If I'm in a hurry, I'll eat standing up. My dad used to eat standing up and it drove my mom nuts. (I'm sure he still does & it still drives her nuts.)

Sometimes I even eat laying down.

I eat lunch standing up most of the time - because it's my quickest meal of the day... granted I love my food at lunch and enjoy it, I just happen to eat it in about 2 to 3 minutes! But DINNER = ALWAYS sitting down... and I make SURE to take my time... I have to sit down for dinner for a MINIMUM of 20 minutes!

I prefer to sit and we usually have the TV on for our viewing pleasure

If I'm eating a small meal, I can do it while standing up.

I always eat standing because I'm usually serving my hubby or son and then its my turn and I just keep on cleaning up the kitchen.

I do snack while I'm cooking too, but if I even eat as much as an apple, I have to sit down for it, and also either look at the computer, a book, the TV, or out the window.

Occasionally if there's a family function and my dining room table has family sitting there. I just lean up against my cabinets and I eat quickly so it's not a big deal.

"No. I can only enjoy food if I'm sitting." I have to sit when I eat. I don't know why. It's just how I am.

If it's just me, I usually eat standing up while I'm cleaning up the kitchen. With the family, try to eat at the table. Snacks just taste better standing up.

on weekdays, i eat every breakfast standing up/walking. I'd never even thought about it until now!

Street meat is best enjoyed on a late-night stroll, but most things I'll sit for.

The sheer preponderance of lunchtime lectures here at school means that most of what I do is grabbing a slice of pizza and sneaking out of a lecture before it bores me to death. I eat lunch standing up because I have to.

Bacon wrapped dogs at 2 A.M. are just meant to be eaten on the run! All my other meals though are best eaten on the slow.....sit down and take a break to enjoy the meal.

Lunch is usually spent on my feet, but dinner is always at the dinner table

I live alone and often find myself snacking while standing. Usually I cook and snack on cheese and olives.

We don't have a table to eat at so many times I eat at the kitchen counter. I actually enjoy this because it's quieter.
