What is Hunger?

[weather|sunny]
[mood|pensive]

Here's another clue that I might not be human.

Y'know, I don't ever remember feeling hungry. That's not to say that I've never been hungry. Physically being hungry is not the same as the feeling of needing to eat. I know why we need to eat to sustain physical bodily functions and all, I'm just not a Food Person in general. I eat because I'm bored or because someone else tells me so, not because I'm hungry.

It could be because I don't remember ever breathing out of my nose before I was 12 and smell is a large part of the eating experience. I also don't understand the incredible woe when friends tell me that they have a cold and can only breathe out of their mouth. Umm, yeah, so?

It's always difficult when someone asks me what I feel like having when we go out together. Uh, food? Food would be fine.

I can go for days without eating, I eat because it scares people when I don't. 10-day fasts are easy for me.

The only food craving I have is for brussell sprouts, but it's not like I'll go crazy if I don't have any - it's more like I'm willing to finish off the rest of it if no one else wants them. I asked my doctor if this is because I'm low in iron (under the theory that you crave foods that contain what you're lacking) and she said, no. Apparently, people who are low in iron report that they crave dirt.

Ok, well, that clinches it - we may have the same last name but there's definitely no blood relation there. Food runs through our veins, we breathe it, we eat it, we sleep on it, we spend long amounts of time washing it out of our nose and clothes afterwards (heh).

Either that or you're from some mutant weird branch of the family. ;)

Hehehe.

Whatever happened to craving things like ... chocolate? You sure you're not pregnant? *ducks* :-)
