Grab a jar of Nutella from the cupboard, and a spoon from the drawer.Cartoon of a boy smiling and holding a jar of Nutella and a spoon.Put them on top of the modem and continue gaming.

When you can hear your tummy rumbling over the sounds in your headphones, take the jar off the modem and crack it open.Cartoon of a jar of nutella with a spoon on top, sitting on top of a modem.You now have a hot, high energy meal that your spoon will slide through like a bayonet through guts.

    • Heh heh. This is actually what my son does (heating it up on the modem so it’s gooey). But I remember spooning it out of the jar as a teenager too – just one more spoonful, then I’ll put the lid back on. Just one more…

  1. I felt a wave of belonging reading this, this is exactly what I do while I’m gaming (although I add a jar of smooth peanut butter next to the nutella for a near-Reese hit). And then I realised it was about your teenage son and I felt silly. But also a bit cool for being able to relate to a teenager…

    • It’s such a joyous feeling to find a kindred! I don’t think you should feel silly because it’s a teenager. I think it shows that amidst all the very grown-up stuff that you do, you’ve kept room for the pleasure and silliness that are too often lost in adulthood!

      I passed on your peanut butter tip, too. I’m sure it will get a taste test in our house this arvo!
