hunger

I'm really hungry. And I've realized that in a world that can feel so very fake sometimes, hunger is definitely a very real sensation. It's kind of an interesting feeling. I think I'm gonna run with it for a while.

I was thinking to myself as I started contemplating the matter that if I experienced hunger for a while maybe I could understand better how millions (or more likely even billions) of people on this planet feel all the time. But it's not true at all. I still have a kitchen full of food at my disposal. I can choose to eat any time. And I really doubt that some poor starving person somewhere would think "oh yay! some middle-class white american boy is gonna go hungry for a while so he can feel what it's like to be me! god bless him." I'm such a poser.
