Regrets 55

Tossing and turning
his mind raced through the day’s events.
Reminders of his foreboding missteps
made his stomach churn
in ways he never knew were possible.
What had he done?
Why had he done it?
How had he let impulse control him so?
One thing was certain:
He would never eat at Taco Bell again.

I NEVER have this experience. I always go prepared with my 'little pink pills' (Pepcid AC) Works like a charm.

Cute 55.

Mine is up.

Ha ha ha! This has never happened to me with Taco Bell but I do have regrets that keep me awake and tossing and turning.

Great post!

It's the re-fried beans. They'll keep you running all night long.

Sounds more like revenge than regret.
Great 55!

CMJ - Just coinicidence. I hadn't read Brian's Mag Pie Tale until you drove me to check out what might be the source of your comment. Indeed, there are similarities.

I don't usually eat at Taco Bell. Now I'll definitely steer clear of the place now. I'm on Rx aciphex in the morning and Rx famatodine in the evening for a gastric ulcer - can't afford to have my stomach hurt more than it does. I won't forego a glass of good wine, regardless.
