My brother bought a burger for me when he went out to get himself lunch a little while ago. I asked for a double cheeseburger with no onions, because I'm very sensitive to the sulfur compounds in raw onions—they cause my sinuses great distress.

I got the double cheeseburger all right, but not only were there onions, there was so much onion that I could barely taste anything else. Even after scraping all of the onion off, the residual smell and flavor were too much—and now I've got the beginnings of what is promising to be a doozy of a sinus headache.

I don't blame my brother; I trust him when he says he ordered it without onions. He knows I won't bite his head off for making a mistake. No, I blame the idiot at the fast food place. Hey, dumb-ass! When someone says "no onions", they mean it!

... dumb-ass ...

*Since I am a militant agnostic ("I don't know, and you don't either!"), I've decided that, when I feel the social or rhetorical need to invoke a supernatural power, I'm most comfortable invoking Ceiling Cat, since he a) is obviously imaginary, even to those who have faith in other supposed deities, and b) mostly doesn't make religious folk go "OMG! EEEEEVILLLLLL!!!"

Your invocation of Ceiling Cat made me chuckle. Thank you for that!

It sounds like you have a food allergy to sulfur. Do you have problems eating hardboiled eggs? Merely curious... .

I'm sorry that I will likely have to miss your solo show tonight. If you haven't been following my blog, I have 3 projects that are due the last day of the semester: May 21. Additionally, I'm going to lose a big chunk of Sunday too a mandatory Comic-Con committee meeting.

(My hand moved my mouse and selected "post comment" without my consciousness above.) I hope you have a good show and a lot of donations.

Actually, no. No problem at all with eggs of any kind, or chicken. Which is why I think it's a sensitivity rather than an allergy.

Good luck with your projects. I completely understand about tonight. :)
