I get indigestion every time I come to Seward. I’ve been studying the problem to discover the source of my stomach problems, and haven’t come to any solid conclusions.
As I talked the problem over with Beth, she suggested that my problem might be the water. In the past, Seward water had such high nitrate levels it was ruled to be unsafe for pregnant women, nursing mothers, and small children. After a multi-million dollar treatment plant, Seward water is “safe” now. But Beth says when she drinks it, she has indigestion followed by other unpleasant symptoms. Guessing that my digestion problems might stem from a similar source, I’m switching to distilled water for the duration of my stay.
If this doesn’t stop the indigestion, I’ll have to address other variables. My problem now is the extremely flat taste of distilled water. It needs something to give it a little flavor. Salt? Dirt? I’ll need to conduct a series of taste tests to determine the best additive.
