One of my super-abilities is the ability to take a nap just about any time, any place. I tap in to this when I travel: I get on the plane, doze off -- and magically arrive at my destination.
Unfortunately, I also tend to do this in the car -- which means I don't know where anything is in town, because my wife does most of the driving (hometown girl!). Despite having lived here for ten years.
My other super-ability is having a pretty big gap between satiation (i.e. ''I'm no longer hungry'') and being actually **full**.
For example: Today my co-workers and I went out to lunch at a Japanese place. I ordered the udon noodles and beef -- basically, a fairly large bowl o' noodle soup. When the server delivered it to my end of the table, she also gave me a large bowl of rice with teriyaki beef on top. ''Wow,'' I thought to myself. ''I didn't know that it came with rice. That's a good value for money.''
Since the soup was kinda hot, I started in on the rice and teriyaki. I was about halfway through when I overheard my colleague, at the other end of the table, comment that her order of teriyaki rice had never arrived. Oops.
I apologized, and said that I thought it had just been part of my meal. She said that was fine: the server has assumed that it was their error, and was bringing out a replacement.
After I finished the teriyaki rice, I wasn't hungry any more. But neither was I **full**. So I turned to my noodle soup -- a complete ''lunch'' by itself. And I finished the whole thing.
And a can of orange soda.
And then that afternoon, at work, I was a bit peckish. So I had a few handfuls of cashews.
My co-workers at my old job sometimes wondered how I'm not the size of a house. The reason is that I don't eat like that **all** the time -- only at work, when there's leftover food that I think might go to waste.
Most of the time, I don't eat that much.
