Fat Tuesday

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent. Knowing that I will be giving up desserts for Lent, I have been gorging myself on junk food for the past few weeks, and it shows.

Anyway, today is Fat Tuesday, and the building management brought in coffee and pastries from Starbucks. Since I was in a feeding frenzy, I had a cup of coffee and a piece of apple danish.

Holy nausea, Batman! Now I remember why I don't eat the food at Starbucks or drink their coffee-in-a-box. Less than 10 minutes after finishing it, I have got the worst case of heartburn. The coffee was probably the culprit; it was awful and bitter, even with a packet of sugar. I've had truckstop coffee that sat better in my system. The danish wasn't that great either. It's sitting in my belly like a lead weight.

NOW I am ready for the Lenten fast. After eating that breakfast, I'm confident I won't have much of an appetite for the rest of the day, and this definitely shows me the pain of gluttony.
