I suddenly developed a metallic taste in my mouth. Being amazingly health conscious I decided to go Online and research possible causes. Some causes that came up were lack of oral hygiene, infection in a number of possible locations in the head, or dementia. Is this a multiple choice test?
Cures included brushing teeth and tongue, having oneself committed to a care unit and/or inflicting oneself upon family members, or eating citrus. Ever the optimist, I bought a bag of navel oranges.
butchered sectioned about a dozen oranges and cut them into bite-sized pieces. I presented a container of these lovely pieces to my husband and asked if he’d like some in his lunch. Because I have the sniffles, and he is adverse to being diseased, he asked if I wore gloves when I prepared the oranges.
“I did better than that,” I answered. “The kitchen is cold so I wore mittens. You’ll also get a bit of fiber with these puppies.” He loves my sense of humor. He took the risk and I included a container of orange pieces in his lunch.
Personally, I consumed about a half dozen oranges that morning. The metallic taste disappeared. Just call me Doctor Grandma!
