I iz NO satisfied :(

As you can see by the frustration on the title of this post, I can't think straight. Or couldn't think straight at the time.

Yesterday, I woke up at around two-thirty pm. Pretty late, I know. I went downstairs to have some food, but my parents didn't end up being home. Now remember, yesterday was 'Shabe-baraat' which is a special day for us Muslims; its when our future income/food etc is decided by God for the following year. On this day, we pray a lot, and have 'Halwa' which is a really nice sweet dish.

Anyway, my parents weren't home, so I decided to have breakfast at two-thirty pm instead, and continued watching TV and being lazy with my daily routine. My parents ended up getting home at five pm, and at the time, I was exorbitantly hungry. I complained to them that I had nothing to eat; NOTHING. All they said now was to wait till dinner. I accepted. I knew it was 'Shabe-Baraat' so there would be something intriguing on the menu tonight.


And mind you, I am a person with a HUGE appetite. Dont really know where it all goes, but I eat like a cow bull. So anyway, I waited patiently, and at six-thirty pm, my stomach felt like it was going to shrink to nothingness. At that time, we had to go to the graveyard to visit my grandfather's grave, and then to the mosque to pray Maghrib, which we did. After Maghrib, we prayed to God for our future, and then, it was FINALLY FOOD TIME. At this point, I was the epitome of hunger.

WE WANT FOOD. WE WANT FOOD. It was just me but... you get the point.

So, finally, when I sat on the table, thinking that I would see something like this:

I see this instead:


At that point, I was so hungry, I could eat anything. Even Paalak (Spinach), which I HATE. I never eat vegetables except for cucumbers, carrots, Lady Fingers and potatoes. Besides the fantastic four, I dont eat ANY vegetables. Especially spinach... and I dont like qeema either.

I had the food, my hunger was over, but I WAS NOT SATISFIED. It was like having warm water. Your water needs are fulfilled and your thirst is quenched, sort of, but you dont feel satisfied at ALL D:

Now, look at the irony. I'm fasting today.

This ever happen to any of you? Let me know in the comments :)

Well, usually I check what my mom's cooking before I decide to be hungry. Like, if I can smell paneer and thiyal(south indian dish) and biryani, I "fast" from breakfast so I can fully enjoy the meal.
But if my mom's making chicken curry which I hate I stock up on oreos and say innocently, "I'm so full."

WHY IS EVERYONE FASTING?? Ramadan starts in August! I don't get it! I'm not fasting right now...should I be? Are fasting times different in America than Pakistan? Whaaaa...? I IZ CONFUSED.

But on the post:
BAHAHAHAH! BAHAHA! HAHAHAH! PUAHAH!!! Dude, you make me laugh. This happens to me every freaking day. I come home and I smell something good like daal poori...and then I realize it's coming from the neighbors house. -__-

Guy From Karachi said...

@Ezazi: I knew about tomatoes :D
Ok :D

@Anas: Hahaha :P Well, still cant be as bad if youre not fasting :P
Thanks :P

@Eeshie: It was for 'Shabe-Baraat' which is an optional fast, that many people do :P So dont worry.

Nostalgic said...

Been there, Suffered it. So, i can understand how you must have felt :)

bengalimishtiz said... made me laugh xD
Hope your gastronomic desires are satisfied as of now.

PurpleMist. said...

YES this happens to me all the time! AND IT SUCKSSSS.
It usually happens when I'm in college from 9 a.m to 6p.m (I don't get to eat a proper lunch there), the ride home is long so I get home at around 7- starved, and looking forward to finally eating something. Then I see some crappy food n the table and my heart sinks :P
But then again, I guess we should be grateful and whatnot, that we have food to eat while many others don't :)

Guy From Karachi said...

@Nostalgic: Haha. Yeah, it sucks!

@bengalimishtiz: Haha im glad :D THEY ARE :D

Meh, thats what they all say :P I dont really care.
