Fly On The Wall In The Fall

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings, hosted by Karen of Baking in A Tornado. Today, five bloggers are brave enough to invite you into their homes for a sneak peek at what goes on behind closed doors.

     At the Doyle house, we're still recovering from "Distended Belly Syndrome" caused by all the Thanksgiving food we consumed yesterday. I've always said my family eats like vikings, and last night's meal was proof of that. Who can say no to 8 pies, 2 turkeys, 3 different homemade breads, and  5 ridiculously good side dishes?? And don't even get me started on the appetizers. I'm actually looking forward to starting a new diet on Monday! JUST SAY NO TO CHEESE.

     As always, there have been some weird conversations floating around the house (what else is new??). If you were a fly in the wall at my house, here's a few things you might have heard:

"Hey look---it's a landscape worker channeling his inner triceratops."

"Studies show that cats have better hearing than dogs."
"Well, they sure don't act like it."

"You haven't been watering the flowers outside. They're all dead."
"That's because I'm growing zombie flowers."

"Why is it that every time you sweat heavily with a t-shirt on, it leaves wet stains on the fabric in the shape of a smiley face?"
"I don't know; I guess I'm just one giant, human emoji."

"I've been researching homeopathic remedies to relieve my carpal tunnel."
"I can save you the time. It's called, 'Get a Hacksaw'."

"I need something to stop my constipation. All I can do is poop pebbles."
"Yes, and Bam Bam is soon to follow."

"I don't know what's in it, but maybe I should order the mystery box for dinner."
"I have a mystery box that I can show you...." <wink wink>

"This bathroom stall is so tiny---you have to be a contortionist just to be able to turn around and wipe your backside."

"Why is it taking them so long to bring me the Cuban sandwich I ordered? Did they have to go to Cuba to get it?"

 "I've been a Baptist, a Methodist, a Lutheran, and now a Presbyterian."
"That means that you're a sampler platter of religion."

"One of the side effects of this medicine is tarry stools."
"That sounds like a name for a British rock band....."

     Hope everyone had a lovely holiday. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to gnawing on my turkey leg and washing it down with some mashed potatoes. That diet might start sooner than I thought....

  1. Love how you managed to squeeze in a risque one, too!
    Thanks for the laughs. At least my food didn't exit my nose when I laughed!

  2. Sounds like you had tons of fun and also had a lot of help. How many for dinner?

    1. I did have a lot of help. There were eight of us together.

  3. Ha, I'm thinking Bam Bam would cause some pain, better stick with Pebbles.
    Hope the Doyle clan had a very happy Thanksgiving.

    1. Bam Bam would definitely cause pain, LOL. Hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving, too!

  4. I love this family! Amazing, isn't it when, after Thanksgiving dinner we groan things like: "I'm never going to eat again!" Then we're back a couple of hours later for some more potatoes and gravy and another shot at the pie!
    P.S. Don't let us know when Bam Bam shows up! ;)

  5. What a funny crew! I like the "sampler platter" comment. From a Wisconsite, please don't give up cheese. It's too good to give up.

    1. I could NEVER give up cheese.....or carbs, or chocolate, or wine.....the list goes on and on.....

  6. Looks like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our Thanksgiving was nice, too, but FILLING. I still feel like the stuffed bird.

  7. Looks and sounds like good times had by all!
