Wine flu!
« on: July 17, 2009, 12:57:25 PM »
So...  one girl in our English Department is leaving and another getting married.  We went out for a meal on Weds night and I decided to swap the amitryptiline for a 2nd glass of wine.  Well, I woke at half past midnight with pains in all my joints from finger tips to neck and toes to hips... with awful heartburn too.

At work next day I felt much worse than the bride to be and the youngsters who can manage all this and more.  I guess there comes a time when a glass of wine is just not worth the pain..

Hi Ailsa

I've had to kiss the wine goodbye too. The last time I had some was two years ago at my God-daughter's wedding. I just had the one glass at the reception in the afternoon, and then missed the evening reception, as I was in my hotel room being very sick.  I stick to whiskey now ;)

Yeah, me too, any kind of spirits really, and I ain't talkin' about Casper either ;) ;D)!  

Dang, I miss a nice chilled glass of wine at the end of the work week, oh well, it could be worse I guess  :'( (boo hoo hoo!).

Ailsa,

You poor thing . . . bet you won't do that again!!  Guess you'll just have to stick to tea, coffee or water.

Patze . . . ahhhh, I loved Casper . . . they don't make cartoons like that anymore.  :(

Tomorrow night I'm attending a wedding reception . . . I'll think of you guys and your "ordeals" as I sip my ice tea.   :D
