Leviticus 11:12

FoodYesterday was my wife's birthday. She's Filipino, and wanted Filipino food and, well, I suck at cooking it. So we went to a local spot called "Lumpia House", where she had beef soup and chicken adobo. I had eggs and rice, and some vegetable lumpia. Not bad. Last night, I could feel a "new" kind of sore throat. I've never had strep, so I worried about that. My throat felt swollen and raw when I swallowed. I went to bed.

This morning, when I woke up, I remembered what happened only a few short months ago, in December. My mother-in-law had made a Christmas feast for the amily. (No, no, no "I can't believe it's not Jesus" crackers...just a whole bunch of food for everyone to gorge on.) She even made some vegetarian lumpia for me (which is a lot of work for one family member, especially if he's not one you care for.)

As a kid, I used to assert that I was allergic to shrimp, as they'd make me nauseated.

After I ate, oh, I don't know, maybe 20 of the vegetarian lumpia on Christmas, I knew something was wrong, and took some antahistamene. For the first time in my adult life, the "allergy" was showing itself. Further investigation revealed that my m-i-l had fried the lumpia in the same pan (not the same oil) that she'd fried shrimp in. Apparently, the allergy is that strong.

So, imagine how stupid I felt this morning, when it occurred to me that I had ordered lumpia from a frier that undoubtedly also fries shrimp. And, I'll bet, that was the source of my "sore throat" last night. It was closing. But I never put the two events together (see...STUPID!)

(Oh, we Jews don't go to confession, and I feel I'm missing out. So I'll also take this opportunity to point out that I chipped a tooth pulling a broken ball needle out of Buko's soccer ball on Sunday.)

It's good to know that you married a Filipina.† Filipinos are very good cooks and appreciates different cuisines.† Glad you were able to determine that you have allergies to shrimp.† Just make sure to always have antihistamine in your bag to prevent further complications in the near future or if you don't want to end up being sorry like the people with allergies from the stories in reviews.
