Snacking and gaming. Two things that go together like roasted red peppers and every sandwich I ever make. We all do it. You're sitting there playing an extended session of Civ or Skyrim or whatever and suddenly you get the uncontrollable urge to waddle to the kitchen and see what riches may be in store. You open the fridge and see a tupperware container that you don't remember ever even owning with some unidentifiable sludge inside it just chilling in the back right corner. You see some hot dogs perhaps, or if you're lucky even a couple slices of (mostly) fresh pizza in a ziploc bag on top of a half empty sleeve of bacon.
Nah I don't want to go through a whole ritual to make my snack and I'm really just looking for something quick and easy. You open the cupboard in search of further options when you spy a bag of Cheetos sitting smugly between a jar of peanut butter and a small bag of flour you bought a while ago with the noble goal of making cookies.
Perfect. Cheetos! That cheesy MSG-filled snack. Then it occurs to you: "If I pour out a bowl of these and start tearing into them I will invariably get cheesy dust all over my keyboard/controller" What do you do?
I found an answer to this not long ago. I rummaged through my cutlery drawer and found a small two pronged fork that I never used for anything else. Now I sit happily at my desk with a bowl of cheetos and my cheeto fork and allow my hunger to be satiated and my keyboard to remain (mostly) pristine.
So my question to all of you is have you found yourself adapting how you snack or what you snack on in order to have it be compatible with how you game? Have you been changing your taste in snacks to accommodate? For instance I've become a fan of sunflower seeds because all I need is the bag and a bowl for the empty seeds. No fork required.
Just a query from a bored guy.
