Gout and Chips
I've been testing restaurants for days now. The feature I'm working on is focused on a type of food that is extremely fatty and meat focused. I think I ate so many ribs yesterday it gave me nightmares. No really, I had horrible dreams full of meaty products that glistened with menace.
It reminds me faintly of that scene in Matilda where the kid is forced to eat all the chocolate cake as punishment but manages it and wins. Except I'm not winning, instead I'm feeling rather unwell from eating so much BBQ sauce and chips. Still tonight is the last day of it, by sun-down I will have eaten at the last place I need to and I can enter a whole new world of eating habits where a chap can have a light salad for a meal, or possibly something interesting on wholemeal toast.
Still, even with the rather strange diet it is a rather fun job, I wonder how one gets this as a regular gig.
