Stopping at bed and breakfasts through the rural countryside on our honeymoon brought us to coast. My wife wanted to spend one night at a romantic Oceanside resort. Dinner was planned at a restaurant famous for its seafood. Unfortunately there was a line “around the block”. Eager to spend some time site seeing we decided to visit another seafood restaurant close by and not so busy. About half way through the meal I felt full. A few minutes later I realized I was getting sick. By the time we got out the door my stomach was bloated, hard as a rock. I felt terrible.
Nauseated by the time we arrived at our room I tried to throw-up but to no avail. No luck with a bowel movement either. I tried everything to get out whatever was inside: it was spoiling a tender night with my bride. In misery, I moaned and groaned all night.
My lovely wife must have thought me being sick on our honeymoon was funny as she giggled all night long.
By morning I was feeling somewhat better, health-wise. But my ego wasn’t feeling too good and it even worse when we heard through the thin wall from the next room, “Did you hear all that moaning and groaning and giggling going on next door?” To which a solemn male voice replied, “Oh, they’re on their honeymoon.”
My “Hmph” only brought more giggles.
PS – yes, we are still wonderfully married, almost 25 years now but I seldom miss an opportunity to remind her of her romantic “giggling” nor she reminding me about my romantic “nausea”.
