Women who Eat will Rule the World

17 Jan

Women who eat will rule the world because women who eat are hungry and they know it.  Women who eat do not confuse hunger with thirst, affection-deprivation or the need to declare war.

A woman who dives fiercely into an eggplant parm sub is a woman who would also jump fearlessly into the lion’s den, the principal’s office or the long line at DMV for you.

A woman who eats is sexy.  That eggplant sandwich is a meal that engages her senses completely- from the hot, melted cheese to the greasy, meaty eggplant.  And when her senses are engaged, when she is grunting and salivating and burning skin off the roof of her mouth, she is physically experiencing a sandwich in a way that makes you jealous.

Women who eat also do chores- because they have the energy to lift, and tote, and bale.  Besides, you do it wrong anyway.

A woman who enjoys eating also enjoys cooking. Fruit and yogurt, ham and cheese or scrambled eggs with toast will satisfy for only so long before you crave the spice and heat and texture that a woman who eats knows can be satiated with ginger miso soup made in minutes.

She won’t tell you how she makes it, or how she knows that you need it.  She will set it before you- teaming with delicate and exotic flavors and you will savor it while all the while pondering how you ever got this far without her.

And in the time it takes her to clear the table, you will realize that you can’t be without her or her appetite or how she sometimes forgets to breathe between bites.

Women who eat will rule the world, not with an iron fist, but with an iron skillet handed down by their mothers, seasoned by generations before.

    Beautifully fierce…or fiercely beautiful. Either way, this post rocks!

    I don’t know… I love the eating part (and now I want an eggplant sub, you described it so sensuously), but the cooking part not so much (unfortunately)! I won’t tell them how I make it because it came from a can…

    Great post, as usual!

    Well, I am not sure that I agree with your hypothesis. You should keep in mind that tyrants of both genders and eating habits eventually are opposed by the lean and hungry types regardless of weapons involved. Iron skillets–give us a break.

    Here’s to the ladies who lunch and the women who eat.
