You go to the fridge. It’s empty. You go to the cupboard. It’s empty. You go to the drawer. It’s empty.
There are precisely 9 feels you get when you realise there is no food and these are those:
Initially you want to hurt the world. You want to throw things and break things and stamp your feet and cry out in anger at the pure injustice of this day.
There is food somewhere… I know there is… I will hunt it down. I WILL FIND IT.
Hmm, you think. I can rustle up something decent with half a rotten cucumber and a tin of spam. I am the best cook in the world!
Alas, you cannot.
Food is always there for you. Always. Apart from when it’s not. A tear rolls down your cheek.
You have a vision of a giant burger with legs walking towards you. You blink. It’s gone.
Now you’re freaked out. And alone. And hungry still. Panic settles. It’s hard to breathe. The situation is spiralling out control.
Rational thought begins to come back. Ahh… someone will be home soon with a meal. Ahh… the takeaway menu. Ahh… I have a car that could take me to the supermarket.
It’s your own silly fault for being unorganised. You’re annoyed with yourself.
At the end of it all, you’re still hungry. Great. You feel an immense anger come on *go back to step one*.
Exhausting. But don’t reach for the takeaway menu! Source some great ingredients and get to the SORTEDfood website pronto for some awesome, quick and cheap recipes. Let the tummy rumble no more.
