Avoid puffer fish unless you know which are safe. Certain varieties are poisonous. Puffer Fish on Wikipedia

This is not about what I did today to prepare. Instead, this is about how my EDC was there for me when I needed it.

Three times in my life I experienced a severe case of heartburn. As part of my EDC, I have an 8OZ bottled water and a first aid kit in my bag. In my first aid kit, I have three packets of Alka-Seltzer. As mom and I were out, I felt the burning sensation again. My EDC was there when I needed it.

I had to skip dinner tonight. I'm still not feeling well. I tried just a bowl of yogurt thinking I could at least handle that. I am.

Mom says this is an experience I could learn from, figure out what I could have done differently. I EDC bottled water and Alka-Seltzer. I don't know what I could have done differently.

I joined the gun club today . . . yes, the same in which Mom is an officer (the club's secretary, to be more specific). The majority are men; there are some women. At thirty-one, I am the youngest member.

JI... will your doctor prescribe omeprazole (20mg) for the heartburn... congratulations on stepping to the dark side at the gun club....if you ever decide to carry concealed, think about joining one of the action shooting sports... I prefer USPSA...it is a very good way to learn safe gun handling skills in dynamic situations....it is active in the Ocala area... YMMV

No, the doctor, instead, has put me on 40mg of Omeprazole.

I joined the gun club to be informed in other ways.
