Soul food

the sedentary life Add comments

The other day for our safety celebration we had soul food. On celebrations we all pick a place to eat and someone goes to pick it up and bring it back to the shop so the group can celebrate as a whole. To my surprise the place serving the food had ox tail. Always adventurous and never afraid to try anything in the states I decided to give this ox tail a try. Who knew this soul food would weigh 4 lbs and fill the entire plastic to go container. Nevertheless I decided to give the food a try. I wasn’t disappointed but as time went on each of my coworkers gave up and decided to save the food for later. Determined I was, I chose not to keep the food for later and made a final push to finish it. Over 70% of the guys could not finish their food and here I was stuffing and putting ALL the food down. Needless to say in the end the food put the hurt on me. 30 minutes later and I was already in food coma state. I remember everyone still walking around in the shop and talking when I fell asleep. 20 minutes later I woke up and continued with my normal job tasks. In the afternoon as I left the shop my stomach was still the same size it was right after I ate. This food didn’t digest one bit! All that grease must have prevented my stomach from digesting the food. After I got home that night I was still full and couldn’t think of eating a thing. 8:30pm I finally ate half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You know what, that’s all I ate for the rest of the night. The next day after I got to work I still felt full. I don’t think I’m going to try that again for a LONG time. The feeling of discomfort for the rest of the day and night was enough to keep me away from soul food.

BTW, ox tail is pretty good, but I would probably stay away from it for awhile.
