: : We have been debating this for a long time... The phrase "it didn't touch the sides". Does it mean:

: : A) You've eaten, finished the food and you're still hungry.
: : or
: : B) You ate too fast.

: A.

I would say neither, exactly.

I think it means that you were very hungry and have eaten very quickly. There is no implication that you still hungry, I think.
