Eating is annoying

There's something I've been feeling for about a year at least, that I finally am going to share. I think eating is annoying. I mean, I like food, and I like eating... but I hate *having* to eat. I wish I didn't have to eat. There's so many things I could get done in the time it takes to eat. I don't claim to be a workaholic... in fact, I can be pretty lazy. But eating cuts into time I could be using for other things, like sleeping (on days I have to get up early) or writing. It also costs a lot. The longer I live, the more annoyed I get with eating. I wouldn't mind eating when I feel in the mood for something tasty, but eating two or three times a day every day... it gets mighty boring.

I'm sure there's a lot of people in the world, especially in poor countries, who wished they didn't have to eat either. It would save a lot of time.

Though I do wonder why I've only been feeling this way for the past year or so. I didn't used to. I used to love eating, it never got dull. I know preparing the food is the part of it I hate the most, but it's not the only part of it.
