It burns like hygiene! [Apr. 17th, 2004|11:20 am]

So, I think I've mentioned this before. But, I've been sick recently. Fortunately, I've been getting better, thanks in part to the medication that I was prescribed. Anyways, I took my medication this morning after breakfast, then went to the computer. I sat down, and a minute or two later, I felt a belch work its way up. I exhaled the air through my nose, and a cloud of dust came out. Suddenly, my throat was burning, and I was coughing up dust. I ran to the kitchen and got myself a glass of orange juice, which calmed things down significantly.

As near as I can figure, the capsule broke apart before it had reached my stomach, and when I burped, the air flowing past the open capsule made the contents fly up into my nose and throat. Let me tell you...Not a pleasant experience...

Wow, you're like a green dragon or something!!!11

Matthew Sweet did a song about Total Recall? Weird.

Hey, I noticed that both you and bigevil have South Park style icons. Where can I score one of those?

Yikes!

That must have sucked beyond measure! At the same time, I bet that was pretty cool looking. Not from your POV, of course. Hope that isn't a trend with these pills.

Isn't orange juice wonderful?

Re: Yikes!

It hasn't been a trend with these pills up until today, so I'm probably safe. Something similar happened once with some echinacea I took, but it actually came apart when it was still in my mouth, so I didn't get the "cloud of dust" effect, but I did get the awful burning sensation...

And even from my POV, it did look cool, but it very much didn't feel cool...

Re: Yikes!

Kinda odd, I guess that makes you a metal dragon with two breath types, but not sure what? Which would have two different gas breaths?

I'm a big geek...

I can't find any dragon with two gas types. Probably the closest would be the gold dragon, who breathes fire and weakening gas. The other most reasonable possibility is the copper dragon, who breathes acid and slow gas.
