Bloat: (v) to make or become swollen with fluid or gas.
I can actually think of several foods that bloat me. Or maybe they turn me into an “old bloat.”
Pretzels sometimes sit up on my chest.
But certainly cabbage. One cup of cabbage is equal to two gallons of bloat.
I don’t know if that’s an actual measuring scale, but it’s as close as I can get to describing the pain, which, by the way, arrives in three stages:
1. “That was good!”
2. “Why do I feel so full?”
3. “Here it comes–get the room spray!”
