EATING & READING: YAY OR NAY?
Prompts: Do you ever (carefully) eat and read at the same time? Or are your books too precious to possibly get dirty? Perhaps eating and an audiobook? Do any books ever make you hungry? Is there a time and place for a nice snack or meal with a good book, or should books be focused on independently?
OF COURSE I eat and read. If I didn’t, I’d never eat, and then I would starve.
Specifically, I read at restaurants. I read on picnics. I read in movie theaters, eating popcorn and waiting for the previews. I eat in my car at Wendy’s, juggling some tasty cheese fries (extra pepper), with my kindle propped against the steering wheel. Just an hour ago, I ate in this very seat while I scarfed down some Special-K (with Red Berries, natch).
My favorite reading snack is probably some Twizzlers or Hi-Chews. They allow for good, contemplative chewing, plus they are delicious and decidedly not-messy.
What about you? Are reading and eating two great things that go great together? I’ll take your messy confessions in the comments.
