Over Indulgence - Paying the price
Last night was our Annual Christmas Meal for those of us (paid and volunteer) who by and large staff St. Mary's
We had a happy, noisy evening with a choice of 3 or 4 items on the menu.
Sadly, my common sense, seldom in the ascendancy deserted me completely and I ordered, whitebait starter, salmon fillet to follow and finished with a berry trifle.
It was fairly unexciting but quite pleasant fare for a non-meat-eater. Unfortunately it was also very heavy in fat, and the result appalling heartburn!
Pointless to say that I should know better by now - I have after all been around for a while - and equally pointless to say that in isolation, each of the chosen foods would have been OK. The combination of three high-fat dishes was lethal.
My eyes keep closing, I want to sleep, but I can't lie down, and not being a horse, can't sleep standing up.
Upright I am merely uncomfortable, horizontal the heartburn is scorching and I feel really sick.
Does anyone know at what age common-sense puts in an appearance?
Answers on a very large poster please. (I can't see to read anything smaller).
