I recently experienced the above, except the Justin Bieber book, and as you can imagine it was a pretty painful experience! (as reading the Bieber book would have been).
I knew straightaway, whilst sprinting quicker than Asafa Powell to the bathroom, that it was food poisoning. As I was enjoying a newly found love affair with the toilet I put on my Sherlock Holmes hat to work out what had caused me to have been inflicted so badly. Was it:
- The barbecue of the previous night. I had eaten lamb and chicken, with coleslaw and a potato salad. VERDICT: Surely if this had caused the food poisoning then I would have been struck down earlier.
- Lunch was a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich which I ate on the run as I took my gals to the swimming pool. VERDICT: This would probably have been okay as It was toasted and generally not known for causing inflictions.
- Could it be that the swimming pool was the cause of my problems? After all, I do remember swallowing some of the water. VERDICT: Possibly. Who knows what goes into swimming pools. I won't elaborate on that!
- Dinner time was a tuna and veggie stir fry in an Asian sauce. VERDICT: Possibly. Fish is renowned for causing food poisoning. Or did the wife poison me deliberately?? I do remember her looking at my life insurance policies recently!!
All these thoughts were going through my head as I was spending a very extended stay in the bathroom. I was amazed at how clear my thought processes were at analysing everything I had consumed over the past 24-48 hours. It was truly amazing!
Anyway, the good news for myself was that 3 days later I was fine and 3 kilos lighter in weight. So for me there was a silver lining even though the lining of my stomach may not have had one!
