Have you ever had a bout with bad sushi? Last week I did. I was in the grocery store one moenign about 7am and decided that I would get fresh sushi for lunch. I love sushi and in all the years I have been eating it, never had a bad piece. There was an interesting squid tentacle salad with bamboo shoots made up also. I got that with my normal platter of california rolls, tuna and shrimp and went to work.
I was in seventh heaven when I ate lunch. The squid salad was devine and so was the sushi. I felt a slight queasiness about 40 minutes after eating. It was slight and I was fine after that. About 2 hours later I had a lemon and ginger tea cookie....maybe about three of them. Then the heaving, rolling and churning of my stomach really began. I guess it was all that exotic sushi and the lemon ginger together. Not a good combo.
I began to drink water, lots of it, hoping to push it all down. Needless to say I began to feel that feeling that I needed to keep swallowing and I knew it was time to get up from my desk and sprint to the bathroom. Why is the office bathroom so far away and locked with a key that you have to sign out. By the time I got to the hall, I only had a few seconds to open the door and get in.
Projectile. That is the only word to describe what happened. Needless to say better was the only word I felt after. Needless to day I have not even wanted to THINK about any sushi or lemon ginger english tea biscuits in combination or by themselves. Just won't go there for a very long time.
