To All the Things I've Had to Eat

To the thoughtfully chosen and consumed apples, oranges, and bananas.

To the candy and candy-flavored protein bars before bed, a childhood dream that doesn't quite live up to the hype.

To the midnight Lara bars, to the mid-hike glucose gels.

To the snacks of slightly concerned friends, to the bear bags and canisters of more concerned friends.

To the juice, apple cider, fruit punch, pouches, boxes, cups.

To the good choices, carefully measured out tablets and singular pieces of dried fruit.

To the choices that lead to roller coasters of emotions and exhaustion, like cups and bowls of granola or ice cream.

To the second dinners, breakfasts, and unscheduled snacks.

I think it might be fair to say that I've hated you all.
