Right now I am very hungry, more hungry than I have been in a long time. It has been 21 hours since I have eaten and I have about four more to go. It’s funny how four hours can seem like an eternity. I don’t know why I thought this blog post would help my hunger pains, but perhaps if I talk enough about what I want, maybe I will be satiated. Probably not, but it’s worth a try. At least sitting on my computer will keep me away from the kitchen.
The question is, in my deepest state of hunger, what do I want? What does this say about deprivation? Furthermore, what does this say about the dreaded word….dieting?
At first considering this question, I really just want Doritos and Whitney’s Cookie-Brownies. I want Coffee Heath Ice cream. I want fritos, and a juicy cheese burger. I want Shepherd’s Pie and a Chocolate Shake. I want Giada’s Creamy Orzo and Sesame Chicken. I want a California Roll, Shrimp Tempura and Mashed Potatoes. I want a Thanksgiving dinner. I want a diet coke!!!!!!!!
meatloaf and mashed potatoes…ugh.
After looking at this list, I am sort of disgusted at myself. Look at all that nasty food! I have listed perhaps the most disgusting combination but also the highest calorie foods known to man. But I love food! I love food with a lot of flavor and gusto. When the depths of my stomach are yearning for even the tiniest of bread crumbs, I just want something big, gloppy, gooey and sensational.
For some of you, this post is a little inconsequential. So Jews have to fast, then we break it. No biggy right? But I have a problem with this whole thing. I’m SOO hungry and all I want is junk food. That just can’t be good.
What do you all crave when you’re drastically hungry? Please tell me I’m not alone in my cravings!
