Good morning! I’m so glad you’re here. I have to tell you, I’ve had a bit of a hard time adjusting to being a grownup after my week away. It’s tough being at a desk all day when you’re used to having a view like this, you know what I mean?
Now that I’m back, a couple of my favourite people are on vacations of their own, and I’m missing them like crazy. Last night I decided to do something about it, so after finishing my errands and getting a fabulous haircut, I treated myself to dinner out at one of my favourite restaurants.
(Just because I love the view doesn’t mean I don’t love being a city girl, too).
Once I got home, I thought about the effects a good meal can have on your mood, and I remembered something that my friend K had posted on my facebook wall, after our Maroon 5 concert was over and we were missing our beloved Adam Levine. Today’s word is kummerspeck: Excess weight gained from emotional overeating. Literally, grief bacon.
Nobody panic! I’m not at the “excess weight” stage yet. I’m pocket-sized; there’s only so much bacon I can eat. But I love this word!
What’s your favourite thing to eat your feelings with? Chocolate? Bacon? Chocolate-dipped bacon? Tell me all about it in the Comments! Then come back tomorrow and we’ll get Under the Covers. I can’t wait!
PS: K found kummerspeck and other oh-so-wordful words here.
