Insatiable Appetite Sated

with 10 comments

It’s never enough. You can try to satisfy the cravings, but you can’t. Sometimes you struggle not to stick everything you find in your mouth like a baby exploring a room. I’m talking about an appetite, an appetite for food. 

Everyday I get hungry. Why it’s almost the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning, (besides empting my bladder and “I hope that was that just a dream?”). Food, food, food, damn body, why must you be so annoying?


It’s never goes away, (without coming back). I’ve eaten entire pizzas to myself, whole boxes of donuts, and am always consuming more than the “serving size” conveniently printed on any store bought, pre-packaged item. On a side note, who are these serving sizes for, dead gnomes? The serving size of Oreo cookies is two. OK, I’m stuffed, double stuffed…


Anyway, I eat everyday trying to make my stomach shut up. I eat several times a day, even on weekends and holidays. Sometimes I even eat snacks that look good even when I’m not that hungry because I know my idiotic stomach will be asking me later for what I’m seeing now.


My stomach’s favorite food is the sandwich. It doesn’t much care what’s between those two pieces of bread, it just likes them sandwiches. Cheeseburgers have always been a big hit inside my gut.


So today I was driving around looking for free military surplus when my stomach started acting up again. “Damn, not now. Why? I just fed you like three hours ago!” I shouted at my bottomless pit. At that precise moment chance made me look up and I saw a golden light shining down from a sign.


I thought it to be an angel coming to answer my prayers. It was like nothing I had ever heard of or seen before my entire life. If this couldn’t bring happiness and satisfaction to my stomach nothing could.

Four kinds of meat, one kind of delicious!

Now that’s one helluva sandwich!
