“Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.”
― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
For me lunchtime always did seem to go by at a faster rate than the rest of the day, especially when I was in school and often spent the entire lunch period waiting in a line to get my lunch and ended up having to inhale it Garfield-style after the bell had already rung. Even now it seems that the time one wants to spend in quiet and relaxation, savouring one's food, rushes by faster than all of that time spent chasing toddlers or stocking shelves or whatever it is that you do for a living. Time flies when you're having fun, but it also flies when you're just trying to eat.
