we’re going to start doing the almost-exclusively-vegetarian thing soon and I went to Aldi to get some bread, cheese, veggies — stuff for sandwiches this week.  I got back to work and made the sandwich, including about half of a jalapeno pepper.  I figured it’d be spicy but not too bad.

and now the inside of my mouth hurts and the outside of my mouth hurts and my left eye hurts, presumably where I somehow briefly touched it after cutting the pepper.

the only reason I’m still alive is probably that I pulled off half of the jalapenos on the sandwich after my nose started running.

still waiting on the endorphins to kick in.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.
