Missed One

Mist 1 does not feel like herself today. That's why she's writing about herself in third person. Generally, she finds this annoying. However, in her current state it's all she can do.

Mist had to have Chinese food for dinner last night. She had several options but she chose Chinese. When Mist walked into the restaurant, she noticed an unusual odor. A sour smell filled her nostrils but this did not sway her. She was resolved.

After examining the menu, Mist ordered the Pot of "Seafood." Never did it cross her mind that this could be a fatal mistake.

She consumed tiny "lobster" claws, "scallops" with a texture resembling pencil erasers, wrinkled "shrimp," some sort of "fish" pasty substance, and "mussels" that looked like genitalia and tasted like mud. These "sea creatures" had been stewed in a pot of tangy juices.

Mist was driving home when she began to sweat and shake like a crackhead. Then the colorful spots appeared in front of her eyes. She knew that she was not going to make it home. She had no choice. She stopped at Borders and bolted to the restrooms. After retching loudly and recreating the Pot of "Seafood" Mist felt better. Dizzy, but better.

The (overly) friendly woman washing her hands struck up a conversation with Mist at the sink. She remarked that she loved Mist's curls. Usually Mist is up for a conversation about her curls. Instead of thanking the (overly) friendly woman for the complement, Mist puked in the sink. The (overly) friendly woman did too.

Mist is going to wish that she had not forgotten the doggy bag in her car.

Mist 1 (not herself)

Dang I feel sorry for ya kiddo, I hope you feel better today. To be honest I'd rather get it right out instead of having a case of the Trots the next day! I myself stick to tuna fish and fish sticks. Just looking at that photo makes me ill. ;)

Was it as tasty the second time around???

Hope you are feeling better...

We The Readers are saddened to read of the food poisioning that has felled our friend The Mist1.

We wish Her a speedy recovery with minimal ongoing retching and pain from abdominal cramping.

Mist cannot even think about fish sticks. Blech.


It was remarkably the same the second time, according to Mist.

mr. g,

Mist is very appreciative.

Ewwww. I'm so sorry. Tell Mist to not ever go to that establishment again. Or at least, not to order that seafood pot thing.

Hope you're feeling better today {Hug}

Mist1 you are so kind to share your puking experience with the general public and that lovely lady in the restroom. I too have just thrwon up a little in my mouth but then swallowed it. Thanks for breakfast!

OMG that's horrible and yet all the chatter about Chineese food is making me want some. ;) Hope Mist feels better and enjoys discussing her curls again soon!

Mist is blocking out the memory of the Pot of "Seafood." She will never dine there again.


If Mist had a nickel for every time she made people throw up in their mouths a little bit, she would be rich.


Thanks for noticing Mist's curls.

That picture looks positively disgusting. I think I am more grossed out by that over the puking.

Hope you are feeling better! I never have been able to trust seafood from a Chinese restaurant. I'm still in denial about why my chicken & broccoli tastes the same as my pork friend rice.

At 1:50 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Mist dry heaved when posting the photo as well.

For the record, Mist knows why your meals taste the same, but she won't tell you. It's in your best interests not to know.

At 4:37 PM, Blogger anastasia said...

Awwww, tell Mist I feel for her, but I also feel for that overly friendly woman, the whole throwing up thing, it's like a chain reaction, lucky there wasn't others in there, it would of been a mess. The cleaning crew at Borders would have had an awful mess to clean. Tell Mist, I hope she feels better!!

At 7:18 PM, Blogger Schell said...

I am sure feelin it for you. That's gotta be bad. I have never had this experience, perhaps if I did, I would lose about 20 pounds. I live for fast food, take out, junk food, you name it. Gotta change the life style. P.S., I wonder if Darlene has any fast food horror stories?

At 10:34 PM, Anonymous Veronica said...

That was pretty gross, but I really do agree that it's a good thing you puked it back up right away. Otherwise the damage could have been terrible. Hopefully you're feeling better.

At 11:21 PM, Blogger ~TVS said...

Ew! My first time here. Wanna guess what kind of first impression you make?

A GREAT one!

hee hee

Mist thanks you. The overly friendly woman will never complement a curly haired woman again.


Hang out with Mist. She'll change your lifestyle. In no time, you can ralph in public restrooms too. It's so Hollywood.


Mist was fortunate to bypass all abdominal cramping.


Thanks for visiting Mist. She spills her guts a lot here.

You must not feel like yourself today. This is the first time I've seen your impeccable writing get marred by a homophonic misspelling.

I would never eat "seafood" from any restaurant except an actual seafood joint. Don't mind me as I shudder now in revulsion.

At 9:01 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


Who is this homophobic Miss Pelling? Why is she attempting to mar Mist by poisoning the "seafood."

At 11:54 AM, Blogger Avitable said...

Miss Pelling apparently got compliment confused with complement. :)

At 12:02 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Damn ignorant Miss Pelling. Wait until Mist findss out that theirs a spelling error on her blog.

At 1:39 PM, Blogger Avitable said...

Very amusing. You're making my head spin.

At 2:00 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Maybe it is the Chinese food.

At 8:27 AM, Blogger Irish Church Lady :) said...

Aw...I mist all the puking fun or maybe it was not. Perhaps I misread your post. Pass me the bag please.

At 10:23 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


Mist really enjoyed herself. So did the (overly) friendly woman.
