Sinner?

Gluttony:
An inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.
Hubby and I are guilty of committing this Sin, sometimes we even convince others to join us in our road to Biblical defiance.
We are HTB sinners. (HTB: Home Town Buffet)

Every now & then we like to hit the all you can eat buffet and just completely act like the fatty's we are. I mean how can you not love the idea of eating a salad, maybe a little Italian then go back for some carved ham. Oh and don't forget dessert, with the soft serve ice cream and hot fudge cake.
I'm making myself hungry again I need to stop.
See although this is a very casual place to eat, there is still a little process we like to follow at the buffet. Nothing fancy just some "Bon Don Etiquette" to get you through your dining experience.


Rule #1. Take it slow.
Never start off with a giant heaping plate of food, you need to make sure you take small portions, you know, more like samples. That way you don't get full too fast or overwhelmed. Once we took a friend who thought she knew how to hang with the big dogs, she ate so much she turned pale and almost pasted out. It was kind of funny. We pointed and laughed.

Rule #2. Wear comfy clothes.
Always wear expandable pants, leave the jeans at home.
I couldn't resist taking this picture the other night. The man in this picture totally had the right idea! "Zebra print MC Hammer pants" dressed up with a button up shirt and sweater, you know comfy on the bottom but dressed up above the table.


Rule #3. Never fight over food.
Yes that's right, don't ever fight over food they always replenish food items. I promise. For instance take the lady from the other night, see I asked Hubby to serve me some Jello with a side of whipped cream. ( I was too busy trying to get a picture of homeboy in the zebra pants) as Hubby was serving my Jello this lady stood there hovering over him and had the nerve to say:

Lady: "Are you kidding me?

Hubby: *Looks over his shoulder to see if she's talking to him*

Lady: Are you seriously going to take the rest of that?

Hubby: Why did you want some?

Lady: Yeah

Hubby: "Oh" ok then.

looks right at her as he scoops and proceeds to take more then originally planned and wiped out the rest of the Jello just to piss her off!*

I love my Hubby... and yes I finished all the Jello and looked right at her while eating it!

thursday is my hubby's b-day and we are going to his favorite restaurant: Furrs Fresh Buffett.
yes, a buffett is our romantic birthday meals b/c the hubby doesn't believe in paying $10 for one meal when he can pay $10 and eat as many meals as he wants.

i will take your rules into consideration!

Watch out! Zebra pants!

Himbo said...

Lol! Funny stuff, madam.

Wait! Bon Don I told you not to take a pic of me when I wasn't looking! Kidding, I am way to luxurious to walk around in those pants. You might catch me in a leotard @ HTB while signing "You shoulda put a ring on it", but never that.

Btw, you were pointing and laughing for different reasons... ooooh! Jk Sum 1 Old!

Andy said...

Who gets upset over Jello? I mean, really?

Yua sista said...

I have to agree with Andy- REALLY Jello? It doesn't even have a taste of chocolate in it! You know I know my hardcore -tattoed-tank top wearing Compa and had the girl asked him or mentioned kindly that she would like some Jello he would have shared! He really should have scopped all he had on his plate to hers and said "OK well go ahead and take this, I'll wait for the fresh batch! ;-)

Stephanie said...

Dude, I didn't even know they had all you can eat buffets out here! There's a place in my hometown (Omaha Nebraska!) called The Old County Buffet. My grandparents loooved it. My friends always called it "the old cunt." Lovely!

And heeey! Love those zebra print pants. Tres Chic!

Mary Moore said...

You're hilarious, as always. By the way, buffets are my son's absolute fave. His eyes glaze over at the mere mention.

I've nominated you for an award, by the way. Check out my site for the info!

Kellie said...

Mmm. We have a Mongolian buffet up here that is to. die. for. I always laugh at the people who stuff their bowls so full it is over flowing and then they have to balance it and try not to spill it. Hello people!?!? It's a buffet! You can go back for 2nds! Some people are so dumb. They need to read your list of rules.

SheBloggs said...
