Lose Your Lunch

Last week in the teacher's lounge, a few of us were swapping really gross stories - I forget exactly what about but it probably included poop. Even though I was eating, I was laughing up a storm.

It got me to thinking that nothing really grosses me out to the point that I lose my appetite (granted, that might change when I have kids someday, but for now it's true.)

But then I reached back far into the recesses of my memories and remembered ONE time where I lost my appetite... not even that night for dinner, but the next morning as well!

I was in seventh grade at the time, and some teacher had a brilliant idea to let us watch a particular movie in class. The movie they chose? Soylent Green

If you haven't seen it, then I won't ruin the ending for you - but let's just say that I never wanted to eat again.

What about you? What makes you lose your lunch?


  1. Wow, I've never heard of that movie and haven't really considered what makes me lose my lunch. But I will say if there's a gross smell around, I can lose my appetite....I was actually thinking how sometimes the smell of eggs makes me nauseous as I ate some this morning ;)

  2. I've never even heard of that movie...I'll have to check it out. takes a lot before I won't eat. The only thing I can think of is if I've been sick after I've eaten a particular food...then I don't want that again for a really, really long time!!

  3. Oh I loved this film!!
    I remember when I was in High School, one of my friends watched this movie and she told me I just had to watch it.
    I had forgotten all about it till about 2 years later when it was on Sci fi.
    I loved it!
    (albeit, completely freaked out! I couldn't believe what the soylent green was made of)
    I totally made my mum watch it and she loved it!
    I wish one of my teaches would have let us watch that in class!!
    However, I am sorry it made you lose your dinner + breakfast!!

  5. Loved the movie but yeah, kinda lost my appetite while watching it. Would love to talk to someone who took a date to dinner & movie when it was released.
