    Tell her about the Black Friday sale at the Big Woman’s store.

    Only 4500 calories in a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Donna could work it off fighting over the item in the store she didn’t know she wanted 5 minutes earlier.

    I doubt the usual numbers touted for a meal on thanksgiving. Why? Because they don’t work.
    Do you know anyone who can eat a full pound of fat, such as a lb of pure lard or 1.25lbs of butter? I don’t. At 9 calories a gram, and~454g/lb that is 4086 calories fat is the most compact food form. When speaking of carbohydrates, it’s 1816 calories a lb. The human stomach of the typical person can hold a maximum of 2 quarts and you’d be very ill if you ate that much.
    I’ve even seen 10,000 calories claimed, which would be like eating 2.5lbs of butter or 9lbs of carbohydrates and it just doesn’t wash.

    My mother used to tell me that when I was too young to remember (maybe 2 or 3 years old) I once climbed up onto the kitchen table, grabbed a fresh stick (quarter-pound) of butter, and commenced to chew on it as though it were a carrot. She did not let me finish it.
    Donna just needs to be incentivized; and Mona is not helping. What are you, Mona, a communist?

    re: sisyphos

    hehe. My mom would call that stage where kids eat everything the “goat mouth” stage. Kids are experimenting with tastes and the parents have to watch them for putting things that are inedible in their mouths. I think we all tried to eat strange things as kids. Or sillier yet: apparently I would try to put keys in electrical outlets, having seen mom and dad put keys in locks.

    Yes – when I was young, I found the front yard dirt had a rather piquant taste… much better than the back yard dirt, which was rather flat and moldy.

    I never put anything in the electrical outlets. My mom had to watch me at the grocery store because I would grab a banna and eat the whole thing. She wound up holding the peel and asking how much was it.

    I think Donna would look cute OUT of anything…
