How do I get my own sexual snacks?

Oh come on. This would actually be "I left my sexual snacks out for hours, during sex, then my partner(s) told me to get them some snacks. Are these snacks still good, and should I be mad at my partner(s)? Please do not recommend therapy or food hygiene classes."

I keep hearing about this whole eating food in public thing and I was wondering if anyone has tried it out yet. Thoughts?

Self-interest, but am quietly hoping it will at some point ask:

...as I can then retire with my work done here.

> Poem in Chicago?

Carl Sandburg is still the go-to I think. Even though laudatory lines like "Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, / Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler" are dated for all kinds of reasons, it's a portrayal that rouses some fierce sentimental feelings.

I gave it a try and it was messed up. Like... they gave me this sort of soft round rock? Smelled of wheat? And it had this weird gel on it, pale yellow and oily. Only in New York, man, I don't know how anyone can eat that stuff. Can't wait to get back home to Minnesota where all nutrients come in pill form.
