And the Darwin Award goes to....

In order to follow my thought processes yesterday, I am writing this up in a blog. Herewith:
I was originally scheduled to do three kick-butt workouts last night. A power class, a groove/dance class, and then a 3-mile run with a group (see previous blog "I run!"). However, the opportunity to view not one, but TWO, films that are marked "Must See" at the SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) presented itself. I chose the films over the workout. My rationale was that since I was giving up all that exercise, I will skip dinner. I have had some success thanks to the great input from my people at the 2010 Un-Challenge in learning to live with hunger once in awhile. A couple of times lately I have been able to eat lightly and then just live with the hunger. Really FEEL what it's like to not be full. Use the time to think of less fortunate people who do this daily out of necessity, not choice.
So, during film #1 I successfully dealt with my hunger. Not a problem. Wonderful movie!!! I had hoped to get a nutritious snack in between films because I realized I really hadn't eaten much ALL DAY, let alone skipping dinner. However, the line for movie #2 was around the corner when I got out, so I just blew that off. Movie #2 began at 9:15 p.m. I ended up in the front row because of my location at the back of the line. About an hour in, I realized that I did not feel well. I was beyond hunger. I was sitting, but felt the need to lie down. OH NO! I'm on the front row! This crowd will stone me if I leave. No matter, I finally had to get up and walk up that long aisle out into the lobby where I fell onto a couch.
Someone brought me a banana.

After the cold sweat went away and the banana kicked in, I had just enough strength to get to my car and drive home to my
I'll never know how the movie ended (most likely it will never be released in the US).
