Eternally Optimistic

Ever a non-believer in Murphy's Law and a constant supporter of the glass half-full, I've learned to see the positive side of food poisoning. I'll spare you the details, but just never, ever eat at Chipotle.

PRO: Food poisoning is a better diet than Atkins, South Beach, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and Weight Watchers combined.

PRO: Food poisoning counts as an excused absence from class.

PRO: Food poisoning makes taking multiple naps in a single day perfectly acceptable.

PRO: Food poisoning makes it completely possible to marathon Mad Men despite academic commitments.

PRO: Food poisoning will save me some serious dough -- Chipotle is an addictive money pit!

If I think of any more, I'll let you know. In the meantime, I'll be reacquainting myself with solid food for the first time in a few days...

It also lets you understand how old people can get bed sores from being too weak to roll over.

And it gives you a major appreciation for Pedialite.

Just be happy you didn't have to fly 3 hours while have the worst food poisoning ever - literally out of commission for a whole week!
