The world can be so full of splendorous color if you just slow down, open your eyes every once in a while, and take in a beautiful sunset—and also, if you regularly eat lunch to keep your stomach in check.

4. The soft oranges and gentle yellows of this sunset are beautiful to behold. The loud rumbles and burbling noises your stomach is making are not beautiful to behold, however, and are going to make you wish you didn’t skimp on that picnic.

6. Isn’t witnessing the sun setting over the city with a date in your arms just picturesque? What better soundtrack to experiencing earth’s magnificent colors with a loved one than the sound of your grumbling stomach. Good thing you didn’t eat lunch today. You’ll definitely get another date out of this, by the way.
