it's worse than you think - day 2

i went to my fridge with a real sense of purpose this morning, determined to conquer the repulsion by strength of will alone. i chose a different brand (i have two kinds of natto stocked for the week), thinking - or rather hoping, somewhat desperately - that it would be better. after i opened the box, and contemplated the slimy mess, it took me half an hour before i actually managed to dig in. i slowly finished my coffee, sitting on the windowsill in the morning sun, overlooking sheridan square. the setting was perfect. but it happened again: i gagged. twice. and although the second mouthful did not cause the same nausea, i didn't dare a third. thank god tomorrow morning is a long way away.
