It Hurts and Stings
I was able to eat some spaghetti last night. Sorta. I ate some sauce and some noodles. A mushroom or two. The tomato sauce burned a little, but it was the Diet Coke that really did it. Harsh. It made my tongue do odd things. Everything tastes metallic or alkaline on one part of my tongue. Even water. I think that's why I was able to eat spaghetti. The acidy taste mimicked the real taste of tomato sauce's acid taste and fooled my brain into thinking it was tasting something. So I could finish eating rather than losing my appetite after a few bites of no flavor.
