Fleish-itis

I am pretty sure there is no worse feeling in the world than that which you experience in the following scenario:

You come home from a long day at work. You had overslept in the morning, and didn't have time to pack lunch. There was something you had to finish, so you couldn't go on your lunch break to buy food. In short, you're starving.
You get home, and ravenously begin to look for signs of supper being made. Nothing. You look in the fridge, and all you see is a quarter of a piece of schnitzel from last night. Left with little choice, you grab it and devour it in two seconds flat. Looking around for more, you are forced to come to terms with the horrible realization that there is simply nothing else. It's right around then that you hear the front door opening. You peek your head out of the kitchen just in time to see your mother waltzing through the door, holding her prize: a steaming hot pie of pizza.

Picture yourself in that scenario. Now tell me, isn't it true? There is no worse feeling in the ENTIRE world, huh?

inkstainedhands said...

I wouldn't know... I don't eat meat. :]

even worse is when you're with a friend and you say "oh shoots i gotta wait six hours till i can eat the pizza" and she says to you: "o i only wait three so i can eat in a few minutes!!"

EsPes said...

i try to avoid eating meat during the week because most of the good snacks are dairy!

Inspired said...

OMG, that's terrible!

nmf #7 said...

So true. What about the fear of washing! That's another itis.

halfshared said...

I thought that the worst thing that can happen to you is your phone dying. Is this the new worst thing :-D?

chanie said...

Thus the reason why I don't like eating meat in the middle of the week....
But worse is definitely when your friend keeps three hours and you keep six.

MAK said...

oh yeah, that is SO annoying, and like everyone else said, that's why I stay away from meat during the week. I had a friend that only kept three hours, but then after her bat mitzvah she started keeping 6, so it wasn't as bad anymore. I now had someone to share the misery with.

MIM- you bet. And I would say there is a correlation here. The better the milchigs, the worse the pain of the fleish-eitis, no?

ISH- No way! Seriously? Oh my I would so not manage such a diet! Well, I don't either eat meat, but I live on chicken. :-)

Anon- Yep! Cept I only wait 5, so I guess I shouldn't be complaining.

EP- Oh not me. Dairy is breakfast and sometimes lunch. Though me and a friend have this running joke where we keep ourselves milchigs just so we can go out for ice cream...

Insp- actually, when I posted that it had just happened the other way. I made chicken for my family for supper but I didn't eat any...then I made myself grilled cheese. It smelled so good... :-D

NMF- tis true. But it's not as bad, cuz it's not permanent...

HS- that is The. Worst. Thing. Possible. that can happen to a person. This is just a lousy feeling. Ever experienced it?

Chanie, actually I would say worst is when you wait 3 hours, then get married to a guy that waits six...I know a girl that had that.

MAK- I can't believe there are so many of you. I would say 98% of my suppers are chicken. Then again, I can't touch fish, and I think I have a slight lactose intolerance, plus pasta and stuff is too carby for my body...I always get super high blood sugar when I eat it. Oh, and I am on a diet. ;-)

chanie said...

LOL, true- that's probably the worst. My cousin had that too...
But luckily we both wait six, so no problem there...

Inspired said...

Yum, I'm hungry

harry-er than them all said...

ahh the joys of waiting 3 hours. by the time i'm hungry again, i'm milchigs.

Something Different said...

Chan- (you don't mind if I call you that, do you?;) See what I mean, one track minded! :-D

Insp-me too! :-D

HTTA- That ought to make you really desirable in shidduchim, no? :-p
Whoever you marry will get to wait 3 hours too!

harry-er than them all said...

surprisingly enough, no girl thought that was enough of a reason. lol.

i actually had someone say no to me cause of that (the yekke part, not the 3 hours)

Frayda said...

It's ok. You shouldn't eat the pizza anyway. It's bad for your diabetes :)

Something Different said...

HTTA- Obviously you havent been introduced to the right kinda girls. Hello? This should be a priority!

Something Different said...

Freyda- I sincerely hope you were kidding. People with type 1 diabetes can eat whatever they please. That being said, mostly my fleishitis is a matter of being fleishig when a friend calls and offers me to go out with her for ice cream. (Fat free sugar free...lol)

chanie said...

SD- you said "Chanie, actually I would say worst is when you wait 3 hours, then get married to a guy that waits six...I know a girl that had that."SO I said that my cousin had that issue as well, but we both wait six! That's called responding to the subject at hand, not being one-track minded.

Something Different said...

Chanie- that was a joke. I sincerely hope I didn't offend you. :-)

chanie said...

Ah, I see. No, don't worry, you didn't offend me. :) (Ah, and I don't mind "Chan".)

Something Different said...

Chan- awesome and awesome! :-)

chanie said...

:) Glad to hear it.
