QOTD- To Eat Or Not To Eat?



Be warned. This is what happens when you sit down to write while hungry. You end up writing about food.

It’s a well known fact that “Weird Al” Yankovic often wrote his “hit” parody songs while waiting for the mac and cheese to cook. He was hungry is what I’m saying, and that hunger led directly to timeless classics like “Eat it” and “My Bologna”.

It is a little after eleven AM right now, and I’m very ready for lunch. I eat lunch early because I rarely eat any breakfast. I know, I know. I should eat breakfast. Internet articles and commercials I remember from childhood have made it very clear that a nutritious breakfast is the cornerstone of any healthy diet. But I can’t eat in the morning. Food is gross to me in the morning. As opposed to right now, when all food seems very, very good. Delicious. Whatever the opposite of gross is.

What the hell was I talking about? Oh yeah. Food.

Here’s a question. Do you write hungry? Or do you find that it results in rambling sentences that lead nowhere and add up to two hundred words worth of wasted time?

Bagel. That’s what I’m gonna have. With cream cheese, probably. And if there’s turkey in there it might evolve into an honest to God sandwich. Are you guys still here?
