You're Giving Me Agida

If only I had thought ahead and bought these 5 bottles when I took this picture. If I did, I wouldn't have agida right now.

For all you non-Italians, a definition:
heartburn, acid indigestion, an upset stomach or, by extension, a general feeling of upset. The word is Italian-American slang derived from the Italian "agitare" meaning "to agitate."

I've seen it spelled either way....agida or agita. It's pronounced, "ah-jih-ta". In any case, I have it. Please, don't get me aggravated about the spelling.

As kids our mother used to say, “you’re going to give me ajida!” LOL.
