Her birthday was yesterday - she was 34. Of course, I am waaaay too young to have a 34 year old daughter, but anyway .... The night before they had gone shopping and stopped at a fast-food place for a hamburger on the way home. The chain shall remain nameless, but just picture a kind of creepy-looking dude in a crown! Anyway ... all was well until about midnight when sister in law suddenly bolted up from the bed, ran to the bathroom, and was violently ill! He was up all night and of course, she was too. She had it too and was feeling very nauseated but never actually vomited, just enough to make her miserable. sister in law was sick from midnight till 6:00 a.m. and both of them were up all night. Finally about 8:00 a.m. he got down a few saltines and some Gatorade and went to bed. He was still sleeping when I called her after work to wish her a happy birthday. And they still have a 5 month old baby to take care of, so when I called her she was sitting in the living room with the baby, still sick to her stomach and feeling rough. 34 isn't really a 'milestone' birthday anyway and they'll try for a birthday 'do-over' as soon as they're both up to it. But I do feel bad that she had such a rotten birthday! Don't know why he got so much sicker than she did. They both only had hamburgers, but he had tomatoes on his and she didn't so who really knows. I kept telling her she needed to report it to the health department - there could have been dozens of people who got sick from eating there. All I know is that from now on, it's Mickey D's for me, not the 'other one'!
