“I’m just one stomach flu away from my ideal weight.”
-Emily in The Devil Wears Prada
Recently, I spoke on the Ten Plagues. This week, I’ve experienced what certainly would have been number 11.
And you know, I’m keenly aware that you don’t want to spend precious minutes surfing the web at work only to read about someone’s brush with death…but I can’t help talking about it. It’s the elephant in the room. The monster under the bed who keeps growling and pawing at the mattress. It must be said:
I have been felled by The Stomach Flu.
I hate any sickness…but the stomach flu? Is a bad, bad guy. It’s wretched and wrong and this one has added several foods to my “Will Never Eat Again” list. Also, it’s sucked all the writing inspiration right out of me.
On the flipside: I lost five pounds!
