoyed my mother.  He refused to diet but she struggled to stay on a slimming diet for most of her adult life.  When she could resist a bag of chips, she snacked on a saucer of crackers and cheese, or a little bit of celery and cottage cheese, or some other nibbles.  She snacked every few hours to keep her hunger pangs at bay.

 

"Ha, ha, ha, all of the time!"  My father had such fun with his corny jokes that he got away with them.  He was never on a diet and he became quite stout.
