Yesterday, I woke up about ninety minutes after falling asleep with a mild headache and a very upset stomach. After situating a bucket next to my bed just in case, I dug out the generic Pepto-Bismol. After a couple shots of that and a lot of swallowing, the nausea passed enough that I was able to get back to sleep.
My stomach was less than pleasant after I woke up last night, but tolerated the pretzels and ham sandwiches that Dear Niece had packed for my lunch. I had planned to take it easy in the food department for a couple days, but not long before I clocked out this morning, I decided Fuck that.
I went to Cracker Barrel after work, and bought my usual – the Country Boy Breakfast: A thick slice of country ham bigger than my head, three scrambled eggs, two biscuits, and a sizable portion of hashbrown casserole, sausage gravy, grits and fried apples. And I ate it all. Tummy feels fine (and very full) so far.
I like to eat. If my stomach has a problem with that, it will pay the price.
