I am actually not generally a messy eater.
For many years, my partner objected to eating in front of the TV so we always ate at this huge dining table.
When we split the first thing I did was eat while watching TV in a comfortable chair!
I am probably a bit messier since then as it is not quite so easy to eat on your lap however over the years, I have got used to it and spill very little and even play games on my i pad while eating lunch!
Can I just say . . . isn't that what b00bs are for . . . . . catching food??? LOL. It's usually a race to see who ruins their clothes first!! My son in law and myself are chronic food spillers. I always know the exact spot to pre-treat my tops before washing if I have eaten in them.
It depends what you mean by ' messy '. My husband seems to think so, and says he cant take me anywhere. I seem to get drops down the front of my shirt no matter what I eat. It's usually only one drop, but he notices it. My breasts catch it every time. They act like a natural bib and catch everything that falls down my front.
I don't think I am, I mean I may have little spills.
Working in the retail I have seen some messy eaters worse than kids,actually some people eat like pigs, I don't know how they make such a mess, or it may be they know they don't have to clean it up.
No, I am a fairly restrained eater! But then, I do only put small amounts of food into my mouth at any time, rather than overfill my spoons and forks!! I find that, as per Murphy's Law, if I am wearing white or something very special, the chances that I shall spill food, increase!!!
I always prefer to use a napkin to protect my clothes and wipe my mouth when eating. I frequently change my clothes before cooking if I have been handling the animals or doing dirty work. The likely hood of spilling food on my clothes when eating seems to be highest when I have just put on a clean white top.
