A Funny Thing about Skipping Meals


Today was a challenge for me. I am the type of person that eats pretty much at the same time every day. On this day, it was so busy at work that the whole team did not eat lunch. At breakfast, I ate just a yogurt, a banana with some hot tea.

Due to the pandemic, in preparation, my organization is having the employees come back slowly until fully staffed.

By 2:30 pm, I began to feel light-headed, foggy, with a whopping headache. It felt like my eyeballs were going to pop out at any minute, and I was getting hangry!  It was like I was the hungry diva on that Snickers commercial, the one where the person is so hungry, they act like a famous personality but are everyday individuals that skipped a meal. I haven’t felt this way in a long time, it was horrible!

At 3:00 pm, it got worse. Don’t worry, I kept my composure, but it was tough. I think my boss took pity on us and she said we could go home since we did not have lunch. I took her up on it in a heartbeat!

By the time I left work, I was on a desperate to eat mode, so I stopped to buy food at a Spanish restaurant to take home, crazy!

Remember the Snickers commercial, I mentioned previously? Avoid turning into a diva!
