prune juice

Posted in journal on January 4th, 2010 by george

Yesterday I woke up feeling like I’d eaten a dairy farm. Industrial amounts of meat, cream and cheese. I felt bloated, sick, lethargic and useless. Clearly the seasonal excesses had finally caught up with me.

I dragged myself out of bed with considerable effort, and went to church. When I got home, I did a tiny bit of tidying up, then went back to bed for 2 hours. When I awoke I resolved to fast for the day, except for non toxic liquids.

I went to the supermarket in the middle of the afternoon to buy fruit, vegetables and salad fixings, juice and water. Included in my purchases was a carton of prune juice. By 7.00pm I had drunk the whole carton. Much of the remaining waking hours was spent on the porcelain throne officiating at a spectacular clear out.

One day later I feel transformed. I think I’ll do another carton today, just to be sure I didn’t miss anything.
