I had a terrible Sunday, you guys. I woke up (with great difficulty) to a breakfast of Turkish sausage and eggs. And that’s where the nice part ends. Since I wanted to eat a steak for lunch I thought it would make sense if I exercised a bit before. So I decided very enthusiastically, to go swimming. On the way to the pool my stupid allergies flared up but I pushed it aside and swam anyway. Once my arms were the perfect shade of grey I decided it was time to get out. Note: Was still very excited about the prospect of steak.
We drove to the store to get my Kosher certified Angus beef steak only to find that it was the ONLY MEAT ITEM ON THE SHELF THAT WAS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. How is that even possible? Did the Universe decide that it wants to mess with my cravings? ‘Cause I’ve been wanting this steak for over a week. I even bought organic Yukon Gold potatoes to roast AND I AM NOT AN ORGANIC PERSON.
Depressed and defeated I settled for Kosher Angus beef burgers. I put Jay to work on the new cast iron skillet we bought for the steak WHICH WE NEVER GOT TO EAT.
The beef burgers were good and I roasted the potatoes anyway because.. well, just because.
Note: Allergies decided to party IN MY NOSE and I could only breathe through like, half a nostril.
At this point I realized that I didn’t dry out my wet hair and I felt feverish.
SIDE BAR: I told Jay I am feeling “somewhat”, which is Zarine for sick. And he asked “somewhat as in?”. I said I feel hot and cold at the same time AND HE LOOKED AT ME LIKE I WAS MENTAL. Feeling hot and cold is a legit sickness. He just doesn’t know it yet.
Now added to my 99 problems my left heel decided it wanted to join the shindig and started hurting like a little *beep*.
I didn’t feel like eating the dinner I made (methi bhindi masala) so I roasted two corn(s)? Cobs? Slathered it with Amul butter and salt. I was tired from all this drama so decided to go to bed early. I kept tossing and turning throughout the night. I always sleep on my side but now when I do, I can only breathe through one nostril. So now I sleep on my back, this way I have access to half of each nostril. I was out of Zyrtec so Jay offered to buy me a huge pack in the morning. After he left for work and after I treated myself with a mango to cancel out the crappy Sunday I had, I took one pill. I didn’t know antihistamines were this strong because I literally went through the day in a haze. It is a wonder I didn’t fall asleep over my cooker while making lunch.
I just inhaled one third of a watermelon and am now waiting for 8 PM which is a respectable time to go to bed.

Aww, get well soon, you :)
Omg, Zarine! I use “somewhat” too as an adjective for feeling nauseated/hot & cold/ kinda-sick-but-not-sick-enough-to-worry-yet and my husband doesn’t get it and I’m forced to spell out exactly how I’m feeling which is really annoying because the whole purpose of “somewhat” is that it perfectly describes what is essentially an indescribable feeling. Get well soon!
I’m so glad someone else feels this way too!
Can you write my blog for me? I laugh so much when I read your words. Reminds me a little of Mindy Kaling but with more Zarine than Mindy.
You just made my day! And, thanks!
Aw feel better soon hun! I hate being sick, but the bug must have travelled across the Atlantic because I have it too!
Hope you feel better too!!
Sorry about the allergy and the steak! Nothing more frustrating than allergies…I can relate.
Yeah, they’re exhausting to get rid of!
You and your ‘grey’ :D That made me totally LOL, again!! I love your posts :D You make everything sound so funny :D :D And then I feel ridiculously guilty about laughing at your hot-cold (I agree, it is legit!) :P
Thanks so much! I’m so happy you feel hot and cold too!!
