Roaring with Hunger

After writing that long theological post, my mind turned to more mundane things. I haven't eaten since the morning, and now my stomach is growling. Or is that roaring? I love the Swedish word for being very hungry, which is vrål-hungrig. Literally, "roar-hungry," or "roaring with hunger," rather. I think it accurately captures the strong emotional aspect of being severely hungry.

"Behold, he was greatly wroth, and desired to eat. And lo, a burger would cost him many shekels."

My stomach.
