I've been down with some stomach problems from the past one week. For almost 5 days I had lost my appetite.So much so that I felt like puking when I smelled food! Now, that is weird coz being the foodie that I am, I have never been through such a phase.Yes there were these minor 'I dont want to eat' phases but they were quite rare.
Thanks to my ailment, I lost a little weight (yay! *grins*) and food was the last thought on my mind .But since the past two days I've been craving for food when I stay hungry for more than a few hours! And by food I mean junk food! I am a typical mumbaiite so grabbing a Jumbo king after college on my way back home, having those roadside chats and sandwiches comes naturally to me. Yes and that happens even when mom takes the trouble to pack lunch (read boring lunch!) for me early before leaving for work.
I was just thinking how addicted I've become to junk food.Just 5 days without the junk and here I am dying to eat fast food!
After a lot of pleading "Mom please let me have one sandwich!pleeheease mom, pleeheease! I'll die(*over acting*)", all I get to hear is "When I say no! I mean NO junk at all kiddo"
Its so difficult to pass by one of those fast food stalls and not have a bite of that junk.I mean, that's like insulting junk food!
You try not be tempted when your best friend's having that delicious chicken roll with lots and lots of mayo in it.
"Would you like to taste this one" she asks you
You say "No,thanks I am not supposed to eat it" when you actually wish that roll was in your hands instead of hers!
After a few seconds you see the roll disappearing bit by bit into her mouth,you see the mayonnaise dripping out of it...then a few pieces of onion....
Your mouth starts watering....
"That's it! I cant take this anymore....! I am buying it for myself!"
So you see, with junk food, its that easy!Ever seen that happen with karele ki sabzi??
I guess I really need some junk for my trunk! Maybe that is the antidote for my ailment!Who knows!?...But these parents and doctors....*sigh*
