A rare pain in the…

I woke up with a bad stomach ache this morning, the first such one I’ve had in a considerable amount of time. Ever since I cut off caffeine over two years ago, the number and severity of my stomach aches has dropped precipitously. It is very rare when I have one now, but this morning’s was a doozy.

Fortunately, I am feeling much better now. Good enough, at any rate, to have some breakfast.
