The part where I say, "This is what I do and why, and here are my experiences with this approach." I'm not a doctor, so I'm not giving any of you medical advice. I'm not asking you to try these juices. I'm not asking your relatives or your children to try them.
Is it safe to talk yet?
Okay, then I'm saying it outright. Don't any of you try this. You might be allergic to what's in this drink. So don't do it. The earth might be allergic to you drinking this. Ask your doctor for medical advice before doing this, call the EPA and OSHA if you have any concerns it might hurt the environment and you might alert Homeland Security if you think drinking what I'm about to tell you might cause a mass panic.
We're clear on this, right? Don't do this. I do it. Don't you do it. Any of you.
What I do is take 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and dissolve it in a cup of very warm water.
One hour before I sit down to write, I stir it up again to make sure everything is dissolved. Then I drink it pretty much straight down. Sometimes it takes me two or three gulps, but I like to get it over with all at once.
Then I feel the heat. My blood starts to flow. My brain kicks in and asks what the hell I'm doing.
So what am I doing and why am I doing it?
There's a reason for it, see if you can guess what it is.
