Mom has went over the ledge – you know that fine line of sanity. She is talking all kinds of crazy stuff this week. She mentioned *THAT* word. You know the one I’m referring to. That four lettered dirty word that should not be said in the Hotel Thompson. Come closer – I’ll spell it for you – D.I.E.T. Thud – piggy down.
Thankfully, she is talking about herself and doing this crazy thing called – well you know what it’s called… insanity. I have a physique to take care of. I can’t be bothered with not eating. I have to maintain my pot bellied belly and figure, right?
But to help mom out, I’ve started reading up on this D.I.E.T. stuff. Heavens to mergatroid! There’s a reason that the first three letters of the word spell out DIE. You can’t eat any good stuff. No grains, no breads, no potatoes, no processed foods – whatever will she live on – celery and carrots?
We ALL know what happens to mom when she starts speaking crazy talk like this here at the Hotel Thompson. We suffer. I’m sure she will make daddy start doing these crazy things as well. Last time they were on this crazy way of eating, they looked at me funny. Funny like their eyes started glazing over and they licked their lips. I think daddy even licked me one time during that phase.
Lord friends – what am I going to do? There’s only so many places to hide around here. Help? Suggestions?

Oh I hope you don’t ever have to diet Bacon! Woooowooooooo!

Oh no…….the “D” word is NEVER good…..there’s less food around for EVERYONE when just one human is doing the “D” thing and life without snacks and treats isn’t life at all….sniff….good luck Bacon.

Sigh – mommy says this is not going to affect us anipals but I’m not so sure. Last time, it didn’t end well. I caught mommy in the kitchen in the middle of the night eating pudding pops straight from the fridge! The horror of that. XOXO – Bacon

Brother you’re right DIET means “die” because you will get nothing to “et”. My sympathy… My mom is on this trip since I know her. Mostly she hungers alone, sometimes dad has to bear it and since I visited this vet-girl I’m in the boat to hungerland too. The worst is when girls are hungry they are as charming as a Komodo dragon…
11/08/2013 at 1:14 pm
This is true my friend. I can say the same for my mom. I’d rather take my chances in meeting Jimmy Dean in person than to have to cross mom when she is on this DIEt thing. XOXO – Bacon

Oh, Bacon, your above comment about the pudding pops! Caught red-handed!
Hang in there. Hopefully Mommy won’t become too grumpy and out of sorts during this time. I hope it doesn’t affect you, or Daddy. Sometimes when one person doesn the DIEt thing, they start getting the rest of the family involved! Eek! Keeping my fingers crossed!
11/08/2013 at 5:03 pm
Thanks my friend. I really appreciate that. I’m hoping that this goes well for me…snorts. I can’t afford to lose my pot belly! I’ve worked way too hard on it. XOXO – Bacon

I keep trying to lose weight too Bacon, but trouble is, it keeps finding me! Why can’t carrots taste like chocolate? 🙂
11/08/2013 at 8:46 pm
Oh my. If they did, mom would be the most excited person in the world! Mom giving up chocolate is going to be tough. Not just for her but all of us here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s going to be a bumpy ride! XOXO – Bacon
11/08/2013 at 8:30 pm
I would be hungry all the time if I went on a diet. LOL. Good luck to your mom on her diet.
11/08/2013 at 8:50 pm
Snorts. Mom referred to it as “the other way of living” tonight. I about fell off the couch snorting. DIEt does not equal “the other way of LIVING”. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Snorts. I think mommy will be doing that too. Poor mom. XOXO – Bacon

Holy moley Bacon…..that word….it’s even a small little portion sized word….it is possibly the rudest of four letter words…at least when peeps are on one..they say they are on one like it’s a ride..it is…through a tunnel of sadness..good luck mummy..and daddy….maybe see if you can stay at Hannahs for a while heheheh 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx

I might have to. Mom is going through the Hotel Thompson this weekend and “purging” all junk. This totally doesn’t sound good. XOXO – Bacon 🐷
11/09/2013 at 7:27 pm

Hasn’t mom heard of New Year’s Resolutions? Diet in November? Ooooh. She IS brave, not crazy!

Snorts. She mumbled something about hibernating like a bear. I think she has part of that right. She will be a bear – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Post-Halloween, we all go thru these phases, you poor thing! Hang in there– Thanksgiving is just around the corner!!!

Heads up – someone say Thanksgiving? That means yummy food. Oh I can’t wait! Thanks for the reminder. XOXO – Bacon

PLOL (Pig laughing out loud). I agree with your mom 100%. Us anipals need to have a little weight on us just in case something like that happens. I keep telling my mommy that she doesn’t need to do this DIEt thing because she’s fine just the way she is and daddy agrees. DIEts are for the birds! XOXO – Bacon
11/18/2013 at 5:50 pm

11/18/2013 at 6:36 pm
Snorts. I agree – moderation is good. I told her I would help eat half of her food. She didn’t go for that – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
11/20/2013 at 8:18 am

11/20/2013 at 8:53 am
Snorts – yep that’s what it was – the *stink eye* – PLOL (piggy laughing out loud). She’s been so careful with watching what she has been eating lately. She got on the scale this morning and said a few choice words. I’m thinking the scales are cooperating 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
11/20/2013 at 10:16 am
Me Mum went to da Hu’man Vet last week n she had to get weighed..now Mum iz a bit of a BEELUGA whale as she iz short n chunky…she got on scale n holded da breath…da Nurse sayz 165 poundz n Mum waz in shock…so she got off scale n back on n da same readin..turnz out she LOST 8 poundz!!!

Snorts! Yeah, I’m sure that went over really well with your mom about taking some of hers. Too funny! Mommy weighed this morning and I piggy swear that I didn’t put my front hooves on the back of the scale ‘this time’… looks around innocently. She didn’t like what the scale said and called it a few colorful adjectives. I squealed with laughter. Mommy is so funny – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
11/20/2013 at 9:30 pm
Went over like a led balloon so to speek…me cuud use a few poundz n Mum cuud spare wuite a few…*ahem* did not heer dat frum me 😉
MOL/PLOL ya putz yer hoovez on da back of da scale…..diz iz bery clever n funny…
Mum will not allow a scale in da place….she nose her weight frum da clothez… she haz ‘fat’ clothez’ chubby clothez n skinny clothez….ok no skinny clothez cause she never fit dem so she gave dem away…me says dey are chubby n chubbee-er clothez, MOL/PLOL…

Snorts. Chubby and chubbier clothes. That’s moms sizes. I figured if I put my front hooves on the back of the scales the next time she weighs, she will lose something. Therefore she’ll be happy. See in the long run, I’m helping her. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
