There was this one time in college where I ate my feelings…
It was Valentines Day 2007. I was living in the middle of no where Idaho and it was negative 20 outside, I lived in the dorms, and I was single. Boo.
I’m sure that being single had nothing to do with the fact that the freezing weather had me eating on a every 20 minute basis in order to add some fat to my body to keep me warm…Or maybe it was because my roommates and I spent our weekends playing dress up and taking ‘we think we are so sexy’ pictures.
More like ‘never ever take pictures like that again in your life’ pictures.
So on that cold day in February, I had this bright Idea to make a chocolate cake. I’m pretty sure I made it straight from a box along with chocolate store bought frosting. What I remember the most though was buying a cake decorating gel tube that you could write on the cake with. After the cake was cooked and frosted, I took that pink died gel goop and wrote across the whole cake, “FEELINGS.”
It was a clever way of saying, “Tonight Ladies, we will eat out FEELINGS!”
Skip to almost 6 plus years later, and I still refer to rich chocolate comfort food as Feelings Food. Because sometimes, when the day is hard and trash TV and a run on the treadmill aren’t doing it for you…
Sometimes ‘eating your Feelings‘ is the only solution.
