Last Saturday night was UD’s Spring Formal dance.
The plan was to go with some of my friends, wear this super pretty gown, and my first pair of heels that I absolutely adore!
Things don’t always work out though.
After a couple of my friends and I went shopping, we had a late lunch at a place called The Corner Market. It has delicious food (sandwiches, muffins, and tortellini) and the place is just overall very charming.
When we finished, however, my stomach started to hurting really badly.
I initially thought it was because I ate too much, so I just kind of brushed it off.
But when we were on the way back to campus, I suddenly felt the need to throw up. Luckily I had a paper bag with me so I wouldn’t mess up my friend’s car. And yes, I did puke. It was not my finest moment.
Turns out I had the stomach flu. AND it was the first time ever for me.
I proceeded to throw another few times later on.
While I was throwing for the second time, I thought about asking my roommate, Sarah, to take my place instead so the money wouldn’t go to waste. She did and looked awesome, despite having to get ready in like twenty minutes.
I have to say, having the stomach flu is incredibly painful. Call me a wuss, but I’m pretty sure I almost cried at one point.
Eventually I fell asleep (thank God).
I woke up around the time everyone got back, which was around one in the morning. By then I felt INFINITELY better. And then I proceeded to pass out again.
I couldn’t bring myself to eat anything but crackers for a while.
I don’t think I can stomach tortellini or anything with sun dried tomato. At least not for a LOOOOOONG time.
Also, I would not wish a stomach flu on my worst enemy. I mean, it was REALLY awful.
