I Scream For Ice Cream
Literally....I scream. I don't know what it is, but if I eat ice cream after 6pm, I will have a nightmare. In response to my football team's embarrassing loss in the playoffs, I ate a Dairy Queen cookie dough blizzard. It was a weak moment. I'm sorry.
Here's the thing, I only had about four bites, but nevertheless, it was nightmare city in the bedroom! And not just any nightmare - like the kind that make you go check that the doors are locked when you wake up. The kind where you find yourself smack dab in the middle of a 24 episode, only Jack Bauer isn't there to save you.
The ridiculous thing about all of this? As I was tasting the creamy goodness of the ice cream, I said to myself, "I'm going to have a nightmare tonight." That begs the question: why did you eat it in the first place? I have no reasonable answer to that question. But I do know this - I think this last experience scared me away from late night ice cream...for a while...
What foods don't agree with you before bedtime?
