But, they are completely justified because... they are feeding not just them, but the baby within'.
I have a friend who loved chili-cheese fries (Megan), some ladies prefer salty crackers, sweet candy or sour pickles.
My wife, Laura, lucky for me, hasn’t had too many cravings. I mean honestly, I have had more cravings than she has! I have about four needs... for food! My vice for ice, my yearning for lattes, cheezits and can we say, "I scream, you scream, we all scream..."
We were home just sitting in the kitchen and all of a sudden a look of both terror and delight was upon her gleaming face. It looked as if she had a feeling that she needed to have quenched, but was not sure how it would be done and it sent her into a trance of panic within her psyche.
I could tell she was thinking... "I want this, but how am I going to obtain it??? How will I convince Eric to go out with me to get it??? I need it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
“What’s wrong?” I asked ever-so politely.
“I finally got a craving,” said Laura.
“Oh wow,” I said. “What is it???”
“Cinnamon rolls…” she said, and continued. “and chicken salad!”
“Ewawhhhaaaa…” I said. “Are you sure?”
“Do you just wanna buy some chicken salad?” I asked.
“No, I wanna make it, but I need to call dad to see how to make it!”
So, after we picked everything up at the store, we went straight home and Laura started creating her masterpiece of a craving.
“I feel like Steve Carrell’s character on the forty year-old virgin.” She said. “What if people ask me what I did this weekend? I will have to say, well I had a craving for chicken salad, but noticed I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I had to go to the store and get the chicken and the mayonnaise, and the ecrutrameau (sp)”
