I'm to undergo a medical procedure tomorrow that requires that I fast all day today. Clear liquids only. Nothing red or purple.
So far, I've consumed a can of chicken broth and sixteen ounces of Gatorade. My wife just went out to buy some ginger ale and more broth.
My son's and daughter's breakfast smelled especially good this morning. He had an omelette and she had waffles with syrup. My stomach growled.
Not eating is making me grumpy. "Quit whining!" my wife said. "You can do this for one day." She's right, of course. I'm glad it's only one day.
