Abdicate – (v.), to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach.
Summer is here, and we can’t seem to get enough of those light, frosty summer treats, like ice cream, Italian ices, and daiquiris. Summer will lead to fall, and more treats as candies fall into the pumpkins and cauldrons of the trick-or-treaters. Then comes the holidays, which pretty much start on Halloween. So, with all those temptations coming your way, is it no wonder that many people tend to abdicate. So many sweets and ways to fatten ourselves up comes as the seasons change, but one thing tends not to change. The way we celebrate with all those fattening goodies. Summer time cook-outs, football season tailgate parties, and holiday feasts just add fodder to the fire, no matter if the pies are lemon, sweet potato, or pumpkin. No matter if your side dish is yellow squash casserole, shrimp fried rice, or scalloped corn, there is no escaping the many reasons to abdicate thanks to our many traditions around the world when it comes to holidays, festivals, and fiestas. So, indulge in moderation, and maybe you might not have to abdicate after all.
Anyone who says an onion is the only vegetable to make you cry, has obviously never been hit in the face with a pumpkin
