(Type of post: Non funny. Self discovery types!)
I must admit this one's been inspired by Bullshee's latest post! But here's my interpretation of the title!
1. I'm Food-a-holic. That I'm choc-aholic has been established for many years now but off late I've decided it's time to face up to the fact that food is the first love of my life! People says there's nothing like the look on my face when I bite into a sumptiously, sinful, chocolate dessert (the mouth's watering already!). What brings this passion to life is the incident of when I'd joined my company. They went around the room asking people to introduce themselves. "I'm ABC and I like sports." "I'm XYZ and I like to paint". "I'm Zee and I like to eat". Yup, the words flew out innocently without a second thought! After a stunned minute of silence where the unanimous thought seemed to be "Groan! Have we really recruited this dimwit?", someone politely said "Err...then this is the right place to be. We are a snacks company after all"
2. Now the 2nd interpretation of the title. I need to desperately food- lighten myself. I eat too much. I have this tendancy to put all the fattening stuff on the menu onto my plate and then feel much obliged to leave no need for anyone to clean up. Now I'm much above my college weight, battling with my trousers every single morning and too lazy to move my butt and exercise. Before I know it I'll be a dead elephant! Actually, more immediately, I don't want people pointing out to me at my friend's wedding and saying "Us moti wali dost ke kapde to dekho"
3. My Sunday mornings are marked by viewership of all the cooking shows on various channels!! Kylie Kwong, Angela's Kitchen, Khana Khazana, the Foodie are as much a part of my household as are Kyunki Saans, Saat Phere (Ruchi, this one esp for you) and My Family (Recently discovered most hilarious show on BBC entertainment, weekdays 8:30pm- channel 205 on Tata Sky- Life Jinga-lala types). Back to the topic, I was food-lightened by the fact that the format of cook shows have changed. From cooking in the kitchen to traveling the world and learning the history, living the life and cooking the food. This is what I want to do! This is exactly what I want to do with my life....
