the tv was on as i was puttering around the house Sunday night…
as it always is.
it’s either sara these days or just some mind numbing tv.
and so sunday night…tv it was. (holy shocker i know!)
i was getting my outfit ready for work…i was in the bedroom
and from the main room i hear something about a woman eating chalk
well…how can i resist some chalk eating tv goodness???
the channel was on TLC…i think Hoarders was on before that…
anyways i came out to the main room…and no, my ears were not playing tricks on me
this woman was addicted to eating chalk.
she was just standing there with this big ass piece of chalk…taking a chomp here and there
well…wasn’t i hooked
i sat and watched and a huge part of me wondered if this shit was for real!!! could it be??
i gotta tell ya…it cheered me up.
but this post isn’t even about chalk eating
it’s about the show that came on right after it…i could have sworn it was called “Food Freaks” but i have looked everywhere on line, to no avail
it’s as if it didn’t exist.
if my friend at work hadn’t watched the exact same episode…i would have second guessed myself.
anyways there were two people on it…
the first one, a woman…has been eating fries for about 28-30 yrs (can’t remember the exact #)
but i do know she has been eating fries since she was 3.
no biggie right? we all eat fries i’m sure
but this woman has only eaten fries for the past 28-30 yrs. every.single.meal
deep fried McCain fries. also, if the ends were burnt she would pick those off and put them under a paper towel.
she never ate anything else.
long story short, they did some sort of DNA testing and they found an extremely rare gene in her that caused her to do this
something about texture of food and no tolerance for others
something crazy like that.
she almost hurled eating a carrot. all she wanted was french fries every single meal of her life
is this for real???
the next one was about a guy who only ate pizza
every day…every single meal
it was something crazy like 498 pizzas a year or something like that
for 10 years.
he didn’t want anything else.
i became distracted during that episode but i think that the therapists “cured” him.
at the end it showed him actually ordering something other than pizza at a restaurant.
these people make me feel worlds better about my weird food issues
i thought my food autism was bad???
i am as normal as normal can get!!
does anyone know what the hell i am talking about?
if you know what show i am talking about tell me already!!!
on to better and much more important things…
have you seen my girl do this?
