Had an extremely bad case of food poisoning when I was in Goa in 1985. Probably ate the wrong food in Pune before getting on the bus to Goa.
Went to a chemists who gave me some pills. Advice was - take 2 per day, one in the morning and one in the evening. If you take more than that per day you could go blind or have liver failure!!!

Still living and kept to the advice.

(My Dad didn't like Beerman - he was too (get this!) NICE!)

WTF?!!!

Heading off topic i know, but I think we need Beermans version of this story....

It's twue, it's twue.

The first time Daddy Isa and I met (pre-marriage), I drove them to the airport for their Christamas vacation. Picked 'em up a week late, helped make dinner that night, then made breakfast the next day. I made the mistake of having only wine (what, no BEER?) with dinner, and apparently he wasn't keen on homemade blueberry pancakes. He made us take him to the airport 5 hours early. It was after that episode that he told Isa that "He's too nice. It'll be a big mistake if you marry him..."

He took us both to Negril after we were married. Isa ate a bug and was down for 2 days. What do you say to a man who doesn't like you? My solution was two-fold: a) keep the beer flowing (through both of us), and b)rather than check out the bikinis on the beach all day, check on the sicky every half hour....all day. This seemed to impress Daddy Isa, so much so that he paid for me to parasail in gale force winds. I still suspect he was hoping the rope broke and I'd wind up in Cuba.......but he thought I was OK after that.

On topic, I've never had any major boo-boos abroad that required a doctor. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.....

What weird kinky sex games do you play?

Actually, they normally involve a lama, 3 bags of gravel, a pot plant, a bowl of pink custard and a blow up lawyer, but thats another story

I must interject briefly at this moment to clarify that the llama in question is NOT the llama-not-named-Tina. I'm sure Gelli is a very nice guy, but the L.N.N.T. is not a fan of pink custard.

Make that a week later - Beerman was not late picking us up - he was right on time, but driving my car since he had an RX-7 - too small for 3 people and luggage. That didn't go over well either - the driving my car part. Families... Everybody's got them, but not always sure what to do with them...

So right you are my dear!! Bad fingers...

And as for that last idea....I'm thinking braised with sherry and fresh root vegetables, and a light chianti....

Sounds good - nice with the root veggies since fava beans are not tops on my list as edible anything! ;)

Sorry - now we return you to the regularly scheduled thread topic...

...with one slight clarification first...

what about the sheep?

There`s nothing Kinky that i can do with sheep. It`s all just normal fulfilment. The only vaguely kinky thing is when you have outdoor threesomes near an electric fence, but that`s more sad than kinky, and, well, urm, suffices to say that you need a good supply of mint sauce handy

And L.N.N.T., thank you for the clarification. I can confirm that it is a different llama(s) involved.

And now, really, now we return you to the regularly scheduled thread topic...

Sheep, llamas, fathers-in-law aside,

the best I can do is spectacularly skidding my moped on a sand covered corner on Koh Tao and landing about 1ft away from a solid 6ft wall. I nearly K.O'd the moped, when it happened I looked like I'd been attacked by demented flesh eating dwarves and I have a fantastic scar on my left knee from being stitched up (in both senses of the words) by the local medical centre.
