“I want to listen to you but I’m thinking about snacks.”
This sort of conversation is the worst. Talking with someone whose eyes are glazed over (which reminds me of a donut, of course). Drool starts slipping out the side of his or her mouth…that’s when you know you have lost all hope of any attention. Food has completely occupied that person’s mind.
All I can think about sometimes is food.
My painted pink nails start to resemble frosting. And next thing I know, I am sitting at a giant chocolate bar instead of my desk. The blonde next to me has spaghetti noodles piled nicely on top of her head. Maybe that’s why Ariel uses a fork for a hairbrush, for she’s just as flustered as I.
Okay, so maybe that is a bit extreme, but food can be exhausting. Thoughts of food creep up constantly, especially for those trying to manage weight or follow a specific diet.
Let loose of the reigns a bit to better control these food thoughts! Then, blink a couple times to deglaze your eyes and open those ears to listen.
