And the Oscar Goes To...

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I have been experiencing some gas that doesn't quite want to exit my body and enter the real world. Now, I'm sure David is torn between which is the lesser of two evils - the gas coming out or the torment I put him through when it doesn't! I'm guessing I am much more of a pain in the arse than my gas pains because he has issued his solution to the problem - a daily dose of Metamucil.

Again, for those of you who know David well, you will know that the other thing he has for breakfast is a big ol' glass of fiber. He's a tough one because he mixes his Metamucil with flax seed and cinammon and I think some eucalyptus bark for good measure. I, on the other hand, can barely choke down the orange or pink lemonade flavored stuff. David should seriously be a spokesperson for Metamucil because he preaches about its goodness like it's The Gospel.

Well, last night as we were going to bed, I realized that I hadn't taken any fiber. I usually come up with just about any excuse possible - I'm full, I'm too hungry, I am drinking a glass of milk, I just brushed my teeth... None of those were flying last night, even though the last one was true. I had just brushed my pearlies when David came into the bathroom with a large glass of orange flavored Metamucil. I did my best to get as much of it down as possible, but just couldn't bring myself to finish the last sip. Never one to waste anything, David decided he would drink what was left. As I was moaning and groaning in my closet about how nasty orange tasted when combined with minty freshness, David was standing in front of the bathroom mirror drinking the last bit. I guess my performance in the closet would have won Best Actress in a Comedy because David laughed so hard that he snorted the Metamucil through his nose and ALL OVER the mirror and our apothecary jars.

You know it is true love when you will clean your husband's snotty fiber off his bathroom mirror without even complaining.
It was hard to get a good shot, but hopefully you can see all the nastiness on the mirror!

Oh gosh. I started taking Metamucil this year too. Every morning I eat one of those gross little bars. But it makes my life so much better... we wont go into that.

If you don't like the taste of Metamucil... or just don't want to feel like a grandma taking fiber supplements, what about Activia? I've never had it but one of my coworkers swore by it. And Yo+Plus Digestive yogurt is really really good- I bought it on accident and ended up loving it!

I eat the Activia, but the Metamucil packs more of a punch. The Metamucil is not normally that bad. It's just that when Dave makes it because he makes it really thick and that's not fun.

Metamucil really does work wonders, it's just too bad it can't taste like Diet Coke.... That's really funny about the mirror - I can totally picutre it in my head right now. And I love the new blog set-up. Very nice! :)

I have just resolved myself to eating about half a large container of prunes a day. And let me just say: WOW.
they taste much better than metamucil, which I also hate....and they have TONS of Potassium.
So, prunes, prunes the magical fruit
the more ya eat
the more ya....uh well you get the idea.

I laughed so hard I think I coughed on my computer monitor! Thanks for the laugh!
