Memo to myself

To: Brain
From: Stomach
Re: Lactose, and the tolerance thereof

Dear Sir,

In light of the recent ingestion of two scoops of ice cream with several cubic centimeters of whipped cream, I feel obligated to remind you that we are lactose-intolerant. The discomfort that you are feeling now was entirely avoidable; you have brought this on yourself.

While we appreciate the report from the taste buds that the ice cream was delicious, we feel it is not unreasonable to expect you to keep in mind the fact that the ingestion of all dairy products must be either accompanied by the appropriate over-the-counter lactase supplements, or foregone altogether.

I thank you for your consideration in the future.

  1. Your digestive system and mine might work for the same firm–except yours seems to have a better sense of documentation. Mine is just crabby.

    But what is life without ice cream?

    Thanks for the comments on my blog, hope you are having a good Passover too.

    Please forward this memo to Michelle’s brain. All of us involved in digestion below the mouth would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
