Not About Food

Slow but sure

I love to 'savor the flavor' so, consequently, I eat rather slowly whereas others at the table seem to snarf their food so quickly in comparison. At home, it doesn't bother me that I wind up still eating when others have finished but if I'm out with other family members or friends, either at their home or a restaurant, I get embarrassed when they've finished and I'm still stuffing it down. Usually I'll try to speed it up or just not finish what's on my plate. What do you folks do if you're the fast or slow eater?
