I decided to try eating raw garlic after reading about some of the health benefits associated with its consumption. Planning to eat three cloves, I peeled the outer skin off of them, removed them, smushed the first with a spoon, popped it in, and got to chewing. It was miserable. The second one was worse. A third is not even possible right now.
Tomorrow, the whole scene will play out again, hopefully with fewer tears. Today, I’ll just see how long this aftertaste lasts.
