Today Garrett and I have spent the day doing our favorite thing, sitting in the same room on different computers. He plays video games (circa 1994) and I read blogs and do other online things, sometimes I read books. We talk when the mood strikes. Sometimes I stop and watch him kill rats for awhile. But, mostly we just coexist no real interaction. We're close in proximity and that's nice.
BUT, there is one major issue with our days of doing nothing...it is 5:06 post meridiem and I have not eaten a single thing ALL DAY LONG!!
At about 1:00 Garrett said he was getting a little hungry.
I said want me to hunt through the cabinets and find something to make? (We're at his parents house (who are out of town) so it isn't our food).
He said no I really want a chicken salad sandwich from Cafe Bella. Great, when I finish this up I think I'll take a shower and we can go.
At 2:48pm I said so are you going to take a shower before we go? He informed me he was.
At about 3:32 he saved his game, left the computer and got dressed. Deciding he didn't want a shower, the water heater at his parents house is turned down to save money and the showers are FREAKING COLD!! I kid you not I had goose bumps my whole entire shower. INSANE!
I got up stopped what I was doing and put a load of laundry on to wash while we were gone. At 3:38 Garrett started to walk out of the kitchen and I asked where he was going...to look at one thing he said. On the game? Ya just one quick thing.
At 4:17 he asked where the closest Outback was, I told him and he said okay. I said do you want to go there and he said well it's my second choice if Cafe Bella is closed. Sure no problem.
Right now at 5:16pm I said to him I just blogged about how you never let me eat when I'm with you. And he laughed.
It's true though yesterday the first time I ate was at almost 7:00PM.
Why am I not skinny?!?!
Well, I know why and I have tried many times to explain to him that it is not good to eat only one meal a day. But, he just does not get it. If I start to get something to eat he says just a minute I'm almost ready to go.
Seriously, though I bet I am not sitting down to eat before 7:00 post meridiem.
Does he not get hungry? ever?
UPDATE: At 8:36, I was finally eating some yummy ribs from Texas Road House!!
