1,199 - Eating on the Run

April 15th, 2016

Episode 386 of 489 episodes

No time for a good lunch? Try eating some bad food instead! We’ll show you how on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:33 Explanations: 3:22 Fast dialog: 16:54 Sam: Wait a second. Is this all you’re having for lunch, this microwaved burrito? Leticia: That’s all I have time for. It’s better than just eating it out of the package, right? Sam: That does not look appetizing. I see indigestion in your future. Leticia: It’s filling and that’s all I care about. I need to gulp down something before the meeting at 1:00. Sam: Why don’t you brown bag it? Even if it’s something premade, you won’t have to rely on instant food. Leticia: Who has the time to prepare a lunch? This burrito is actually more than I eat on most days. Normally, I munch on candy bars or bags of chips and forgo lunch altogether. Sam: That’s not very healthy. Leticia: No, but it keeps me going when I’m on the run on busy days like this. I have a stash in my desk. Do you want to take a look? Sam: That collection makes fast food look like haute cuisine! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
