Dear Acid Reflux

I know you’ve been around for years but why did you decide that this morning at 4:23am was the time to make yourself known?

Oh sure, you can blame it on the stress. But who doesn’t have stress. I always have stress, or frankly I’d be asleep all the freaking time!

Maybe you’ll point to the Timmies-Arbies-KFC combo that made up my meals that I justified because I was travelling and they were fast and easy. Yes, I did listen to on telling the world that CheapEats don’t have to be Fast Food. Yes, I agree with her points that you can get good quality, fresh and healthy foods quickly and cheaply. Hell, my name’s on the book. Besides, I figured the big jug of fresh mango juice offset those sins.  Okay, I will concede your point that it might have contributed the issue more than helped.

But seriously, 4:23am?!?  After KFC?  That’s just cruel.

So Acid Reflux, thanks for introducing yourself and welcome to my world. I’ll try and be a good host and make you comfortable. I can only hope you’ll do that same for me.

Thanks for the great night.
