So, I buy one of those big round angel food cakes they sell in grocery stores. Yeah, I sliced it down the middle for one serving. Naturally, I didn’t think it was that big a deal. It’s SO light-weight, after all. How do you get full from a tiny slice of this?! I knew I’d be going for 2nds and 3rds anyway. It’s air, for Pete’s sake!
So, I innocently put the one-half piece inside a paper towel and proceeded to walk around eating it similar to how you’d eat a hot dog—you know, direct mouth contact. Of course I didn’t think much of it at the time. I guess I was eating it as if it was something natural to do—clearly unaware of my immediate surroundings.
Well, a dear friend happened upon me while I was eating and the next thing I heard was, “DDDAAAAANNNNGGGGG!! I thought you had a loaf of bread in your hand!” (Talk about making somebody feel bad and like a pig—but clearly not bad enough to stop me.)
So, if you have nothing else to do today, look at the label first and maybe slice an angel food cake into the number of recommended serving sizes the manufacturer thinks it should serve. Do this if for no other reason than appearances sake if others are around. BUT if you’re by yourself—it’s on and poppin’. Who cares?
Take-Away Life Lesson: Stop eating in front of people unless you can clearly eat like their ‘kind.’
Did I Really Just Eat All That?
