ef·fer·ves·cent

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Dictionary.com defines ef·fer·ves·cent as an adjective
1. (of a liquid) Giving off bubbles; fizzy.

Why do I mention this? Well, it all started with lunch. I found these amazing whole wheat pita flat bread thingies that I used to make a tasty lunch time treat stuffed with Spinach, tomatoes, carrots, and steak. The bread has a slightly garlicy taste and smells incredible. It seems lately my food has been lacking in smells or tastes that really excite me.

As good as the pita was, it wasn't effervescent. But my peaches were. I had a little cup of sliced Dole peaches in juice. For some reason, they made my tongue tingle. It was such an odd sensation that I had to stop and savor it. Ponder its meaning. Was it a bad thing? Did it indicate a problem? Peaches didn't have a bad smell. They were nice and cold from the refriderator. Why on earth would they make my tongue feel so odd. So, how do I describe it? Bubbly? So effervescent?! Was it a chemical reaction? Or just a crossed up wire in my nervous system? I don't know, but it made the moment memorable. And anything that makes me stop and savor my food instead of inhaling it, is a good thing.

Any one else ever have this wierd sensation with a non-carbonated food/beverage?
