Have you seen hilarious You’re not you when you’re hungry commercials by SNICKERS®? My favorite one is the first one with Betty White. Watching it you cannot help, but think What do I look like when I am hungry?
The boys in my family definitely get super HANGRY. Like father, like son – I have no other choice, but greet them by the door with a snack in my hand, if I want to keep peace in the house.
Why can’t everybody be like my daughter? She usually enters the kitchen and says the following in a very calm tone: Mom, I think I am hangry, very hangry.
Being a mom, you know I spend too much time in the kitchen getting everybody else ready yet forget to eat myself. If I knew ten years ago that I would be skipping meals, because I forget to eat, I would never believe it. However, I am not me when I am hungry and since I am a complicated person, you can meet a whole bunch of characters if you hang out with me for a while.
5 situations where a mom like me can get hungry, act unlikely, and might need a SNICKERS® to get to her old self back (tweet this)
Imagine yourself stuck in traffic on a highway with two children in a back of the minivan constantly irritating each other, a baby, who wants to eat and has no patience for the cars around, and you – tired of it all, hungry, hating the word “highway” along with the words “traffic”, “rush hour”, and “minivan”. I am having a mental meltdown! Who is sitting on the driver’s seat of my car? It’s LOKI!
Weekend Bicycle Trip in a Park
Outdoors, here we are! It only took me two hours to get everyone dressed, packed, and fed. I made sure that everyone went to the bathroom before hitting the road. And here we are, the kids are happily riding their bicycles, the weather is beautiful. And that is when I realize – I didn’t eat my breakfast! My toast most likely is still sitting in the toaster, after I unplugged it to make myself coffee, which I forgot to drink. And I did specifically tell the kids, if they don’t eat, they will have to wait until lunch. My stomach grumbles… I can’t stop thinking about my precious coffee… I am tired… Somebody, please carry me… Who is riding my bicycle today? Not me… but Bilbo Baggins.
Skinny Salad Kind of Lunch
Have you ever ordered a salad not knowing what you are actually getting? While your friends indulge in pastas and burgers, your lunch looks like a bad joke – iceberg lettuce, croutons, shredded carrots, and ranch dressing. The line is too long to order something else and your lunch hour is almost up. When this happens to me, I usually start getting some scary dark thoughts in my head. Oh, this is happening… Meet the dark side of Bruce Banner.
I can’t think of anything better to do while waiting at a doctor’s office, airport or at the kids practice than checking my emails, catching up on the latest Facebook gossip or reading a magazine. A glass of wine would be nice too, along with some cheese, and possibly a few crackers. But my phone is running low on battery, the magazine… (i swear I put it in my purse) is nowhere to be found, the only drink I can rely on is a day old cold coffee and I still have an hour and twenty minutes left of wait time. If you are sitting next to me, you know I am not happy, just like this character of “Anger Management”:
Can you think of the worst time to be hungry than on the middle of the night? Yes, I am very hungry and No, I don’t want to get up to go get me something. I am laying… waiting to fall asleep… I. AM. HUNGRY.
Grocery shopping sometimes might be the worst experience – the kids are running around, the store seems to move their products just to irritate you, and you always end up spending too much money… However, I do have my secret way to make everything ok.
