Well I’ll be (And shiver me timbers)
You learn something new every day, such as:
Yesterday but moreso today, whenever I would eat something, there’s been a weird bitter aftertaste in the back of my throat. No matter what I eat. Gum, chips, candy, or my leftover pesto. So tonight I finally googled it “chemical aftertaste in the back of my throat.” And I had found my answer within seconds:
Pine nuts! Purchased in bulk from Smiths. And they’re not cheap, I might add. I made pesto a couple days ago–it was delicious, and I was so proud of myself (I grew the basil myself). I’ve been eating it 3 days in a row. But! Come to find out, rancid pine nuts cause an ongoing bitter aftertaste in the mouth. I also fed it to a couple friends yesterday. Hopefully it hasn’t affected them!
Nice to know I don’t have a brain tumor. I think I’m going to throw out the little bit of pesto that I have left. (Pine nuts aren’t cheap, either!)
And now, in honor of the waning International Speak like a pirate day, I will translate the above into Pirate. This online Pirate translator has totally made my day. Arrgh!
