Now there are no particular rules, only that you have to eat something every hour. School teachers are not allowed to keep students from eating; they could even participate themselves. And, no, breath mints and gum do not count.
Scoff, Slop, ‘n Swallow day is significant and special to me because it is my day, that’s right; I created it. I have yet to experience the wondrous feeling of eating each hour with no teacher or anything to get in my way, though. And since the thought, ‘I’m hungry’ is on my mind most often, this day is going to be great.
I asked my dad what he thought of eating each hour for a whole day, and his response was, “Popcorn. Either that or the Christmas sugar cookies,” but he definitely thought he could do it.
As I said in the first paragraph, get out of the closet all you who are hungry and eat! Some people out in the world can’t eat, not because they don’t even have a closet, but because they don’t have food. Remember reading about wildfires and hearing about tornados, and all the kids in foreign countries starving? Think of all the children and families who don’t have a home; they have no clothes but the ones on their back; they have no money, and they have no food. While we’re eating all day, some people aren’t eating anything in a day, maybe even more than a day. We can still eat all day, but do something about those who can’t eat – give money to a charity, donate food to food shelters, and more.
So on December 8, let’s eat. And let’s remember and do something about those who can’t.
