"You're DISGUSTING!!  Sick!!!  The grossest thing on earth!!!  Absolutely disgusting!!!"  The Voice screams and jeers, throwing accusations like knives at my throat, or stabbing like a fork to my heart, or just staring like the metal spoon, cold and hard, my image warped and twisted in its harsh reflection...

I swallow, and take another bite.

...Sometimes the biggest victories are those, which, though hidden to everyone else by the appearance of what seems ordinary, are fought and won in the vast battlefield of the mind.

The End
