When I was in junior high I went to Chicago to visit my aunt. I was an avid runner then, and my caloric demand was huge. My aunt fixed me breakfast one day. She can still recite everything I ate. It was something like:
- A dozen eggs
- A half loaf of bread (toast)
- Three pounds of bacon
- Two packages of Jimmy Dean Sausage
- For gallons of orange juice
- One slice of melon
I think she saw it as an experiment. Kind of like seeing whether or not a dog will keep eating if you keep feeding it, until it explodes.
I didn't explode. But I got to thinking about this today because I've been running again and my appetite is enormous.
I like endorphines.
P.S. This made me laugh out loud.
