Just My Luck

Last night, watching the news – and I use the term “news” in the loosest terms – I got hooked by a terrible hook. What’s in your refrigerator that could make you sick!? Oh good grief. Another scare-tactic hook. I usually flip the channel. We have one news station here that is really terrible about the cheeseball dramatic hooks. But for some reason last night I decided to listen. I wish I hadn’t.

Don’t eat packaged spinach! But spinach is my favorite vegetable! I’ve been buying it like crazy lately. And what did I have for dinner last night? A spinach and shrimp salad from Applebee’s! And I’m sure they used packaged spinach. Nick picked Applebee’s. It’s not on my list of places to eat. How long does it take for E. Coli to attack?

Hey…I wonder if he knew about this and was just trying to off me? Hmmm…



  1. Why the hell would I do that? You’re my favorite person. You think I want to be stuck here on this planet full of morons by myself? Hell no!

    I love you.

    Yeah, don’t mention the fact that I’ll get the West Nile.

    Awww. I was teasing honey.

  2. Uh oh, you better watch out. I bet he knew what you would order. And I hate those news shows too. Everything is bad for you everything will give you cancer. We’re all going to die a horrible death. I get it. Well, I hope your okay. Tell Nick to let us know if something tragic happens. 🙂

  3. I didn’t want to mention anything but Nick is moving to Pennsylvania. And this was just the easiest way to get rid of you. HA!!! Kidding of course.

    Yea, I try not to watch that stuff either. I guess the best thing is just to grow your own veggies. But who has time for that??

    That would be a good plot to get rid of me…stuff me full of E. Coli laced spinach. I would never suspect…

  4. I got really sick and had to leave work Wednesday. But I attributed it to some Cool Whip I’d eaten the night before. Which had an expiration date of like May.

    GAG! I can’t believe YOU of all bachelors would eat expired Cool Whip!

  5. that news hit my area too, but later they went back and said it’s actually only in the states, even though the spinach we get here comes from the states. i’m not buying any for a week or so, just in case.

  6. Yeah, that was big headline news. I put it on my blog too, guess we had a mind meld. I betcha a bunch of people will get symptoms just from the power of suggestion!

    Don’t worry. I’m sure that stuff at applebees has been sitting around in their kitchen since way before the E. coli stuff. 🙂

    LOL! Like I said, not my choice. Nick gets to pick once a month.

  7. A spinach and shrimp salad from Applebee’s?? Are you out of your mind? You better be hoping that the e coli from the spinach takes care of the shrimp mojo. Repeat after me: we do not eat previously frozen, overly thawed rubber shrimp at chain restaurants.

    But I know what you mean- spinach is a staple, for Pete’s sake!

  8. Wonder whatever happened to Popeye?

  9. It’s a sad time for spinach lovers…
    You can hardly even get it here because of the outbreak. Its a Californian company that they’ve linked the e-coli back to!
    How about squash?

  10. I was thinking, now is a real good time to have my mother in law over for hearty spinach salad and spinach lasagna….

  11. I shall love my spinach forever, regardless. I hate the scare tactic stuff too..why can’t they just do some feel good stories??

  12. I made spinach lasagna last week, so I freaked a little when I heard that too. We’re all still alive & not sick here though!
