Cool odd hot water pressure

here's a head scratcher for you all to help me figure out. everythings working fine. then for no apparent reason i lose almost all my hot water pressure at the kitchen sink. the pressure is fine in the rear bathroom, but not so at the kitchen sink. what's going on? any clues would be of great help.

Piece of mineral or corrosion deposit from the heater has gotten into the line and is impeding the flow?

Take the bubbler/strainer off the end of the spigot. You will find it completely clogged with scale.

Or something's clogging the hot water side of the kitchen faucet valve assembly.

Do you have shut off valves under the kitchen sink? If yes, check the hot water shut off valve as well. It might be where the clog is.
