An Unexpected Reversal of Fortune
On waking up maybe 20-30 minutes later, I started to feel a little unwell. That feeling gradually grew worse and worse.
The last thing I remember on the TV was Jordan Peele, accepting an Oscar for Best Screenplay. Or something like that, as I was rushing up the stairs to go throw up.
Not pictured here: me, throwing up for about 2 hours.
While I felt a little better after the first time, I had at least two more rounds in me it seemed. I felt slightly better after each time, and kind of just sat on the edge of the tub, recuperating.
After a while, Liz brought up a blanket for me, so that I might be able to just sleep in the bathroom (I thought that might be safer).
After my third go, I decided I was done and made my way down to bed. I got pretty cold, being upstairs… and it took me a long while before I warmed up.
Unfortunately, it appeared that I got some kind of food poisoning. I was wondering if maybe the food was just too rich, and my body wasn’t able to handle things… but I’ve had all of this stuff before.
It’s a total bummer, because that was not an inexpensive meal. It’s like I paid someone a lot of money so that I could spend a few hours in my bathroom.
Not the best of omens, for my birthday. I guess the good thing is I’ve gotten all the bad stuff out of the way. Hopefully.
