Suppression impossible

Why was I breathlessly anxious while walking my dogs this morning?

Why did a bag of spoiled cauliflower in the fridge make me so mad?

Why can’t I recall a single bit of the funny podcast I streamed in the car on the way to work?

Why do I feel that mild sting of potential tears in my eyes?

Hello, heartburn.

Oh, yes. I guess I’m trying to trick myself into forgetting. Today is Mom’s birthday. She would be 81.

Happy birthday, dear Bonnie.
