A public service announcement

A bad time to read a book on meditation and mindfulness is when one has food poisoning. Because it's really depressing to read about how important it is to exist fully in the present moment when the present moment is filled with intestinal distress.
There may be more to this book than that, but I'm only about 20 pages in, and I'm giving up for now. I can't take it anymore.
Instead, I think I will weave in sock ends.

Dang, had I known you were in a weaving in ends mood, I totally would have sent you that little cardigan I just got done with for one of my nieces. Side note, how come THEY all get girls? I finished knitting the dang thing back in November and just now seamed it up. I totally would have paid you in sock yarn. Or given you directions to the best Chinese place I've even been to in Naperville.

OH OW! Poor you =( hope you get better soon. I've been told that eating a bunch of iceberg lettuce would speed up recovery of food poisoning, but have never been able to drive to the store to get one when in the throes of that particular problem, so I'm not sure if it works.

Iceberg lettuce, huh? I have to work this afternoon and I was going to stop at the store for some soup, bananas and applesauce to snack on .. maybe I'll get some lettuce, too. It can't hurt.

Oh no.... I shouldn't laugh, but you make your distress sound humorous. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Oh, sorry you're sick. That's terrible.
Have you tried peppermint tea to settle things down?

Aiiieeee! Sorry about the food poisoning. The last time I had it (and I hope that's literal and I never have it again) I read a great adolescent lit novel--it was just long enough and light enough to get me through. Bleh.
