Tuesday, July 12, 2005 AD My New Diet Pills I've discovered a correlation between the consumption of Pepto Bismol chewable tablets and weight loss. Over the past few days I've experienced elevated levels of both phenomena. Therefore I should consume much more of the pink stuff to get really skinny, right?
In other news, did you know that coconut milk can cause quite dramatic intestinal distress? For our fellowship dinner on Sunday someone, having learned that I am quite fond of Thai food, made a red curry coconut soup that tasted very much like the dish I usually get at the restaurant near my office. I liked it so much that I went back for seconds. And then I coined a phrase: "Too much of a good thing." Although the most violent stage of my reaction -- the "O Lord, please let me die now" stage, as I like to call it -- was over within an hour or two, this evening is the first I've felt rather back to normal. I would say I've felt Tuckered out, but I don't suppose it would be fair to blame the hosts, so I'll say rather that I've been a little (Mc)Peaked since Sunday afternoon. Of course the real test will come the next time I go to the Thai place: will I be able to order L6 again, or will this experience have left me with an aversion to it? Ah well...if so, there's always L14 and L16...not to mention all the other Ls I haven't yet sampled! Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 7/12/2005 09:40:00 PM
