The food. The agony

So I'm staying at my moms right now because I've got some kinda job interview, working experience,whatever thing tomorrow morning at a small company here in her city.I love my mom but don't you just hate the steroetypical sentences you get from them?
  1.  "You're too thin,you need some meat on those bones!",
  2. "Soooo...how are things with the ladies..met someone?",
  3. "You're not eating much huh? Do you dislike my cooking?"
  4. "You used to eat way more than that and now you don't even want a second helping?"

She made breaded lamb chops with mashed potatoes,peas and carrots...really delicious but simply too much food for me to handle..I'm talking about mountains of food in front of you....and thats just the first helping she wants you to eat...I had a really hard time getting her to understand that I don't need that much food to feel stuffed because I'm not growing anymore.Well it' about 11:30PM now and I'm turning in for tonight..gotta get out into the cold early and hopfully arrive on time..nothing beats a good first impression or so I'm told.

I really hope you get the (if you actually want it) or at least find a way to get outta there. Living with parents sucks.

Luckily my mother never encourages me to eat like that. Despite the fact that she has always cooked for 8 people in a 4 person family.

Its not like that when I'm at home, I only get penguins to eat.

Haha, yeah man.

I used to be able to just gorge myself on mountains of food. Nowadays, I just have a laughably small apetite.
