  • Actual convo with my roommate...

    Him: By the end of the night I will have had four dinners tonight!
    Me: Uh, isn't that a bit excessive?
    Him: Nah. I had a bowl of pasta with alfredo sauce when I got home at 4:30, and then I went to the mall with my friend and we got slices of pizza. I got home at about 6:00, and decided I'd make a bowl of oatmeal to get some fiber.
    Me: But that's only three dinners, so...?
    Him: Now it's 7:00 and another friend invited me to go out for wings and ice cream. Hell yes!
    Me: Yep, it's excessive. And you had breakfast and lunch today too?
    Him: Of course! I had a bowl of Lucky Charms for breakie and for lunch I had a penut butter and jelly sandwich on Wonder Bread. Can't let my metabolism slow down! What have you eaten today?
    Me: Absolutely nothing all day.
    Him: Jesus man, you need to start eating! Your metabolism must be glacial!

    I didn't even bother to tell him everything that was wrong with this conversation.
    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

      Tell him metabolisms don't start to slow down for atleast 48/72 hours. I think more people need to know that. I certainly wish I was told this when I used to eat 6 times a day.

        Your roommate said "breakie?" I can see why you posted this thread.
        You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

          Because I've already explained it to him hundreds of times before, and it didn't take then, it won't now.

              Yeah, I used to believe that ol' myth too. It was bad for me when I wasn't able to eat because of school/work or whatever. I would literally freak out.

                You can lead a CW to good health/food, but you can't make them eat:-)
                Free your mind, and your Grok will follow!

                  This guy, it's not hard to convince him to eat. He's talking about how he dreads the "metabolic slowdown" he's going to suffer in a number of years.

                  Ah, Mark's post yesterday would have something to say about that one, yes?

                    If that's typical for your roommate, can you imagine how crappy he would feel if he missed just one meal?

                        Oh God... I am laughing just thinking about it. I remember the time I told him what IFing was and why it's good.

                        "Good?!? Sounds more like a way of committing suicide to me!"

                          Me: Oh yeah, I made this lard from the pig I got last month.
                          Her: Lard? But, isn't that high in fat?
