Some of you may know that I got a bout of food poisoning the past few days. This recent incident got me thinking back to a question that I had a long time ago.
I was in South Africa when I too got a bout of food poisoning then, we had to make our way back from the weekend seaside beach back to the city and I was truly down and out. My poor companion had to drive alone for several hours, within that time we stopped as though I couldn't eat, she needed to.
We stopped at a recommended place and well known for their oysters. I've been told that the oysters are really great here and to my utter disappointment, all I could do was watch her eat while I watch in silence and agony. Look at the photos, don't they look great?
To this day, I've regretted not eating those oysters, especially when my companion was raving about it the whole time.
It got me thinking, if you are going to be somewhere where you might not have a chance to head back anytime soon and you have an opportunity to eat some really delicious food, would you just say "Screw the food poisoning, since I have to suffer anyway, I might as well eat them?" or "I need to let my body get over this and so forever let go of that delicious food"?
What would you do?
