The answer is yes, you can!
On my first night in Rhode Island, the magazine sent me out to this super fancy restaurant where, I’m not kidding, for 3 of us, the bill was over $1,000. I was like, I’m in Rhode Island, and New England is all about seafood and such, so I may as well try oysters on the half-shell. There are oyster bars all over Rhode Island. It seemed like a cultural rite of passage.
So, this was also a 7 course meal… Ya, it was nuts.
And after getting home I was like… Wow, I’m full. Really really full, like, my tummy is bloated beyond belief full…
And as I laid in bed and was like… Something is wrong. I started getting chills. I could feel my mouth getting really clammy (forgive the pun)
I was feeling a bit like this:
Suddenly, I knew it was coming. I had passed the point of no return.
I ran to the bathroom and puked my guts out. AND it even came out of my nose! I was so sick. And I couldn’t stop throwing up. And again and again it kept coming up even through my nose! It was the grossest moment of my life. I felt horrible.
However, I was there for work. I had a job to do. I had many more restaurants to visit and things to do. So, after puking my guts out all night, I brushed my teeth, took a shower, and headed out for breakfast!
The life of a traveler.
I will say, after that awful night, I ended up having an amazing time in Rhode Island, and highly recommend it! (just avoid the oysters!)
