Gratitude Journal: Salivation
For about a year I have noticed that it's hard to swallow and that I haven't had much spit. I think my spit glands somehow dried up. I thought I was just a big pig and was eating too fast and that's why my food was going down hard. But around Valentine's day I started eating Starbursts and Swedish Fish. Normally I do not eat this kind of candy but the kids would hand it to me and I would just eat it to make them happy. (I really want my kids to be happy, you know?) Well, I am glad I did because I think the tartness somehow turned my spit back on and it is so much better now. I'm afraid you might think I'm saying this just because I said this three years ago. Well, I don't care what you think--it's all true.
