Instant illness

Hi everyone,
- I'm back to (almost) normal after 24 hours totally out of it. (co-inciding with the big system dropout, so I didn't miss much )
Wife and I went out for dinner Fri. evening and shared 3 menu options (ie, ate exactly the same thing) about 3 hours later I felt queasy, then really tired and went to bed early, got up at 3am and threw up everything. In the morning I had a splitting headache, all my joints sore,especially knees and ankles, and very lethargic. Slept mostly the whole Saturday , only drank water and aspirin. (wife felt fine through all this). Today I woke up totally fine, (just missing a day of my life). -Any ideas what may have caused this ??
Thanks for any clues, nomind

I'm by far no doctor but it sounds like a 24 hour flu. Glad to hear your ok now.

My guess is that is just a 24 hour bug.

Charlie, What did you have to drink with, and before and after dinner? You could have a mild case of brown bottle flu. LOL. Hope you are feeling better.

The only thing I had that the wife didn't was a pint of "Rickard's Red". I look upon that as 'medicine' in the purest sense

This may be a silly question but what in the world is "brown bottle flu"?

It's an illness associated with the bending of an elbow which in turn tips a brown bottle in the hand towards your mouth. This condition worsens as the number of repetitions increase.
Too much beer. LOL

Majak, you're a wise man,
-on many Friday nights, I would have gone to the neighbourhood watering hole to play a few games of NTN and quaff a couple of jugs. This particular night we were pretty much snowed under, and I decided it was safer to keep a low profile at home. This is one reason the wife is so surprised I was violently sick.
-of course, this may be construed as - 'well dear, I didn't get my usual tonic'

back to normal now, Charlie,
