For those of you who didnt know already, puking really sucks. Ive done extensive testing of this theory in the past 18 or so hours. Amy and I both got food poisoning last night, so we were competing for bathroom and bucket time. Either she poisoned us with some not well-washed salad, or I did with some not well-cooked eggs. Or we got the mystery sickness, which is always a possibility. Anyhow, no work today for me. Amy was able to make it to her class, which wasnt until 6pm.
When I called in to work the seceretary told me to drink ambo (sparkling mineral water)with lemons and honey, which sounds good now but didnt when Id just finished re-visiting my dinner. Other remedies weve been told for sicknesses weve had here: boiled Coca-Cola (for the flu), boiled Orange Juice with a shot of vodka in it (flu- this one is sold in some cafes), boiled Mirinda with vodka (flu- I guess they think orange flavored pop is an OK substitute for OJ). And the one I really agree with: boiled lemons, sliced in half, with peel and all. Add some loose tea and smother with honey before drinking down. It seems to provide a good shot of Vitamin C.
