2014 -- week 25 of #projectlife -- my triumph at hot dog eating!



any time my family reminisces about the good old days, inevitably my step father will bring up the fact that i was the slowest eater on the face of the planet. he'll get all worked up and tell you how the whole family would sit for an additional ten, fifteen, thirty minutes while i leisurely ate my meal, totally oblivious of them staring at me, waiting for me to finish. (every time we talk about this, my crime of slow eating seems to get more and more egregious; i'm sure it wasn't that bad. maybe.) but times have changed. i am still the slower eater in the bodanzalez household, obviously, but i've made a lot of improvements since the never ending dinners of 1994. like this week, when i sat down, with a friend, and ate 6 hot dogs in 10 minutes. that is, of course, no where near as impressive as 65 hot dogs in 10 minutes, but it's pretty impressive for me. i totally get why people dunk their hot dogs and buns now, it's exhausting have to chew so much and so quickly. however, i will always eat my hot dogs with ketchup, mustard, and relish.

ps. i tied and came in 3rd place for the night!
