Now, I don’t want to totally embarrass him, but, he is the world’s biggest baby when he is sick. I really hope some of you ladies out there can relate with me on this.
I was fighting off allergies and a little cold, but I carried on.
My husband had a head cold and you would swear to God that he had been stabbed and was dying and needed to be rushed to the hospital.
True story: One time, we both had the flu at the same time. Which in reality means that he had the flu and I was forced into early recovery in order to take care of him. I was laying on the couch when Mike ran to the bathroom. He said he was going to puke. (Sorry guys, I’ll try and spare you the gory details). I went to go check on him because I heard some loud thumps coming from the bathroom. He was kneeling in front of the toilet stomping his feet on the ground shouting “I need to go to the hospital! This isn’t right!” There was no puke anywhere to be seen. I had to walk away to hide my laughter. He was totally better the next day.
This is my life.
So, when he was sick most recently, I had to spend most of my time picking up his tissues and talking him down from calling an ambulance. I didn’t have much time to cook, that is why I was glad to have all of this cooked shrimp left over from my Mad Men post so I could make a quick Asian Shrimp Roll for myself.
If you have some left-over cooked shrimp or need a quick Lenten Friday night dinner, please give this a try.
