I knew I shouldn’t click on the article, simply because I eat out a lot (especially now, while I’m on the road) and I was expecting the worst. I was right, it was grim. “A lot of poor, transient people work in restaurants… They’re not giving up the $100 they’d make in a shift because they’re sick.”
On the bright side, it must be strengthening my antibodies. And I learned a couple of handy tips.
1. Be wary of ‘specials’ – they might be old leftovers buried under gravy or sauce.
2. Eating out on a Monday? It may be the quieter option, but it’s also leftover night.
3. Dinner at a casual restaurant may be a more fatty experience than buying a burger, because butter is often used liberally in dishes.
Bottom line: Can’t wait to get home, have a kitchen, visit the supermarket, and cook my own nice stuff again without having to worry about snot in my soup. Just a few more weeks…
