If there was any question about my loss of taste it was proven gone today. Things have not been tasting great and for the first time ever I found myself saying I hate food and hate to eat. This coming from a diehard live to eat person. Well my first clue was homemade chili Miriam brought for dinner…didn’t taste a thing and Sam was worried it was to spicy!
Then today we sat down for lunch and Miriam found a jar of McClures pickles in the frig Charlie and Taylor send us. Now pickles I can taste so we got them out. Miriam took out the first pickle, took a bite and started to huff and howl and she looked at the jar and said omg these are spicy! It took her a good 5 minutes with nose running and drinking to be ok. I am not good with spicy stuff…I usually cough up a lung, sneeze uncontrollably and my nose and eyes run.. Ordinarily I wouldn’t even consider trying them. But…since my taste buds are out of whack, what the heck. I took a big ole chomp of a pickle, chewed and swallowed…and I could feel a littl bit of heat but not even afill inch. I finished the rest of the pickle. Crazy huh! Maybe I should go do one of the spicy wing contests? Nah I’ll pass, I just want my Tastebuds back.
