    Oh you just brought back a bad memory....the last time I had food poisoning was in Florence, my first night in Italy. Carpaccio with a gorgonzola sauce. Arghh. Lost the next two days in Florence. And what made it worse (this part is funny now), I went to the pharmacy for something to help, but didn't know Italian so I couldn't ask for anything. A little sign language and a few hand motions got my point across, har, and I ended up with Ipecac (or it's cousin). And since I couldn't read the directions....well you can probably guess the outcome.

    Glad you're feeling better BR!

    I'm glad to hear you're feeling better BR! Food poisioning is the woooorrstt.

    I have been afflicted 2 times - once in college and another time at home when my husband, while griling chicken in the dark, we think must've put the cooked chicken on the plate which he had carried the raw chicken instead of the clean one he brought to transfer it once cooked:bang:

    In the middle of the night, I woke up sick as a dog and, of course, as all good wives do, immediately blamed him..."you must not have cooked the chicken right" yada yada yada. Of course, this provoked a mid-night fuss between us as he said he was just fine, felt fine and who was I to blame him. About an hour or two later, it strikes him, too, and we were in bed for a few days after that. What a scene it was :funn:

    I know, John R...my husband likes his burgers between rare and med-rare, me med rare. What's worse is going to a restaurant where they won't even cook it med-rare - can only order med or above! YUCK!

    Steak tartare...this is something my whole family LOVES but I've never been able to do. Then again, my husband eats any and all offal meats and innards when possible. They even do the raw egg on top - looking at that while pregnant was one of the most disturbing food experiences for me. Couldn't eat my meal I was so quesy watching that raw egg white drip when scooped into and than popped on a piece of toast and into the mouth.

    I wouldn't wish food poisoning on my worst enemy.....Without giving toooo much info (TMI) I never experienced the evacuation of fluids from my body in such a rapid and violent way as i did after eating the hot dog from the bowling alley as I did at 2:00 a.m. one night after several libations.....sick for 2 solid days. Good luck there beach runner......god speed!
