I have discovered my true love…

Last night was a revelation of sorts for me. I have finally discovered my true love. How many people can proudly say that? A few. I have discovered that I love food more than anything in the world right now…and that sufficient quantities of meat get my high and it gives a kick much better than getting drunk. Sorry booze, I love food more than I love you. Sorry LIIT, sorry Jack Daniels, sorry Johnny Walker, but I love food more, especially meat.

It was Tava’s birthday and he gave us all a treat at Barbeque Nation. They serve unlimited starters here which had an array of all my favourites. Chicken, mutton, fish, prawns…. (am drooling again). I thought it would be a pretty boring evening for me as I had sworn not to drink. (Owing to the great quest I am on right now). How wrong I was?

The meat just kept coming. They never stopped. The more the waiter put in front of my plate, the more I ate. It just kept getting tucked into all those nooks and crannies in my tummy. Half an hour in, I was genuinely high. I sang aloud to all the songs they were playing and being extra nice to everyone. (…which is a marked improvement from my generally scornful self these days). God; it was awesome. I have never felt more content in life in a long time. This was a high like no other. All that gorgeous edible meat!!! I must have binged on food like I’ve never seen it in ages. And at the end of it all, I was sufficiently high. Was loud, boisterous, and sang a lot. (This is a sign that I’ve had one too many). And went singing Rock On!! songs all the way home.

I have discovered that I love food. I really really love food. I really really really love food. It was my first love and will continue to be so. I am probably the reason why the saying, “A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!” is still used. One’s first love will always hold a special place in one’s heart, even if it means fat deposited on the inner layers of my veins and arteries reducing blood flow and increasing cholesterol. As you can see from the picture, I am as content as content can be. Contrary to what my friends are saying, I am not about to deliver twins! It’s all the yummy food in the tummy!

Now I face an uphill task of losing weight in time to buy clothes for diwali!!!! But screw it! I love to eat! I love food!!! Period.

There must be more to this provincial life…

Days you want to get high for no apparent reason….
