What we are NOT eating

Yesterday, after days of not being able to eat or drink anything, the girls and I came up with a game of sorts.  We were all probably a little feverish, very sleep deprived, and perhaps even a bit delirious as we found ourselves lying on a plastic tablecloth (vomit protection)  on the living room floor.  I unintentionally initiated the game by thinking out loud, “I am so thirsty I could drink a huge glass of ice water.”  Esme took my initiative and added on, “I am so hungry I could eat the biggest, yummiest bowl of lasagna.”  Eila caught on right away and piped in, “I’m so hungry I could eat toast, meat, sugar, and oatmeal*.”

While our sick tummies rumbled away, we spent the next half hour playing the flu food game.  I had the foresight to grab a piece of paper and pen partway through and document a few of our fantasy foods.  While the lists definitely reveal some very unrefined palates, they also gave me a good laugh.

It went something like this:

Esme: “I’m so hungry I could eat the biggest, yummiest, frostingest cinnamon roles.”

Eila: “I’m so hungry I could eat macaroni and cheese with the cheesiest cheese.”

Me: “I’m so hungy I could eat four loaves of Grandma Dorothy’s bread hot out of the oven.”

Esme: “I’m so hungry I could eat the biggest, biggest, biggest cherry cake with ballerinas dancing.”

Eila: “I’m so hungry I could eat roses and cheese.”

Me: “I’m so hungy I could eat a hot cheesy pizza the size of the living room rug.”

Esme: “I’m so hungry I could eat the biggest pink cookie.”

Eila: “I’m so hungry I could eat frosting cherries and frosting cupcakes and frosting cookies.”

Me: “I’m so hungy I could eat a twenty foot long churro.”

And then we all threw up again.
