Lord, but fasting is good for me. I begin to recall a title from college…belly-god. I am so very attached to the flesh.

    If my memories from college are accurate, you used to get very cranky when fasting, Mr. Bellygod.

    Does the title mean you are fasting on “bread” (and water?) or that you are really not eating anything at all — so “bread” is the term for all sorts of food the belly-god desires? (And, in reference to which, Christ said: ‘Man cannot live by “bread” alone’)?

    Nothing so marvelously acetic, sadly. I just didn’t eat until dinnertime, and was so delighted by that first bite of bread that I did indeed think of that line from Scripture – not bread alone, but certainly bread.
