Every once in awhile I read one of those poems that tells you to live each day to its fullest because life is short. I get that.

One of the lines in these poems usually tells you to not take any days for granted, go ahead and indulge, have that ice cream cone, etc. Quit waiting for when you’ve lost ten pounds, because you’ll be waiting a while.

So, I took that poem to heart tonight. I tossed caution to the wind, and I ordered me the biggest cookies n’ cream milk shake I could find. “The poem,” I told myself.

I must admit, it felt good to live today to the fullest, except…

…I had to unbutton my jeans. I’m full alright.
