I know a Silly Eater. I may even know two. But I know one for sure. Let us examine.
Above shows Silly Eater's eating strategy.
If you have a bowl full of something, you need to transfer the food onto your table and spread it around. If that something in the bowl happens to be cereal, it's a good idea to transfer it to your table and back into the bowl several times if possible. Food just tastes better if it is transferred to other surfaces to pick up the tastes of those surfaces.
If there is something interesting on your knee during a meal, you need to check it out for at least twenty minutes. Losing focus on eating is important and this is just one way to do it.
Yup, I love the Silly Eater.
