Once in a lifetime!

You know how you sometimes have a moment in time that is so unique, so rare, that it's quite possible that at that moment, you're experiencing something that you may never experience again in your lifetime?!


This was one of those moments for me!!

I'm an incredibly slow eater! I like to savor each bite, and always make sure that I chew thoroughly. My brother teases me that when I was little I used to take an hour to eat ONE oreo cookie. Neil is the exact opposite. He's a shoveler (as his mom calls it). When he was little, he used to scoot his chair as far away from the table as possible, bend over with his mouth open by the edge of his plate, and just scoop it in. He doesn't eat food, he inhales it. After eating a nice plate of spaghetti, garlic bread, and green beans, I soon came to realize that lo and behold.....

I had finished first!!

It could have been that we had company staying with us, so Neil was on his best behavior and didn't gobble it all up. But I knew that this moment may never happen again, and that I needed proof that "once upon a time..." I DID eat my food faster than him.

Pretty sure it'll never happen again!

That is so funny! I am the shoveler and Curtis is the slower eater. He always tells me I never taste my food because I eat it so fast.
