I was having a tough time pulling back out of the body crisis of Saturday's ride, and then a friend with LOTS of riding experience insisted that I eat potato chips: lots of salt and potassium.
And by gum if it didn't help LOADS. Potato chips. Who knew they could be health food?!
I will be reserving this little health tip only for specific times, like right before Pedal to the Point and right after. But it's nice to have one more item in the old arsenal.
In the meantime, my daughter is now flattened with an abscessed tonsil. We had to take her to Urgent Care this afternoon, and they want her to go and get it lanced and then see about having her tonsils out. She wants NOTHING to do with this plan.
When they're in their late 20s, you can't just bundle them into the car and carry them into the hospital anymore.
They gave her antibiotics, and I hope that does the job. She has a wedding to go to in Florida in two weeks, so tonsils out right now are a no--she is maid of honor, after all!
So, way too much health stuff going on here. Hoping for a boring rest of July, healthwise!
