2007 end with me belly so chack-full, up to now them cupboards in me tummy pack-up. From Christmas day to yesterday, I eat eat eat. All kinda food been on different tables in various places, here and there. Grilled salmon. Baked sweet potatoes. Bhagee. Roti. Ginger beer. Curry beef and roast beef for meat-eaters. Milkshakes. Fruit cakes. Chocolate cake. Tea. Don’t ever fo’get the tea. Salad with lemon juice, dill and chop-up shallots. Baked chicken. Rice. Carrots and green things. More veggies. Baked tomatoes stuff-up with cheese. The days following Christmas we hang out with long-awaited family from Seattle who bring gifts from sister, cousins, auntie.
I am sure y’all eat plenty too, wherever you been…so…let us retire to the library, dear folks, puff away at rotund cigars and drink port or brandy or whatever them men of high society used to imbibe in olde English literature, I hope you don’t think badly of me for drinking the humble l’eau though…
I want to make a li’l wish for everybody. Salut. Sante. Good health to all for 2008. Prosperity. Happiness. Love. Warm hugs on cold days. Nice cool drinks when your life-pot get too hot.
Ahhh…now let we recline, rest we hands on we pretend paunches, burp in ungentlemanly and unladylike ways and gyaff…chat…what plans you got for this new year?
