On the plane ride home, the woman across the aisle from me got on carting a box just like this one.
Which is TOTALLY out of character for me, considering; I hate food, and don’t talk to strangers, or eat in front of people. But for some strange reason I REALLLLLY wanted that popcorn. So I stared at it. The seats were slightly staggered, so I was just behind her. She couldn’t really see me.
The woman at the entire box by herself. She did it really fast, without reading the label, counting out a single serving, lining the pieces up, arranging, or otherwise playing with her food. She didn’t record it in her phone, intentionally pause and/or clean her hands between bites.
She just ate, one piece at a time, hand moving box to mouth almost non-stop until it was completely finished. Then she sucked and licked each of her fingers clean and fell asleep.
It was fascinating to watch and definitely made me green… I’m just not sure if it was envy or disgust.
If I didn’t have an eating disorder, I think I might like to do that…. Once.
But I do. And today, I was not very successful in The Rules department… Unless 455 could be considered almost 800. Maybe tomorrow.
