Cathy Classics by Cathy Guisewite for December 22, 2001
Cathy: I will eat this chocolate Santa before I go to Mom's house so I won't be tempted to blame her for holiday weight gain! I'm through making every ounce her fault! I absolve Mom of all food-related guilt! I eat to take responsibility for myself! I eat so that for once, my dear mother can be completely blameless! You made me the sort of person who would think of something like this!! Mom: Hard to get me out of the loop, isn't it?
