I felt a little hesitant this morning and even a little rebellious. But, right now I'm eating a sprouted onion bagel with fake cream cheese. The cream cheese has the same texture and appearance as real cream cheese but, it has no taste, which is fine with me. Mid-bite on about my fourth bite I remembered I was supposed chew, chew, chew, and I was suddenly aware of all the large pieces I was about to swallow. I noticed an excitement too, sorta like chew and swallow -- HURRY GOTTA GET IT DOWN! I didn't know chewing really well could be so.... pleasurable.
