For once, I’m extremely proud of myself for not dangling my uvula with the tip of my index finger. This is due to my inhuman level of self-restraint. Forcing vomit production on this particular Thursday in November had become the norm, either that or allow my stomach and esophagus to split. Not this year. No toilet-hovering for me. You will see that I’ve cut back on my consumption. As evidence, I leave you with this Bridget Jones’s Diary-like list.
