The Big Red Snacks Button

Big Red Snacks Button Karin LaRonde, as I’ve discussed here before, runs a business in Charlottetown that delivers healthy meals for lunch.

Steven and Daniel and I were talking just now, on the way back from the Formosa, about how what we really need is a healthy snacks delivery service that would bring much needed sustenance during the 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. post-lunch, pre-dinner catatonia period.

This period, characterized by the dueling inability to make practical decisions and extreme need for food and beverage, is where a no-decisions-required emergency snack delivery service would come in very handy.

Steven and I both realized that our reaction to this catatonia period right now is either to consume unhealthy panic-driven snacks obtained in a mindless rush for food or, more commonly, to simply push on through, thus creating unnecessary levels of snarkiness, inefficiency, and thoughtlessness that often ripple on to affect our ability to eat a proper supper.

We envision a Big Red Button in ones office that, if pressed, would simply cause appropriate provisions to be delivered.

We agreed that we would be willing to pay heartily for this service immediately.

This is a business opportunity waiting for an enterprising person.

There is no doubt that Three O’clock is “Snack O’clock”, but I think the *last* thing a sedentary computer programmer needs is snacks of any kind delivered to them. I would personally suggest moving about to obtain healthy snacks.

This is nice in theory. The problem, however, is that (at least for me), the nature of the snacklessness is such that I am actually incapable of doing this. It’s not a physical thing: it’s more like a disabling mania.

I’ve thought about filling the fridge with treats, but apathy and laziness have gotten in the way.

I am passing this extreme need onto to Hope in the hope that she may be able to help
