Day 297..#I’m Okay!

The Culprits!

This evening I made spaghetti Bolognese for dinner, with some home-made garlic bread (because I cannot have the store-bought kind) and I also made some spicy chicken wings.

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 wanted to eat at least one, so I continued eating, a few moments later, it went down my throat the wrong way and my eyes started watering and I started coughing.

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?

  1. first I was blown away but what you could eat, but then I found my self cracking up at the hot fire in your mouth, then I felt so bad that you banged yourself, my gosh, girl, u got every emotion out of me in this blog!!!! LOL

    • I know right terry!
      I can handle hot food..but this was a little bit too much I think..
      And don’t feel head is fine..I wore a scarf wrap thing over my hair and part of my forehead so it covered my bruise when I went to work!
      People said it looked nice, but I’m sure if I wasn’t wearing it, they’d ask what I’d done to myself..they already know that I’m a little but clumsy as it is..I don’t think they know the extent to which that statement is true!

  2. I had my dinner, but boy, I still want to have those wings. :-p, don’t be too hard to yourself, just enjoy. πŸ™‚

  3. One of my favourite authors – Jeff Lucas – says he was put on this earth so that his stupidity can entertain the Christian world! I think you and he would get on just fine Apple! Much though I wouldn’t have you in any pain at all…I’m glad to see a little of the Apple that makes me laugh again! Aw girl, you do some things sometimes don’t you?

    My Father-in-Law would sympathise – he once prepared dinner, chopped chillis and COMPLETELY FORGOT TO WASH HIS HANDS. He then went to the toilet. I will say no more…

  4. AJ, ugh. You poor girl. I’m glad you survived that episode of a day in the life πŸ˜€
    Actually, I’ve had similar occurrences with spicy food. I love it, but when it goes down the wrong way, wow…
    Take care sweetie

    • I finished the other wings today..cold..and it was STILL crazy spicy..I thought maybe not heating them up would take a little but of the edge such luck..was really tasty
