Dinner tonight consisted of stir fry pork chops with broccoli and pineapple. It went down fine, though I think the past two nights I've eaten way too fast. I have got to do a better job of slowing down. Part of it is that the guys eat soooooooooooo fast, then I find myself eating fast too. I have to do better!
But here's what's weird. About 30 minutes or so AFTER we were done eating, I got this icky discomfort in my esophagus. It felt like it has when I've inhaled my food and the foamies hit. I didn't experience the foamies, necessarily, though I did have extra saliva and my nose was running more than normal...which is saying alot (and a topic for a different post). CME thought maybe it was an effect of the broccoli. Broccoli tends to make people gaseous anyway, so that makes sense, I suppose. We were out shopping when I experienced this, so we picked up some Gas-X, but that didn't really help much. Now, here it is over 3 hours later and I still feel like there's a big bubble or something stuck in my esophagus. I'm drinking a cup of decaf coffee at the moment and the warm liquid seems to be helping a little, but it's still. just. there.
