Where I come from, stuffed usually means tired, evervated, knackered … Here it means full, replete to the point of excess…
For me, today, I am claiming both meanings for myself… At two parties I have eaten enough to feed a small 3rd world nation and I am climbing into bed at midnight.
Our staff Christmas ‘do’ was at a fine harborside restuaurant serving Sydneys finest seafood *gags* fortunately for us old testament eaters there was a delish lamb all served silver service and with lots of lovely non alcoholic drinks (I work for a church… remember?). It was all lovely, and yummy and very chatty etc but the piece de resistance of the meal was the massage.
heard read me right, the massage.
3 Minute Angels came and spread their brand of Christmas cheer and gave us all 5 minute neck and shoulder massages…
Mmmmmm bliss… Zzzzzzzz Zzzzzzzz
in france apparantly ‘stuffed’ (or was it ‘full’) means ‘pregnant’ my french teacher told us that once she leaned back at the dinner table in france and announced (in french) that she was stuffed.
everyone stopped what they were saying and stared at her.
A head massage after Christmas dinner? I guarantee I’d fall asleep face first into my pavlova!
Nice idea :)
