Odd title for a thread, especially in the political zone, but let me try to explain. I just ate a Whopper from Burger King, well I ate 3/4ths of one I should say. You may ask, what does this have to do with anything. Besides a half of a pbNj sandwich, this is the first thing I have ate in 3 days. No I was not on some religious or cult fasting spell. No this fat man was also not on some super duper diet plan...screw diet plans. I had developed a wicked case of viral tonsillitis that started early last week. I have had sore throats in the past that usually go away after a few days so I did not worry much about it. However it got so bad by Wednesday that I could not eat anything because it was too painful to swallow and I am not a wuss when it comes to pain. The wife knew it was bad when I told her that I am finally going to have to go to the doctor. She said...Whoa it must be really bad. You see I am one of those that just does not go to the doc unless it is a situation where I have no other choice. I will tell you this, you do not know how many times you swallow while you are asleep until you get something like this. So on top of not eating for 3 days I have also only got a few hours of sleep. Lucky to get 30 minutes of sleep at a time due to swallowing and waking up because of it OR the pain is so bad you find yourself just not swallowing your saliva (or drainage) and when your mouth is full you spit it out in the toilet or a lined trash can by your bed. I have spit more in the last three days than I have the last five years combined. Now I get the drugs from the doctor so I am taking Antibiotics, A decongestant, Claritin for my ears and tylenol out the ying yang. Add that into not sleeping well and refusing to swallow when asleep you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night with a side of the face and side of a pillow full of drool so again it is like not getting any sleep again. Now No good sleep for the last few days. Only half of a PB&J sandwich a buttload of pills on an empty stomach...oh and I opened a 16 oz bottle of water and have yet to finish it so that should tell you how much I have had. Yesterday my stomach sounded like a pissed off chained up dog trying to get at a teasing cat it was growling so hard. Tried the PB&J and I just could not finish it, it was that painful. So just a little bit ago I got a Whopper. You see my throat is still sore but the antibiotics and other meds are starting to work. Still sore but not like it was. Now normally I could eat that whopper in a couple of minutes and could probably eat another if I wanted to. This time It took me 30 minutes...I know because I started watching an episode of mash and it just finished as I said enough of the whopper. Well the whole hooplah of telling you all of this is to Apologize if I have been mean to anyone in here today or the last couple of days. I don't think there is anything I have said that I feel is wrong in the meaning of it, but I do think the delivery or attitude of it was probably pretty crappy and again for that I apologize.
