My love for food is likely what contributes most to my rather roundish shape. Food is a wonderful thing, and we were blessed with bodies designed to not only need food, but also designed to enjoy food. To taste it, smell it, & savor it.
Food gives me time to enjoy the company of my family and friends. I don't belive the social aspects of breaking bread together are anything new, or unique to our modern world. I'm pretty sure that long, long, ago Oggetta and Hagar sat down in the opening of their cave, gathered their friends, and tore into the flesh of a wooly mammoth together.
