When I awoke this morning, I had sharp pain in my throat from a sore throat and I could barely swallow. I gargled some Listerine, which seemed to kill the bugs and the pain. I still didn’t feel well, so I called in sick to work and did my link buying from home.
Tonight, I was digging through my freezer for something to eat and found an eel I had bought from the Uwajimaya market a while back and it said to boil it, package and all. So I did. Now I am sitting here feeling a bit feverish and hacking and eating a giant eel that is actually quite tasty. Such is life.
