I have been oddly hungry for the past week or so – actually ever since I arrived in Hyderabad. I’m not really sure what the reason is for the sudden onset of hunger pains. I thought for a moment that perhaps I had a parasite that has been snatching away all of my nutrients, but I kind of doubt that is the case. I think it is merely adapting to a slightly different menu and climate.
In any case, the other day I went out and bought a few snack items to eat when I got the munchies between meals. I quickly remembered why I hardly ever buy snack foods – because I eat them all immediately. I always have the best of intentions, to just eat a little, a handful or two… Nope. As soon as a bag is opened I will keep eating whatever it is until that bag is empty.
I’m a glutton for potato chips, what can I say?
It doesn’t really matter if I am hungry or not – if there are snacks, I will eat them. Even if I think I am going to save them and make them last, it doesnt matter. I know the snacks are there, just waiting for me. This is why I hardly ever buy snacks at home. On the rare occasion that I do, I get the smallest bag possible because I know I’m just going to eat the whole thing. Talk about a lack of self control. Shame on me.
Needless to say, all of my snacks are now gone. I’ve learned my lesson, yet again. No snacks for me (at least not until I can keep myself from eating an entire bag of chips in one sitting). It’s really too bad because now I want a cookie.
The worst part is – I’m still hungry. Hmm… maybe I do have a parasite?!?
