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 layman’s 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, I’ll rest.
