Day 297..#I’m Okay!
I ate the spaghetti, and all of the garlic bread (which was NOT my intention!) and afterwards I went to take the chicken out of the oven.
Even though I was already full, I was being greedy and still wanted to eat the wings, so I took 5 and brought them back to my room.
I’m not a person who likes to eat a crazy amount of at one time..I like to stretch out that crazy amount over a day..or at least a few hours!
Anyway, I got back to my room, sat at my desk and tore a piece of chicken off the wing.
MAN! It was SPICY!
I like spicy food..but this was a bit too much..even for me!
I was coughing and spluttering..and had run out of water, so I patted my chest with an urgency in order to attempt to stop the coughing quickly. Then I did something that I should have known I would have probably done..I wiped my eyes with the same spicy covered fingers I’d used to pull the chicken apart.
I fell on the floor..coughing, spluttering, screaming and gluing my eyes firmly together as if that would stop the burning sensation!
Couple that with the fact that I had contacts in my eyes, I really thought my life was over!
Whilst squirming around on the ground, I also managed to bang my head on the leg of my bed, a bruise I didn’t feel because I was trying to focus on not being blind AND choking at the same time.
This nonsense always happens to me!
In my house I’m known to stick my fingers in my eye whenever I’ve been in contact with something rather hot (scotch bonnet peppers, etc) or spicy.
Funniest thing is, I actually do not do this on purpose!
Why is this my life?
