Full your belly before you leave your yard

I can't tell how many times that was forced upon me while I was growing up.

Going to a party?
Full your belly before you leave your yard

Going to a wedding?
Full your belly before you leave your yard

Going to someone's home for dinner?
Full your belly before you leave your yard

The reasons were simple:
1. It's cheaper to feed yourself from your kitchen than to buy food on the road.
2. You may be unfortunate to have the food run out on you even at catered events
3. The food may be awful beyond measure and you may only have a few bites out of politeness and if you never "Full your belly before you leave your yard" gas and belly pains going to kill you!

So, I get invited out the mall, so I going to have to run because a need to full mi belly before mi leave mi yard.

This is sooooo ture LMAO. Lesley-ann and I had that experience at Strawberry Hill of all places, the food ran out, at the function to honour the Beijing athletes. Tickets were Platinum $30,000, Gold and silver at similar prices. We overheard Mike Fennel saying he may need to stop at KFC on his way down because he was hungry LOLOL. We eventually got something close to midnight.
