I’ve consumed only 1,000 calories today, less than two thirds of my normal caloric intake. Nearly all of it has been either lemon-lime Gatorade or apple juice. That’s sugar-water, essentially.
My brain is experiencing something that I’ve read about happening to fighter pilots experiencing oxygen deprivation. My brain is saying, “I feel great! My judgment is as sharp as ever! Nope, nothing wrong with me!” Then my brain says, “On the other hand, I took my phone out of my pocket a minute ago and have been staring at it since then and I have no idea why.”
