Finding the Positive

So this is what I'm trying to do because guess what? I think I have food poisoning, Either that or the flu and I'm going with food poisoning because that's shorter lived right?
We had the most awesome sushi last night. In this gorgeous Japanese restaurant in a beautiful part of Athens. It was so yummy. I've been thinking of tuna since we got here. Sushi is never far from my mind. I didn't give into it though until I had eaten all the feta and tomato salads (which were delicious) that I could. Only when I felt we had eaten enough Greek food to have a feeling for it did we ask our very favorite guy at the front desk Marios for a good Japanese restaurant recommendation. He of course hooked us up with an awesome one and called us a cab that had an American driver named Jeff. Marc and Jeff hit it off right away, if we had met him before last night I'm sure we would have been hanging with him. Anyway, the food was awesome, restaurant super cool. Today I feel awful. Stomach's a mess, shaky, slight fever, the whole nine yards. The only thing I ate that Marc didn't were these big hunks of tuna, the rarest, almost still swimming tuna. There was enough for both of us but he saw the delight in my eyes and gave me all of it.
So let's get to the positive part. This is our last day here. We had already decided we were totally chillin' on the rooftop today. It's super hot, we've done a lot of stuff and we really just wanted to relax. Also we got the killer spot up here with comfy couches to lie on and it's shady, which I need. It's only two floors from our room. They have gingerale. We both have good books. And had we gone to that restaurant tonight I might have had to travel feeling like this. So all in all, I'm thinking how lucky I am that things played out the way they did.

Poor Amy! (Pat-pat on your shoulder included.) Have any threelac along? Take 5-7 packets right away or get to the local market for Lactobacillus acidophilus - sounds Greek, they should know just what you're after.
