How to put this delicately?

Remember that "caveat emptor" thing I said about the sauerkraut yesterday?

Well, I woke up and did my usual morning routine, washing my vitamins down with a can of Spicy Hot V8 and then swilling a 16oz. can of NOS energy drink...

And my stomach, which had in the previous 24 hours been fed bacon, eggs, toast, Tabasco sauce, aged Gouda, Parrano cheese, saltines, Ruffles potato chips, French onion sour cream dip, organic sauerkraut, dry roasted peanuts, black coffee, hard apple cider, more bacon, French toast, honey, and Mello Yello Zero, informed me in no uncertain terms that we were going to go have a lie-down under an electric blanket for a while.

Sorry for the lack of content this morning. I'm off in search of something more substantial in the way of lunch, now that I'm feeling a little better.

Um, I've never quite seen anyone else eat like that besides me, and I have been know to eat potted meat on saltines, then kimchi. Followed by a half box of cereal, and a pepsi, for breakfast.

I thought only men ate like that.

Sounds to me as if you have a tummy which is more-or-less prepared for the collapse of Western Civilization. When the Iron Years arrive, it's not even going to notice, nothing will be off the menu. Vegetables go good with prey. My hat is off.

Mary had a little lamb,
A little pork, a little jam,
A little egg, a little toast,
Some pickles and a bit of roast,
An ice cream soda topped with fizz,
And boy! How sick our Mary is.

It would appear that mayonnaise may be the least of your dietary problems. However, vis-a-vis my own eccentric dining tastes, I do understand the need to lay down and let it all get sorted out.

What? No White Castles?

Second time today I've mentioned WC Sliders. I think I'm headed somewhere.

There's your problem right there: Not enough bacon.

Joanna said...

Your lack of fruits and vegetables disturbs me.

V8 and sauerkraut and cider don't count.

LabRat said...

I find it terribly intriguing that out of that list, the sauerkraut, as the novel addition, is probably the culprit...

(...On a completely unrelated note, as I put the last period on that, an explosion from S-site whacked the windows and made the dogs freak out. Maybe I should get some of this sauerkraut just to investigate its apparent powers.)

Joanna,

Vegeta-what, now?


;)

John said...

Actually, the lactobacillus in the sauerkraut was probably GOOD for your gut.

I'm guessing the sweetener in the Mello Yello Zero. Probably one of those new-fangled chemical sugar substitutes.

Grandma P, our family matriarch-doctor would always prescribe a warm 7-UP for tummy troubles. She raised 7 daughters and one fine upstanding son on that advice. Sip it slowly and let the bubbles do their thing.

I agree with Labrat on the sauerkraut being the possible culprit. Sauerkraut juice is known to have a laxative effect, depending on the amount consumed.

Robert Fowler said...

I remember being able to eat like that.

Dear Tam, you are my 11-year old daughter's new hero. Is that a good thing? My wife needs your address to send you a box of healthy snacks.

Robin said...

I bet it was the Mello Yellow.

TacticalTom said...

I just read that Illinois has to create a CCW law since they lost an appeal and came here to see if it was true!
And to my suprise... nothing!
Tam, are you slipping?

Vegetables. You know, what food eats.

Hope the repeated use of bunghole fodder what not involved...

Cheesy said...

I see the problem - you left out the sardines.

Jim said...

A nice, steaming bowl of Haggis ought to soothe the straining stomach?

No?

Mello Yello Zero

This exists? I have to look for this!

My wife tells me your problem is no mention of Maypo. Or fluffernutter sammiches or hot cocoa. And that you're probably tickin' off Moosechele Obama.... a good thing, IMHO! O:-)

Roger Ritter said...

It's the saltines - you gotta watch out for those things!
