Thanksgiving Erotica: Basting the Turkey & Giving Thanks

 Stagehand Macaulay Culkin messed up as usual. He cut off a few letters from the end of lines, and the words "I need it all" from the line that starts "Out of the bag..." Apologies on his behalf.

The crew at Life by Chocolate (Robyn, Macaulay Culkin, Mario Lopez--he insists that I mention that he's A LOT bigger in person than he appears in the above photo, and DuPont--dressed to be eaten), wishes you and yours a delicious Thanksgiving.  To everyone, whether or not you celebrate the holiday, may you experience a sense of deep gratitude for your blessings.  Enjoy all that's sweet and savory.

I appreciate every one of you...for sticking around, indulging my quirkiness, laughing with and at me (it's all good), and for your ongoing warmth and support. You continue to make a meaningful difference in my life - so meaningful that I'll be dedicating my novel* to the followers of Life by Chocolate.

*Woman on the Verge of Paradise: The Anti-Fairytale, which is now in the very competent hands of Elsie Amata, Bryan Pedas and...drumroll & guitar strumming, please...Alex J Cavanaugh! The writing is done. The editing is just beginning. The querying and other stuff is yet to come...after we move to a bigger studio and get the holidays behind us. For now...
 
Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. So your saucy secrets will soon be in the public domain! Will you blush if you are interviewed about them on TV? Some like breast meat, some like leg meat, others prefer the stuffing. ;)

  8. The poem is great. I laughed a few times and now when I make the turkey, I'll be picturing Mario Lopez. "You like that marinade, Slater? Yeah, take that gravy injection and make me dance."
    What? You have your Thanksgiving rituals, I have mine.
    Congratulations on moving to the editing phase. That's a huge accomplishment. When you dedicate it, please thank all of us by name. ALL of us.

  10. Unlike Diane I do eat turkey, just not this week. I do hope you have a great Thanksgiving this week Robyn and that the breasts and legs don't disappoint.

  11. Your erotic poem gave me a chuckle. Have a great turkey day! Are you getting together with George?

  12. A delightful Thanksgiving poem but it doesn't hold a candle to 'Turkey Horse' lol.

  13. Okay, Robyn, you have definitely found your poetic niche! You must, simply MUST, write one of these poems for EVERY holiday of the year and then publish them together in a collection. What a gift that book would make -- perfect for ANY occasion! I predict massive sales.

  18. That little so-and-so Culkin never was worth a darn. Just when I was getting a little toasty myself.

  19. Oh man that poor horse. I wonder what he is thinking.

  22. GB, if Oprah asks me about my preferences and I mention the stuffing, yes, I'll probably blush.

    I love you all and will make rounds as quickly as possible.

    Eat well and feel blessed.

  25. Hey Robyn,

    As promised, even gone two in the morning, I have arrived with one of my award winning comments that certainly wont match your award winning post.

    Nothing like a bit of Anti-Fairytale where it's twice upon a time and then a bit more.

    Your post, ignoring innuendoes, is the "baste".

    All the baste for your American Thanksgiving, dear Robyn.

    Gary :) x

  26. Your poem is hilarious, Robyn! Loved it! :-D Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  27. This would be perfect for the Old Broads Erotica Collection! It might be risky, as many would require physicals before reading! Absolutely LOVED it!

    As for completing your novel, and putting it in great hands, I couldn't be more excited for you! Look how much you've accomplished in one year between your writing, and all the work you've done for suicide prevention!

    Happy Thanksgiving Robyn!

  28. Happy Thanksgiving, Robyn!
    I lay awake,
    the dawn not yet nigh,
    while visions dance in my head
    of pecan pie. Thanksgiving draws close, it's nearly here. Like that vicious hangover.
    Because of the beer.

  29. OMGosh - your poem Is so stinkin' funny! Too cute! Happy Thanksgiving!,

  30. Happy Thanksgiving Robyn. I am thankful this year I don't have to cook the turkey

  31. titter, titter - you are too funny Robyn..

  32. Did you ever work at KFC? You've got some great breast and leg material for your poem going on. I only ask because I did work there as a teen. You wouldn't believe the amount of nasty men that would come in and ask for breasts, legs and thighs that look just like mine. Gross! lol. However, it was much more fun reading your Thanksgiving Erotica as opposed to it coming out of the mouth of dirty old men ;)

    Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

  33. And here I thought turkey was dry and boring. I've apparently been having the wrong turkey all my life.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. As for me, reading your book on the beach made for a pretty damn awesome time. :)

  34. Wait…am I in the credits with Mario and McCauley???!!! I feel so famous right now!

    It has been an honor to take a peek at your book. You already know how much it's helped my family and I love you for that, Robyn! I'll be mentioning how much you touched our family with your writing on the IWSG post. Hugs to you, my friend!!

  35. Hope it was a great thanksgiving, awesome peeps!
