There is one thing I have learned when traveling with BFF over the years….you have got to feed her. For reals. Otherwise she gets hangry. Do you know what hangry is? It is when you get hungry and then you get angry and then you snip and snap and are hangry. It truly is a fine line. One minute you are fine and the next…boom….hangry. Nasty things can be said in this state of being hangry. Take a look at this nice Venn diagram…I love Venn diagrams. I feel like these can explain just about anything and so simply.
BFF and I like to eat and usually we are very aware when one of us is getting hangry or needs to eat. For some reason, on this last trip to DL, I was unable to tell that BFF needed to be fed. Poor BFF.
We went on our usual Halloween trip and BFFE and her family came with us again like they did 2 years ago after my baby box was ripped from my body. This year, it was unseasonably hot. I mean it was in the 90’s most days. BFF and I ended up wearing tank tops and capris and didn’t even touch our jackets. Usually, it is t-shirt and jeans with hoodies. I would have died of heat stroke if I had worn that this time around. There is something you should know about BFFE….she is a super FAST walker. Like faster than BFF (if that is possible). I am more like Baymax from Big Hero 6….I am not fast. I am sure it is cuz my fat slows me down. Fat Girls just are not fast. There is always a lot of walking when we are there, but we walked on average of 13 miles a day this time! A half marathon each day! It was crazy. I felt like all we did was walk back and forth between parks…..we did not plan well to say the least. We also did not plan meals very well besides those that we had reservations for. That was the mistake.
On one day, we ate a nice breakfast and then got started in the park. It was like Lord of the Rings (or Lord of the Walking as I call it) were they walk and walk and walk and walk and walk…..you get the picture. I mean we ended up walking 55 miles this trip. Almost as much as the 3 day event. I think we might have stopped for churros at one point…because churros. Not quite sure what it is, but the churros at DL are some of the best around. Maybe they are sprinkled with pixie dust or something but dang…they are delicious. But I know we didn’t have lunch that day. Mistake #2. The heat and the lack of food made all of us a crabby or in BFF’s case hangry and yet we kept walking. Snipping a little at each other and having fun, but hangry. I didn’t notice the signs and I should have.
It got to be late in the evening and we decided to finally stop walking and grab some dinner. I was relieved because I was starving. A Fat Girl has got to eat. I mean, I don’t keep up my shapely figure by not eating. Just saying. And I love to eat at DL. Plus, my body hurt so bad and I really needed to sit. So, I ordered BFF and I a couple of burgers and fries (onion rings for me). We sat and started eating. I was so busy savoring my burger that I didn’t look up or talk for awhile and I noticed BFF did not either. When I finally did look up, BFF was literally shoveling fries into her gob as fast as she could. Like she had been a POW in a camp somewhere and had just gotten out and been given a meal. I don’t think I have ever seen her eat so fast (except for the Popcorn Incident of 2015 where she slapped my hand out of the bucket) and you would think she was never going to get another meal again. I started laughing uncontrollably as did BFFE’s Hubby. We could not help it. BFF looked up at me and stated “You HAVE to feed me!!!” I am sorry my dear BFF….you are right. I do need to feed you. Here is evidence of how tired and hangry we had been….these snapchat videos are hysterical (and you SHOULD be following me there —->ladymiryaa)
So there you have it….don’t let BFF get hangry and if you do, by all means gie her fries. She likes them. I adore her. Consider this your Fat Girl PSA of the day.
Oh yeah. I didn’t die today. I did walk enough miles to walk a half marathon every day we were there and mistakenly let BFF get hangry but I didn’t die. I am Fat Girl with a BFF who likes fries Running. The experiment continues….
