Funny, Sunny, you sure don't look like you have the stomachs for it.... nor did I know this meaning of ruminate, and certainly it can't have been the intended use.

It's more like: "after turning it over and over in my mind I went into the dining ruminate dinner". :roll:

There is in fact two ways to ruminate on your dinner, one is to think about it; the other is to ruminate it by chewing excessively... oh just the thought of that makes me urpy.

I just hope that no one gets an eruction from so much excessive chewing.
