Dry Heaving

Remember when you were a child and somehow you ate (whether you put it in your mouth or someone else did) something that tested your gag reflex? Well, as I watch Reilly eat, I’m often reminded of those nights of cold meatloaf, cold green beans, and cold creamed corn. After having to eat those meals about an hour after they were actually prepared – it was a battle of the wills with my parents. Anyway, watching Reilly do it with pretty much everything other than chicken, pb&j, hot dogs, stuffed shells and french fries makes me laugh at him pretty hard. I don’t think he realizes that we know what he’s going thru. It’s that thrust of the neck, gagging, eye watering, knee buckling feeling – and no matter how old you are, it’s stinks every time.
