Gobble. Zzzzzzz.

Another contribution from Franchesca. Eating turkey makes people sleepy. Which presumably explains why I never feel tired after Christmas dinner. We all eat steak in our household.

more thoughts on tryptophan, which is the chemical in turkey that supposedly makes people feel sleepy:

the current thought is that eating turkey doesn't make people sleepy, but, rather, it's the amount of food people ate. When you're digesting a ton of food, your body has to send a lot of blood to the stomach, which can make you quite sleepy.
