Someone told me “You can tell how patient a person is or is not by observing the pace at which they eat their food.” I guess that means I’m impatient as hell because I don’t even eat my food, I inhale it.
Maybe there’s some truth to this. Because I eat slow as hell (and I don’t even try to). But I’m always the last one at the table to finish.
And I am considered a patient individual.
I can get with this.
As long as it’s the right man.
