Eureka.... Anaa light bulb moment

This ruminating business sure is paying off. On the 9th day it has occurred to me that I actually have an eating disorder.. I know, I know whoever heard of an African with an eating disorder. But well the symptoms are quite distinct, I think, and indicative of this condition which my limited medical vocabulary has led me to resort to laymans terms short term memory loss. Presented with food, free of course, I will forget that I just recently ate and gorge my face and that too is soon forgotten God forbid there be a third helping of free food. I will also, on occasion, forget that I have not eaten and not bother to. Very enlightening these light bulb moments. On the tenth day, perhaps, Ill rest.

hehehe, now all you need is a clever name like Keifidiosis and you can take it on Oprah and start a Keifids Anonymous...well maybe not keifid, sounds too much like K-Fed, and you know how that turned out, tsk tsk. ;) And why rest when you're on a roll? nicely written, i like :)

I also have a similar one.

I remember having eaten and find it hard to resist when confronted with food once more.

I've eaten lunch, had colleagues swing by my desk and ask me to join them for lunch and gone and had another full lunch again.

I think they call it gluttony in my case. :-|

To he who enjoys being tagged [SMHWW] - (the last 'w' is for 'Why'), here you go luv. Tagged. It's the 'write 10 honest things about yourself then tag 7 others' thing. Mo details at Mo's and Val's. Have fun!
