Starving \ verb \ stär-ving:
To perish from lack of food; to suffer extreme hunger; to suffer or perish from deprivation.
People, are you really starving? Really?!? Let’s make a deal: When you’re hungry, skip the dramatic overtures and just grab a piece of fruit or a Snickers; in return, I won’t think any less of you and your Oscar winning performance. Deal? Deal.
