Weird Hunger

Few minutes ago, I had this funny feeling I was hungry! I call it ‘funny’ feeling because it wasn’t up to ten minutes when I finished a mound of garry and bitterleaf soup. 😊

If you ate such as lunch, you should as well forget about your dinner because it could take up to twelve hours before you would feel hungry again.

When I couldn’t bear the hunger anymore, I strode to the kitchen to make myself something to take my hunger away.

After eating, I began to feel like I’ve not eaten in weeks. I became more famished.

What? Not again!πŸ₯Ί

It’s weird!

I hope I’m not turning into a glutton. As far as I’m concerned, it would be a bad thing to be at a time when we’re experiencing a lockdown.

When the crazy hunger persisted, I thought of what to do. πŸ€”

I was going to ignore it and do something else – something productive πŸ€”.

If I got busy, the hunger would be forgotten.

What followed next was serious battle. I battled with the temptation to go back to the kitchen even when the content of my stomach had began to tumble into my mouth.

I was staggering towards the kitchen like the drunk about to pass out, hoping to take just a little food when it hit me.

I’ve not written in two days.

I smiled at the joke, snatched myself away from the direction of the kitchen and scampered to my writing corner.

When I picked my pen and wrote my first word ✍, I felt satisfied.πŸ€—

My hunger was gone!

πŸ˜ƒ

Hope you’re all coping well.

Stay safe!

    • πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒYou know when you’re forced to stay at home, that’s what happens. Eating becomes a thing to do to pass time. Writing helps. Thank you so much for leaving a comment.πŸ‘Œ

      • And when you’re in the kitchen, it’s hard to not open the fridge. It’s the strangest habit that probably added many pounds to my body. NEED self control. lol.
        Even though I complain, I feel blessed that we have good food to eat at home.
        Hope your writing is productive this week and you feel happy working on it!!

        • Lol..exactly! It’s strange! You’re right about self control. If you can control, that won’t be much of a problem.
          My writing has picked up and is going quite well. I enjoy writing a lot. I hope you’re coping well. Thank you so much for your support. Have a blessed day.

          • That’s good to hear! My writing is going through a flux. I want to spend more time writing, but time sitting in front of the computer seems to get lower and lower. When I’m on the computer, suddenly kids need my attention. lol.
            Have a great weekend!

            • I can relate to that.πŸ˜ƒ My kids are welve, ten & eight, and they still need certain level of attention. I keep hearing, ‘Mimmy, can I ask you a question?, Mummy, can I talk to you? Mummy, can I tell you something?’ whenever I spend too much time with my laptop. So, while they are awake, it’s almost impossible to think straight. However, early morning hours are perfect for my first draft. I use any time of the day or night for re-writing and editing. Thank you very much. You too, have a beautiful weekend My warm regards to your lovely kids.

              • I feel better about my day when I do get a chance to write. I think it lingers in the back o my head that I’m not tending to something that makes me happy. But when the kids are on their groove, watch out, I’m bombarded with requests, tears, hugs, etc. It’s a great life season to have young kids, but as you probably know, it’s a lot o wear and tear on the body and mind.
                I hope you have a great week of writing and playing. Easier said than done. Stay well and take care. πŸ™‚
