Or something else, if I want to eat something else. Or, if I am hungry, I
can start eating when the first tomato arrives. Or, if I actually want to
feed an elephant, I don't have to wory about the pizza fitting through the
door.

I think I'll just finish the parser that I have, and then see how it
compares to other parsers.
