The title of today’s post is inspired by:
- all the people who are talking about food during this time of the year,
- worries that tend to eat away at people, and
- every single photo I took yesterday.
What are you eating these days? And what’s eating you?
Personally, I’d like to let go of all worries that are eating me. One worry I can let go of, immediately, is about what we’re going to have to eat during this week between Christmas and New Years, what with that enormous baked ziti Michael made for us yesterday. I don’t think it’s eating away at my son Aaron that Michael made that baked ziti instead of the lasagna Aaron had requested, especially since all the Christmas shoppers had eaten away all the lasagna noodles from the supermarket shelves on Sunday.
If it’s eating away at you, now, that you can’t see Michael’s lasagna, here it is — in a 2015 video created by Aaron and his friend Cameron (which is currently eating up bandwidth on YouTube and two previous posts of mine, here and here):
It’s eating away at me to share one more thing before I end this post and eat some baked ziti for breakfast. My use of the word “bandwidth” above reminded me of this exchange I had during a work meeting yesterday:
Co-worker: We should do it this way because we don’t have the bandwidth to do it otherwise.
Me (raising my hand): Excuse me? I keep hearing people use the word “bandwidth” in conversation lately and I’d like to know: What exactly do you mean?
Co-worker: Ummm. It means we don’t have what we need to do it.
Me: Okay! So it means “resources.” Thank you!
I also explained, before much more time was eaten up at that meeting, that it ate at me when people used the word “bandwidth”that way, since “I’m not a computer.”
Then, my manager offered me some chocolate (not pictured), which I promptly ate.
If there are any thoughts or feelings eating at you right now, I hope you leave them behind in a comment.
Thanks to all whose time I’ve eaten up with this post, including you!
