Ok. I am very PO’d! This is just not fair! Instead of feeling better I am feeling worse. My nausea is getting WORSE!! I don’t know why this is happening. It is the weirdest sensation to be nauseous and hungry at the same time. I wanna EAT!!! The meds are helping a bit and then it will just come upon me as a wave and gross me out. This makes me MAD!
Rant over…for now. Last night we had a wonderful spring storm with lightening and thunder and everything. These kinds of storms are quite rare so to get some real flashing action was a treat. It started just at sunset and lasted until I fell asleep. Yoshi was all tucked up behind my knees and didn’t even flinch with the racket.
Thunderstorms are one of my favourite things. Several years ago while I was travelling in Jamaica it was the just the beginning of hurricane season. This was the only time I could afford to go. Every afternoon there would be a short spate of storm activity and then the sun would come out and roast me and my diarrhea-ridden ass. Once we were sitting at an outdoor beach bar while the rain was sleeting down and this horrific sizzling kapow noise hit us. There was no separation between the flash and the thunder. Lightening had struck a palm tree about 30 feet away from us. The fronds were literally ON FIRE. And the smell. Ozone like I have never experienced before and a weird burning aroma from the poor tree. We decided to go inside during storms after that. The funny thing is that nobody at the resort even blinked an eye. The bartender just gave us all a round of drinks on the house. So we just turned out backs to the smoking palm and continued drinking.
