In and out

One of my friends kept telling me that I should try a smoothie from Smoothie King. She exclaimed that they were really delicious and she described it like it was the best thing on earth. So I decided to hop on over there and get myself a smoothie. I had been drinking one from maybe Burger King or even McDonald's, which didn't cost no more than 2 dollars and some change. So when I walked into Smoothie King, I didn't expect to be paying no 5 dollars for a smoothie. Shoot, that could've been two smoothies at my other places.

Well, I thought I would splurge this one time and get the smoothie. Boy oh boy, was it delicious or what! It took forever to suck that thing down and it was a small too. Every drop made me forget about how much it cost, and not only that, it was fulfilling. I was so full after sucking that thing down. That was the end of the day on Friday.

On Saturday, when I expected to sleep in until at least 11, and I didn't have to get up and take nobody here and there, and when I didn't have to be anywhere myself, something rumbled and double-dutched and hopscotched and hoopla-hooped at 6:35 in the doggone morning. It was my stomach. It decided to do a dance like non other. It was doing the wobble, the jig, and the twist and shout. I hurriedly got up and had to go to the toilet. Even the fireman could not put this fire out. That smoothie slid on out as easily as it slid down my throat. Lawwwwwd, it hurt all day. I was cold, then I was hot. I was back and forth in the bathroom. I couldn't eat all day. I did drink water just so I would not get dehydrated. But all in all, that smoothie tore my stomach the slap up.

When I woke up on Sunday morning, I was still in pain,  but not as much as I was in earlier. When my alarm clock went off for me to get up for church, I just couldn't do it, and if it had've been a work day, I would have had to call in sick. I lay in bed and hoped that just a little rest would help me feel better. Hubby mentioned that we had pepto chewables, and I got up to get one and in like 15 minutes, I was beginning to feel better. Thank God for healing power.



  1. What a horrible experience! Maybe you got sick because you know you don't pay $5 to drink ANYTHING! LOL! I'm so cheap, I would have walked out. If you have a blender, try making your own. Less expensive and good for the entire family. Firstborn likes banana, apple and pickled beet smoothies. Well, I call it a smoothie. :) Blend it, grind it, drink it!
