This is Nalin, the Coolest Little Indian Dude (TM) on the planet. He was in town from NYC this week. So, I rallied up 6 other former coworkers from the dot com era walk down memory lane with drinks in hand.
Well, *I* didn’t drink because of my stomach, but gosh, I’ve forgotten how good Shirley Temples are! 🙂
The gang gathered for grubs and beer at the Farmer’s Market then moseyed down to the Grove’s Whisper Lounge for something harder.
Remember I talked about finding your real friends while getting sloshed? It was with this bunch here that I came to that conclusion. We didn’t quite get to the same point of philosophical jibber jabber last night (although Julie-anne and I broke into fantastic renditions of “Tie me kangaroo down, sport” and “Waltzing Matilda”), but we did end with a very poignant note.
Me: Nalin, I’m so glad we could do this with you, man! We’ve missed you.
Nalin: You guys should do this on your own more often. I mean, how come you don’t just hang out like this on your own?
Matt: Are you kidding? Nalin, you’re the glue! We gathered here because of you. You’re the glue that holds us all together.
Kil: It’s all about the Curry, brother!
Indeed, Kil. It was all about the Curry.
Nope. No ulcer. Just really wicked case of acid-y stomach. I have to continue taking Prilosec twice a day and go easy on food. Hopefully, everything will go back to normal next week. So, yep. I can’t put that much food in my stomach at one time and walk away comfortably right now, so I’ve been noshing through out the day. Not much fun.
Yay for no ulcers…and curry!
Sorry to hear that you have GERD. I had it too for awhile. It was so bad at one point that I just layed in bed in fetal position for most of the day. That was before the doctors figured out it was GERD and put me on Prevacid.
Just have to be careful about acid-y foods, like spicy food, OJ, tomato based pastas… Hope you will feel better soon! How’s Brandon? Is he better?
