What does one need to lift one’s mood on a cloudy, wet, gloomy day when one is generally feeling lazy & unproductive?
How ‘bout KFC?
Yup. Kentucky Fried Chicken. Greasy, deep fried and smokin’ hot :)
I can see food connoisseurs snickering but sometimes you just CRAVE KFC. What are you to do then? Big chunks of piping hot deep fried chicken put you in such a warm, happy place. You feel satiated with the very first bite, satisfaction that you can feel deep down. A smile creeps over your surly face…and stays on. I had KFC for lunch, and I want more!!
Come to think of it, food can be such a comforting thing, especially hot food. Greasy food too sometimes, like after you’ve been on a drinking binge. Food is the one thing that remains common across moods – we eat when we’re happy, sad, depressed. It really is essential to our being.
After years of being in denial, I’ve finally accepted that I love food. I don’t live to eat. Food isn’t on my mind all the time, but I love good food, I love eating out and I crave variety. Chinese, Thai, Italian, Mexican, Lebanese, Mediterranean…I love it all!
You know what, I think I'm on my way to KFC again. Don't snicker y'all...Remember the days you crave brownies? Or hot pakoras? Or whatever it is that floats your boat!!
