Survived my first PB! Woo Hoo!

Just had my first PB and it was gross. Soooo I thought I would share it with you all, since this seems the place to do so! Not that you asked!!  If you read my last post you know  that my Dad is very ill, home bound and being a bit of a difficult P.I.T.A. He pretty much only eats when either my sister or me cook something for him and serve it to him. No problem. My pleasure. If that is what makes him happy at this point I am here to do it.  So I went to the deli and picked up some nice Honey Ham, Super Sharp Cheddar and some nice bakery style bread and decided to make him a grilled ham and cheese. So, I am standing there assembling the H & C sandwich and decide to pop a piece of ham in my mouth….chew once or twice then swallow. What could be more normal right? WRONG! Maybe pre band that would be normal but not now. So, I first felt the pain, then the slimy part (eww) and then it happened. (yes I made it to the bathroom) Up it came. Just when I thought that would be it, and I resumed my kitchen duties, here it came again. Twice. Ugh. Not fun. I felt horrible afterward. I am glad I was home and not at a restaurant.

So, I sit here on my Dad’s home computer circa 1998 and write this to you. He only ate about two bites of the sandwich. Poor guy.

Anyway, I am heading home soon to share the whole experience with my husband. He just got home today from a week long business trip and I am sure he will be thrilled to hear my PB story too!

Thanks for letting me share...cause you know what they say; Sharing is Caring!


  1. I am sorry to hear about your father!

    I am glad that though you experienced your first PB...I know you were worried about it!

    Not so bad huh?

  2. Yeah, first PB sucks but at the same time there is a bit of "the badge of honor" that it finally happened. Like you joined a new club of weird sorts! I had a really bad one yesterday on beets, and let me just tell you that is not fun! Imagine slime but RED! EWWW!! Sorry again to hear about your Dad Linda. I'll keep you in my thoughts.

  3. Thanks for the blow by blow so I know what to do when it happens to me. Funny, it really is a a new club, where we rejoice in sharing the most weird experiences. Only other bandsters would understand. You hubby will probably be grossed out, but they did promise for better or for worse.

    Sorry about your dad and hope he improves with eating. He's lucky to have you close by.

  4. Hi...Just found your blog from Tj's and just want to say that I hope your father is ok. I had an awful PB episode with ham as well....YUKKO!!! I ;look forward to following your journey.

  5. I hope you dad is doing better this week. I know you are really busy now, but I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for an award. Check out my blog for details.
