I attended a meeting the other day. As a rough estimate, there were about 40 or so people there. The professional gathering lasted just over 90 minutes. During the brief assembly a number of people snacked. This is a fit crowd and not a bunch of sedentary cubicle dwellers. Still, they munched. Some nibbled on some really smelly and random shit. Like did that bitch just pull out a salmon roll? When did eating every second of the day become appropriate? Barring some sort of specific health requirement, there isn’t any constructive reason to self-soothe through a meeting with food. I never heard of anyone dying of starvation from waiting a whole 90 minutes between meals. Furthermore because we care about manners here at Demeter Clarc, it’s rude to eat in front of others and not share. If you don’t have enough raspberries for the room, then put them away.
