You and I have had quite the tumultuous relationship. In fact, I began this blog by writing a letter to you requesting that you return home after you had left in a fit of rage. This letter is different, however. In this letter, I’d like to kindly ask that you back off.
I try to treat you right. I really do. Yes, there is the occasional boiling ginger tea incident. And, yes, over the years I have subjected you to the horrors of various curries, jalapeños, homemade sports drinks, and most recently, about half a teaspoon of straight citric acid. But, none of these actions deserve the treatment I am currently receiving.
Your growing sensitivity to salt is something I can no longer handle. I am now unable to eat any food that has been over-salted and eating fast food has become a bit of a chore. Anything that is a little high in its sodium content now seems to be inedible to me.
I ask that you calm down and allow me to eat salty food if need be. I am not asking to be able to do this all the time; I just need to be able to swallow some food if it happens to be saltier than usual.
Thank you in advance for complying to my demands.
