Eating food in bed.

I hear about people eating food in bed. Breakfast, crackers,etc.... I choose not to.Do like to eat or snack in bed? With the exemption of being bedridden.

  1. Never.

    And I really do mean never. We live in a tropical country. Ants abound. We don't need them in bed. :)

    1. Crumbs and bed don't mix in my opinion but I know some people enjoy it.

      1. I never eat in bed.

        But this reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George is "having relations" with a woman and eating a pastrami sandwich at the same time.

          It's the most sensual of all the cured meats.

        2. No. For good sleep hygiene, your bed should be reserved strictly for sleep and sex. :)

            One of my doctors got after me for reading in bed when I said I had a hard time sleeping. Before my fiance and I moved in together, I was pretty good about not reading or watching movies or playing games in bed.

            He is used to a) having the tv/a movie on while he goes to sleep, and b) eating in bed. It's been an interesting battle. We don't have a tv in the room, but we end up watching movies on my laptop every night.

              I'm a sleep hygiene freak. I've had my bouts of insomnia, but keeping certain habits helps. Having a meal in bed would just totally rock the boat.

            2. Some mornings I will crawl back into bed with a cup of coffee and a scone or something.
              I usually get in trouble for it, and when I find crumbs on my side it is annoying to even me!

              I don't recommend it, although at the time I am enjoying the indulgence.
