Lately, I’ve been hearing the word “hangry” used in jest more and more. For those not up to speed on the definitions in Urban Dictionary, “hangry” is a term used to facetiously describe someone who gets angry, or moody, when they get hungry. Back in university I traveled with a girlfriend through Europe for six weeks, and after a few weeks of spending every waking minute together, she knew that there were certain times of the day that it was in both of our best interests that she fed me to keep my mood in check.
