Here's a query, food friends:
Who in our little band seems to become ill the most from eating?

Zachkay and SC have both become ill in recent postings. By ill, I mean anything from nausea to actual sicking up.

Also, is this tendency to sickness the result of what is consumed or attributable to individual constitutions?

Opinions, anyone?

I am pleased (I believe it is okay to be pleased with oneself at times on FBC and I encourage all to feel the same - it's okay to feel good about you) that I do not necessitate involuntary or voluntary vomiting as much as I once did. When I did, and when I have in the past couple of years, it has, I believe, been largely the result of drink. Even when afflicted with an illness, I believe it was drink that exacerbated things to the point of vomit. And I eat some raunchy shit sometimes, doggz. If you live in New York, take a good look at how your deli stores bacon. The answer is probably a steam tray kept at ground level that they think their patrons cannot see. It's really gross. Anyways, when I have felt urpy (thankfully not too often) it's been drink that did it.

I vomit a lot, from both food and booze, and I think the cause is a genetic defect shared with my sister - we rarely burp. We can't make ourselves burp, we almost never burp naturally.

Weird that SC's problem comes from inability to burp! Paradoxically, my body of late has been wracked with excessive and unpleasant post-prandial burping. Stomach gas is no fun!

SC, I wonder if your inability to burp is not the result of a genetic defect but instead from an excess of politeness?

this predates WIA, but on our last night in costa rica i must have reached the greasy-chicken-and-rice tipping point because i became ill for the next 5-6 days. no actual vomming, just crippling stomach pain.

I once ate some slightly off lasagna, and had weird intestinal issues for about a week. I started eating yogurt for breakfast because of that, in fact.

Since moving to New York I have been farting aloud maybe 5-10 times as much as I used to fart. Strangely, this is really only the case when Xtina is around. I think this has to do with the fact that I often have the urge to "wine and dine" her, as opposed to my normal diet of eating next-to-nothing. It also might be a power thing.
