The Secret

Have you ever been out for a fancy meal or dinner with friends only to still be hungry afterwards? It happens to me all the time. I go out for dinner and am still starving afterwards but don't want to cause a scene or look like pig by ordering a second meal. So I sit there and say it was delicious and then open the fridge as soon as I get home. Well, I have discovered the solution to this problem...

Small children. That's right, just take small children with you. Why?, you may ask... The children need to eat, so you order them meal, the bigger the better (for you). But the children are small an easily distracted, so there is no way that they are going to finish their entire meal. This leaves you to do the right thing; not waste the food and get basically a second meal to yourself!!

There are a couple of things that you need to consider when using this tactic...

*The smaller the children, the better. It means they won't eat as much and there will be more left over.

*Accidentally order something they don't like. Again, there will be more left over!

*Act like you are eating it because you don't want to waste the food so people don't see through your cunning plan. 

*Its best not to have your own children solely for this purpose. Apparently, the number of sacrifices you need to make as a parent far outnumber the number of times you get extra food. 

*This method can also be used for dessert. 

*Always wait until the children have finished eating. Otherwise it just looks like you are stealing their food. 

It's as easy as taking candy from a baby!

  1. I sort of concur here Chris, quite often I end up hungary after a night out at the Caf. I just dont understand the rational of dining with small children (I'm pretty sure you dont have any of your own)to make sure you recieve your fill! I have always found Hungary Jacks on the way home a viable option!
