Food Hangovers.....

Sunday, March 15, 2009.....

I don't care what anyone says, but food hangovers are HORRIBLE. You know when you drink too much you're in for a possible evening of praying to the porcelain god and scrambling for Alka Seltzer.

A food hangover is different because you forget the food that sparks it. It is one of those things that you file away in your memory bank thinking you'll remember never to eat the food again. The only problem is that as you get older, the memory bank is pretty damn full and new info is sometimes not accepted, or a new tidbit of stupid facts replaces the important items (name, phone number, etc.).

For me, it was pork ribs slow cooked in the oven. Too much fat for me to digest and I was searching for Alka Seltzer 2:30 a.m....Ugh....

The only plus of a "food hangover" versus "alcohol hangover" is that I don't have to stop and think if I did anything I'd be mortified for.

To avoid a future incident, I am not going to rely on my memory (too many fun items I want to store). I am going to rely a bright orange post-it note and the wall in front of my laptop.

I hear you. Some pepperoni pizza did me IN last night. And by some, of course, I mean "more than any human being should consume in one sitting."
