A few years ago I was having a hell of a time getting food down,
but I'd fake it in company. My sil's father, I love him, but in his
loud voice, Is that all you're eating?? Why aren't you eating more,
it's Thanksgiving! Oh, I'm not hungry, I had something before we
came. Who eats before Thanksgiving dinner?? he boomed.

Can't get anything past those goombas. (laugh) (and no offense to
our goomba, it's an affectionate term where I came from)
