The whole time I was ordering I was thinking to myself, what is wrong with me? This is not going to go well. You know you are going to be sick after eating this. This is not a healthy option. And to make matters worse I was ordering Chinese at the grocery store….so I decided to pick up few other items. Jim is out of town this weekend, so I thought I needed some snack foods. I picked up a bag of whole wheat tortilla chips and some queso too.
Anyway, I got home and ate my dinner. I only ate about half of it and I was immediately regretting my decision. I threw the rest of my dinner away and almost forgot about the fortune cookie (I don’t like the taste of fortune cookies and I never eat them…but I do like to read my fortune). I opened the fortune cookie and it read “Your body is for use; not abuse”. Seriously!! Holy Crap! I couldn’t believe it. Why didn’t I read that before dinner? This is one of the best fortunes ever and so completely true. I had just abused my body and I knew it. There was nothing healthy in that food, and I knew after not eating meat for months it was not going to agree with me, but I did it anyway, because I was “craving” it. This is my new motto….thank you Mr. Universe, or Confucius or whoever….I got the message. I felt bad the rest of the night and still felt like poo this morning. I fought the urge to throw up during my entire 1 hour bike this morning. No more Chinese for me.
This is not the first time I have received a message from the universe. When will I ever learn? In January I was "craving" some chocolate so I purchased some M&Ms at my work cafeteria only to have the cash register display read that I had purchased “1 King Sized Ass”. This is not a joke. I’m serious. Jim even blogged about it. You can read the story here if you want to (it’s a short one).
So, ever received a message from the Universe? Did you listen?
