    Do you partake in this?

    This was a VERY heated discussion at the dinner table. Because for some reason my brothers think I'm kind of neurotic when it comes to it.. but just.. NO! NEVER! ICK! NO!
    The entire idea of it has just never sat well with me. Food stains.. crumbs.. food smells..just.. NO lol
    A lot of my friends eat in bed all the time and just think I'm frikin weird about it lol but my bed is a comfy lavender laundry smelling clean space reserved for sleeping, cuddling, tv watching and sex! Lol maybe I'm just compulsive about crumbs.

    So.. how do you feel about it?

    Personally, I eat at tables. Hell, I've even eaten on a tray on my lap on the FLOOR instead of getting on my bed with food lol

    I'll do it occasionally.

    I find it hilarious that you think eating is bed is grosser than sex in bed ;)

    I have come to terms with the fact that my issue is a neurotic one and not one based on logic.
    I have DOGS in bed as well (to be fair. I also am the kind of person that sprays/wipes down her dogs all the time) but STILL LOL

    There's just something about the feeling of crumbs that drives me bonkers.

    If it's something that won't get everywhere like popcorn I don't have a problem. But anything like chips, cookies, bread, anything with crumbs I don't.

    Even with 'clean' food I usually end up washing it that day anyway because paranoid me thinks she feels crumbs.

    Hannah eats in our bed all the time lol. Just like a granola bar or fruit snacks or something. Things with crumbs that are easily swiped off. I have a little tv and vcr/dvd player in the bedroom and sHe likes to watch her movies in there and it gives me a few moments to just sit and have quiet sO that is worth every crumb

    Yup, I do. Not like obsessively but my only place to watch TV is in my bedroom, and there is NO where else to sit. The other TV's are taken over by other family members at night. So yes if I want to eat something while watching a show or a movie, I will eat in bed. But it's not like full course meals or anything lol.

    I generally sit in my computer chair when watching tv, eating..I almost never lay in bed and watch tv or something. So it doesn't really apply since I'm not in bed unless I'm sleeping.

    We have a dinner table, but we never use it. Kind of annoys me. But, eh. We do eat a lot in bed, or in the game room. I don't particularly like it, but Jin can't just sit and eat. He has to multitask as he eats. And eating alone is just too depressing. So I wash sheets often and wipe off crumbs.

    I do not eat on my bed EVER. It's gross and I will feel the crumbs if there are any.

    I'm bad for sitting in bed writing, with a glass of wine and some sort of wine appropriate snacks. Favorites are chevre, dark chocolate and strawberries, Sartori raspberry Bella Vitano cheese, Dubliner cheese, Black Forest ham, turkey . . . It's decadent ;)

    And none of that stuff has crumbs. Crumbs would make me nuts -- and so would Kharma hoovering them up.

    We don't eat at the table except holidays.. I can't sit and eat either. It bores me and I end up wasting all the food. I'll often eat dinner up in my bed..

    Not that I can think of. Maybe occasionally if we have friends over and we bring a snack up. But even then I tend to eat sitting at our vanity/desk area.

    I usually don't. Like a snack, maybe but not dinner or anything unless it's easy to eat like pizza or something.. not something that would get all over my bed. I don't find it terribly gross but I don't want crumbs in my bed. ;)

    Let me say if you think eating in bed is 'grosser' than sex in bed, you might be doing them both wrong! ROFL!

    I occasionally have a snack in bed, not often though. I do keep a beverage on the night stand, normally a bottled water.

    Also....
    We sit for family dinner nearly every evening.

    I do. One of my favourite memories is visiting my grandma every weekend and how she'd always give me breakfast in bed. Always.

    I guess the habit just developed from there really. I hate crumbs in bed but I will eat in bed anyway lol. And I will and half the time do eat dinner in bed as well. We never eat at the table unless it's a holiday so we usually eat in the living room. I've spent most of the summer avoiding my family do I usually eat at the computer or in my bed room. And since the only place to sit is my bed that's where I eat lol.
