Grapes of Wrath

Boy have I been sick. I ate some big juicy sweet black grapes this weekend, ended up needing two IVs, vicoden, and antibiotics as a result. Seriously un-fun food poisoning.

Today is much better (tho' far from great), with the added 'bonus' that I've lost my voice. Apparently a not uncommon side effect of too much stomach acid in the throat. An interesting sensation, tho' the cats seem a bit confused.

Had to cancel classes today...tho' perhaps not my most unpopular decision, given that it's St. Patrick's day (kind of a big deal here at ND). Couldn't speak, and couldn't be away from the bathroom long enough to teach.

My first clue was when I put on sweats, turned up the heat, and was sleeping under two big comforters, yet was still cold. Definitely not me. What soon followed left nothing to the imagination.

Sorry to hear about your run-in with the evil grapes...it made for a pretty awesome title for your blog entry though ;)

I hope you are feeling much better by now. Apparently eating healthy is bad for you. Next time, drink those things.

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

I also feel the need to point out that the word verification required for me to post a comment is, somewhat aptly, "DISESE".

What kind of food poisoning is that?? I hope that you feel better now and that the boys are taking care of you.
