veeta vita vegimine

Have I mentioned that I’ve started taking vitamins? I thought I’d better do SOMETHIN’ when I started losin’ hair a few weeks back. And, that has slowed down dramatically, by the way. (Praise God.)

Anyhow, per the advice of my doctor, I have begun taking calcium supplements, as well as a Centrum multivitamin daily. And, I know that for folks who are REALLY into vitamins, that’s nothin’. But, for me, it’s huge. Why? Because the stinkin’ pills themselves are HUGE. And, frankly, y’all…I do NOT do well trying to swallow pills that are so enormous it looks like a horse pill.  Heck, my gag reflex is serious, to begin with. Like, I gag brushing my teeth. Okay? And, I promise you, for those who have not eyeballed this brand before,  a Centrum is so big it looks like it needs to be forcefully blown down the throat of the victim. *Ooooooooh!!!!* Gives me the shivvers just thinkin’ about trying to choke down one of those monsters!

Last weekend I gave myself a couple of days off from my morning GAG sessions. One day last week I gagged to the point where it actually catapulted the stupid vitamin back out of my mouth and into the water glass I was trying to wash it down with. Ker-SPlasH!

OF course, Terry thinks the whole thing is completely hilarious. And, if I ever have MORE trouble than usual with getting my vitamins swallowed, it’s when Terry is standin’ in the kitchen hee-hawing at me for being unable to manage the task without gagging and beating my fist on the counter top in exasperation.
