One day I was eating spaghetti when all of the sudden, i started sniffling and my eyes got very watery. I pushed my food around my plate and did not want to eat it because I was afraid that the spaghetti had once been alive and was now in pain when I ate it. I was hungry so in the end, I ended up crying harder as I ate my food and I apologized to the spaghetti after each bite and asked it to forgive me. T_T
