Chip Off the Old Blech! [Sep. 2nd, 2015|07:46 pm]
Long ago I concluded that potato chips are evil, and yet I continue to buy them. There was a buy-one-get-one-free deal on big bags of potato chips at one of the stores Sunday and I couldn't resist. Evil! This afternoon, barely recovered from last night's bout of overeating that resulted from being able to use the oven for the first time in months, I decided to have only a small lunch, with a few potato chips to make it interesting. Half a bag of chips later I had brought back the previous night's stuffed nausea. Evil! Why do the do-gooders crusade against tobacco and heroin when potato chips are clearly so much worse, and far more insidious? Truth! Potato chips are evil!

Looks like I won't be wanting any dinner tonight. If I'm still awake around midnight maybe I'll have a peanut butter sandwich. Right now I'm just terribly thirsty. All that salt. But I don't want to drink too much, as that will make me sloshy, which will aggravate the nausea. I'd try to take a nap, but I fear getting into a horizontal position. Maybe I'll feel better if I go outside in the cool evening breeze and watch the stars emerge. The nights are getting very cool very quickly, which is a great relief after all those sultry nights August brought. I'm glad I didn't stuff myself with potato chips then. Being hot on top of being nauseous would be much worse than this.

Oh, I think I can water tonight. It's an even-numbered day and the back yard hasn't been watered in at least six days. That will take my mind off of my stomach. But I'd better do it before it gets any darker out there. Not much fun to try to water plants you can't see.

Salty snacks really are insidiously addicting. They plan it that way, of course, so we're helplessly in their power! Hope you feel better today.
