The whole "loving food" thing has always interested me. I used to work with a guy whose entire day was about what he was going to eat. I used to drive him nuts because while I like food (and love some), it's really just something that my body requires. He used to say, "You know what, Donger!? You eat to live. I live to eat." I actually enjoy the process of making a meal a lot more than eating it.
I think the young people enjoy it when I "get down," verbally, don't you?
