A bad idea, no matter how you look at it...

We went out for dinner Friday night. A romantic "welcome home" dinner was what we had in mind. What we got instead was me running to the bathroom over and over again for the next five hours, while Steve quoted NBA star Charles Barkley's T-Mobile commercial: "That's why I DON'T eat shrimp!"

ACK.

The worst part of this story, though, is that two nights later, when faced with dinnertime AGAIN and no food thawed, I actually said, "Hey--we still have some money left on that gift card--we could go back to _______! I mean, what are the odds of getting food poisoning twice?"

Well if it were me, I would choose the restaurant because if I cook at home I know for sure that I'm going to get sick

I'm with you, I totally would have thought of going back.

I guess cheapness overpowers avoiding food poisoning on my list of priorities!

Oh, Trish, you'll not soon forget THAT gift (card)!

I think eating gum off the bottom of a T seat would have been a smarter idea.

Ohhhhh no! I guess the good news is that you're feeling better, otherwise you'd never suggest that place again, huh?

If it's any comfort, your pain made me laugh. :)
