Then the other day I was drinkin MY coffee and heard myself GULP my coffee. So I tried not to gulp it. Ya know when for 54 years and some months, you have been gulpin and guzzlin, it's a hard habit to break!
Then that got me to thinkin if I'm in a hurry with my liquids, what about my FOOD?
Yep you got it. I swallow and don't chew. And shovel more into the pie hole. And the cycle continues.
I'm always in a hurry. Guess it goes back to those wee children days. When like a little bird mother, you shoveled food in those 5 babies as fast as you could and you ate later. In the midst of fixin a bottle or holdin a cryin wee one, or eatin as you wash the dishes. Then later it is runnin to practices, baseball, soccer, choir, band, and then the grands pick up where the kids left off. Then throw school in there and homework. .
I just have forgotten what it is like to sit down and ENJOY a meal.
Can you imagine my stomach? What it says everytime I eat or drink?
'Oh GREAT. . . Here comes the hot coffee! Can this woman just send us a LITTLE bit of coffee not half the cup at one time? She's scaldin me!'
'My Gosh! Does she have to drink the whole bottle of water at one time? I'm drownin here. .'
'SUPER. . . Chunks. . . WE HAVE CHUNKS OF FOOD TO DIGEST! Does she not know what her teeth are for? I think I'm gonna be sick . . . '
'WOULD SOMEONE PLEEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE TEACH THIS WOMAN HOW TO EAT AND DRINK?????'
'I AM PLEEADING WITH ANYONE!! HELP ME!!!'
'I give up. . . .'
Yep, I can see it now. Must be why I have acid reflux. It is rebellin.
What does your stomach say about you?
