Late Friday morning, I shoveled some food quickly into my mouth and I thought “man this is goooood.” Then I felt it. There were no bells and whistles going off but I did see the waving red flags in front of me. I was experiencing a productive burp (PB) and it wasn’t pretty.
My friend over at Invisible Ink explained it this way, “A PB is a “productive burp.” I don’t really know how to explain it until it’s happened to you – you get stuck (either because you eat too fast or don’t chew well enough) and the food just sits on top of your band until you end up kind of violently burping it back up. It’s not cute.”
Agreed. It was NOT cute. In fact, I had to lean against the sink in the kitchenette to attempt to stop the hideous pain that was where the food was literally sitting. I kind of leaned over and grabbed a paper towel and like a baby spewing milk and mush, all the cucumber salad that I had just shoved down my pie hole was now in the soggy paper towel. Lesson learned.
