This happened today (and many times before):
The thing is, I get hungry. Sometimes from one minute to the next. And I happen to live with a Slow Eater. We try not to food shame (or generally shame) each other, because that’s obviously not nice or healthy.
It’s just that… We’re both a bit surprised every time I manage to spray burrito filling all over myself and the furniture in a very short time, while Slow Eater hasn’t spilled a single crumb.
I guess burritos are difficult to eat for some people. And when I start making a mess, I feel like I might as well just continue down that road.
Fun facts about this comic:
#1: We don’t actually sit shoulder to shoulder and eat dinner like that. We obviously lounge at either end of the couch while watching YouTube, like proper grown-ups.
#2: Slow Eater doesn’t actually own a nice, red, woolly sweater, but I asked which colour he wanted to wear in the comic and he requested this – and now wants to get one IRL.
#3: Last month I drew another comic of me and my BF – you can check it out here: Duvet drama.
