Slow or Fast Eater?

Just wonder'n. Got any stories? I'm slow, too slow. 1/2 a sammich and maybe 1/2 the onion rings when everyone else is done(ie. Applebee's).

Are you first? Last? Avg?

Tired of be'n rushed? Tired of wait'n?

Just curious.

Slower than SO (she's always waiting for me to finish) and most other folks.

I'm usually the last one finished. I don't think I eat particularly slowly. I think most people just eat too fast.

i like to savor the food. people that gulp their food apparently don't. i am usually still preparing my plate while the others are finished or at least half finished

I am slow, maily because I have to take meds that cause me to feel full, They neutralize the protien I have to take in per meal. So while family sit and ttwiddle I'm still forcing down my meal.

I think most members of my family eat too fast. When we eat out, dh is finished so far ahead of me, but I think he does that so he can eat some of my food. They usually give me too much anyway.

i tend to eat quickly when i'm alone, especially at home. usually there's no time, so i just wolf down whatever's in front of me.

but i slow down a lot when i eat with family or friends, especially when dining out. i guess it's an attempt to enjoy the food and company.

my Lord, i'm so slow while dining on my food-
that's me, though, i adore my food, yet i wanna appreciate my dinner, rather that eat so quickly that my stomach is so queasy that i gripe for most of the evening. (JAKE).
i'm a born slow-poke. in many, many ways. that's me.
at school, my recent Chef would glance @ the clock after presentation, allot us a few for dining on the foods we'd cooked before cleaning the classroom, then get so embittered when i took a portion i, myself, as a 29-year-old adult, saw as fit for me, rather than taking half the dagnabbin platter of food.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
