Still Sick..

My chest started feeling really painful. I sat up in pain clutching my chest. Sitting there for fifteen minutes alone with nobody home. I suddenly started getting dizzy. I ran to the bathroom. Chest pounding. Room Spinning. I sat down and prayed to the porcelain gods sure that I was going to die. The other side of me decided it wanted to make the offering instead. So I throw down my sponge bob jimmies and scoobie doo boxers and give my offering. Still dizzy I collapse on the nice, cool, floor, and just lay there for a while thinking "This is totally not the way I want to be found dead". In hindsight I think I just got mega dehydrated from this fever I have been running. It is interesting the things that go through your head when praying to the porcelain god. Family. Life. Choices.

I told my wife I almost died. Her first reaction was "What do you want me to do about it?".. Umm, how about some humanity? Compassion? Err.. too much, I know. "Go away" was my reply. She later came back and was more compassionate. I guess she is not totally heartless.

At least now I am feeling a little better. Although I did crap my pants sitting down to poker this afternoon. Liquid chocolate goodness. It should have been a sign to not play as I lost a buyin and an SNG. Oh well.

If you want compassion, my wife would have told me to clean the bathroom before I die as I lay on the floor... Apparently her family would come over to "mourn"...

That is my least favourite use of the phrase "liquid chocolate goodness" ever. Urgh.

Oh the imagery! And I completely agree with Garth. Urgh. Hope you get better soon. I guess this is the perfect argument for a wifi laptop setup, so you can play whilst ensconced in the most important seat in the house!

At least your life insurance is paid up (may have been your wife's thought)...I've had one of those deals before; is a bit frightening to be sure.

Sir,
Tonight, if/when you sit down to the DADI, and someone says one of the following:
1.) What the hell did you step in?
2.) What the hell did you sit in?
3.) What the hell is that smell?

Think of me.
