You know that starving feeling after shachris on Shabbos? It’s especially severe if you are a guest somewhere. I’ve been so hungry during davening so many times that sometimes I think about food during my davening; I fantasize about the kiddush. I also plan on how I am going to beat about the rest of the chazerim at all the different tables. When you’re a kid, you can take a plate and stuff it before or during kiddush. When you’re in your mid-30’s like I am, it makes you look like a chazar. If you are a guest and you pre-plan your plate, they will think you are a Major League schnorrer.
Either way, I’ve prepared a post which outlines my PERFECT kiddush.
