But I'm so sleeeeeeepy!

We’ve all been there. You’re sitting in class when your stomach starts to growl uncontrollably in the middle of a quiet lecture. Embarrassed, you wrap your arms across your tummy to suppress the noise. But it’s too late. All of your classmates have heard your grumbles and there’s no recovering from there.

You proceed to count down the minutes until it’s time to ditch the books and grab some grub at the nearest dining hall. Here’s where the ten stages of the food coma become real.
