Out of the Blue

Well, I expected this to be an early update because we were to travel today, but it's turning out late because I got sick. MrsBlue took off yesterday to prepare for our trip to Atlanta to visit her mom, so we took advantage and hit a local joint for lunch. I had what was the very best hamburger I've had in a long time: At least until the middle of the night, when it announced its sudden departure. So I ended up taking the porcelain bus on an extended drive. I kept trying to park it in the depot, but to paraphrase Kramer, the hamburger kept ringing the bell! I'm okay now, but it was bad enough that there was no way we'd risk me trying to fly like this, so we had to pull a last-minute cancellation. This is a big disappointment, since we had already done all the planning and preparation, and all we had to do today was execute. When it comes time to reschedule, it's going to be like starting over. Oh well, at least I've recovered quickly. At one point it was like when you promise to quit drinking because of a hangover. I was repeatedly throwing up while vowing to never eat food again.

Hamburger doom:
It's more probable that bacterially contaminated uncooked ingreditents were the cause (tomato, lettuce, onion, etc.) than a problem with the meat if fullly cooked.
Without going into gory detail, but some of what I threw up suggested the lettuce may have been the culprit. But I ordered it medium rare and it was definitely closer to rare, so there's that too. Definitely lost that roulette spin either way.
