I am so sick. Friday a group of us went to a local chinese buffet for lunch. A big guy like me can go nuts in a place like this. Sesame chicken, beef and brocolli, egg drop soup, egg rolls, sweet and sour chicken, and a little concoction called peppercorn chicken.
One of the bites of the peppercorn chicken tasted kinda funny. Did that stop me? Hell, no!
By 4 o'clock in the afternoon I got the ringing in the ears. Then the headache. I popped a couple of Excedrine and didn't think much about it.
By 6 o'clock I was beginning to feel dizzy. Shortly after that, I was chilling. Epilepsy-like shaking.
That's when I remembered the one bite of the chicken.
I left work, flew home and didnt make it into the house when it started. Violent heaves. Into the bushes. Yes, my neighbors must really love me now.
Crawled into bed at 7pm, with a plastic waste basket next to the bed. Puked all night long. Was a long, long night.
It's the next day, and I'm worn out. I have been invited to a birthday party and doubt I'll be up for it. Sitting here typing is more than I can handle.
I'm going back to bed.
