Bet you'd sell your mother.

Tweeting about eating.

In the mid-morning, I hunger, and feel ill. I try to stanch the feeling with water, maybe coffee, or a piece of gum.

At lunch, at last, I eat. By this time I have snacked, hopefully on something good I have brought with me, like carrots or an apple.

Regardless, I feel bloated and unhappy. I need to unbutton my pants. I have gas. I become lethargic, less productive. I struggle.

When I eat a Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie, I see the face of Jesus.

When I have 99 cent bag of Doritos, it tastes like ground glass. When I tuck into a Family Sized bag, all is right in creation.

So much housework, no time to run. Feels pointless, anyhow.

Eating is easy. Making time for me is hard.

You ran 4 miles on a day when you felt ill?

I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you, but I was speaking in the abstract about recent events. Yesterday was great!
