..and I thought about last summers theatre. There was a break in it and before that I (or my character) told people that it was time for a break and I would go to the kitchen to have a snack and invited them to do the same in the café. After a while my colleauges in the group said that our coffee shop did not sell enough, I would hve to eat something...I did not believe them but obediently did some magic and produced a muffins from our magic cupboard and took a bite in it an at the same time told the audience that it was time for a break. The first time I did this our sales in the coffee shop more than doubled. I could not believe it, thought it was a coincidence but coninued to take a bite in a muffins before I said it was time to take a break - and the sales continued.

In the link above the author speaks aout a flight where a text with "Chew - eat up" is displayed for the passenger and later the flight stewardesses offers snacks.

I our case it was not enoguh with me advicing people to have a snack in the break, it was me taking a bite from that muffins thad made the difference...weird.

But needless to say - in this years play we take that bite before the break right from the first night...

    Fascinating! In my language we have a saying 'zien eten doet eten' (to watch someone eat will make a person eat). Thanks for sharing. What was that like for you to have to take a bite of a muffin for such a reason?

    nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn-Can you tell Xena just visited my keyboard for some attention? The hardest thing for me with company all weekend is there seems to be a constant focus on food and the next meal when I work really hard to focus on other things. Not a lot of physically active activity going on. Loving my early morning alone time; but enjoying the family time too.
