Your typical late-December internal monologue 

Lizard Brain: “The body feels bad, why? A cookie will probably help.” 

Thinking Brain: “That bad feeling is menstrual cramps, not hunger. Take some ibuprofen. Cookies taste good at first but end up making us feel crappy and sad later.”

Lizard Brain: “Oh yeah, ibuprofen. Cool. But also probably a cookie.”

Thinking Brain: “How about some water? Cookies will make us feel more tired. It’s 9am for heaven sake. We had a big, healthy breakfast and are not feeling hungry at all.”

Lizard Brain: “Water and three cookies? On it.”
