I fought the law and the law won!

I'm not feeling well today and after an evening out I've learned something about my body.
Denver does a cool thing called Restaurant Week. Nice restaurants around the community offer a selection of foods for the the price of $52.80. 5280 feet is a mile and we are the Mile High City, hence the pricing. Anyway for this price you get to try new restaurants that you might not be able to afford typically, and you and friend/loved one can eat great food for a reasonable price.
My family and I decided we would try a French Restaurant in the area. We were served a four course meal of Lobster Ravioli with a tomato cream sauce, Chicken Risotto Soup, Caesar Salad, and I had Lobster with a Gorgonzola cream sauce and ended with us splitting a creme brulee. Now I knew this was not a spark friendly meal, but I had decided I was going to allow myself this treat, because who knows when I would get to come again. The meal was delicious. Every single bite melted in my mouth with incredible flavor. As I walked out the door I commented to my family that I may end up regretting the richness of the meal.
If I'd known then that I was predicting the future I would have gone out and bought a lotto ticket, but alas I did not know and I spent the evening sick to my stomach. Some might say that it was "food poisoning" but I know, and if any of you fellow sparkies have been here than you know, that my illness could be attributed only to the fact that my body is not used to processing food that is so rich. My body has created it's own personal Alli. I ate foods high in fat and my body physically rejected it. So what did I learn? I learned that I have to be careful when I ask my body to digest foods that I don't normally eat. I have also learned that my body has adjusted to my new lifestyle.
I guess that's it for now, but I do advise all my spark friends to be forewarned that your body may take action if it doesn't like what you are doing to it!
