Healed by a taco

As some of you know, I've been sick for the past week or so.
I dunno what it is. It started out kinda flu-like, but has ended up being a long drawn out period of "ohmygod-I'm-so-tired-I-can-hardly-move". Friday I went to bed at 6 in the afternoon because I just didn't have the energy to stay awake anymore.
I slept for 4 hours, and woke up with a miserable headache.

Morgen e-mailed me to ask if I'd tried Taco Bell's new "Volcano Taco" yet.
I hadn't. Since I was kind of hungry, I decided I might as well make a trip into town and give this item a try.
It is very tasty! Yum! I dunno if I'd call it "hot", though. It's more of a low medium. Still, I was pleased.
And, after I was done, I noticed that all the volcano sauce and fire sauce had loosened up my sinuses a bit.
I blew my nose, and, um, wow.

I've been sitting here for five minutes trying to think of a tactful, polite way to say "It was incredible, a whole TON of snot came out!! It was like a storm surge of snot!"
But since I can't think of any other way to say it, there you go.

The cool thing is that this made my headache go away.
I still feel extremely tired all of the time, but at least my headache is gone and my sinuses are clear.

I highly recommend the volcano taco. Even if you're a total wuss about hot things, I think you'll like these.

I fervently pray that Taco Bell catches word of your endorsement and uses it in advertising and billboards.

They should make a Volcwayne-o: same as a Volcano Taco, but made with eggs, sausage, cheese, bacon and a soft tortilla instead of a taco shell.

Oh wait, they do. All over my town! YAY FOR ME!

Janna said...

Mike: Thank you. :)

Feefifoto: Me too! Free tacos for life! I might never be sick again!

Whall: Your breakfast burritos/tacos sound good, though I bet they're not very hot or spicy. Although it is Texas, I still think they're probably mild. Are they? It's one of my pet peeves, when food makers think they have to dumb everything down so even the wimpiest palate can handle it, then they have the nerve to call it "spicy". Even so, I get hungry every time you mention these "breakfast tacos" of yours....

Evil Genius said...

I love hot spicy foods! And I'm also glad the taco healed you. Sinus headaches are the worst.

Mo said...

Memo to people who still have tastebuds: for Janna to day it is "more of a low medium" that means that it will burn a hole in the roof of your mouth while you desperately try to drink a gallon of water.

Marilyn said...

I'm glad Mo filled us on on the Janna speak... I think I'll try one but let Jasmine have her usual stuff.

Janna said...

EvilGenius: In my experience, migraines are the worst, but sinus headaches run a close second.

Morgen: Hey! I beg to differ! Really it was a VERY LOW medium. Anyone could handle one of these things. Even you. :)

Marilyn: Pay no attention to the Mo behind the curtain.

Travis said...

Wow. And actual medical reason for eating tacos. Cool.

Somewhere, somehow, in this post, there has got to be inspiration to write a song. But the words escape me at the moment.

I am sure it is there though.

You can work on this one.

Later Y'all.

I love anything that clears out your sinuses. Sinus headaches are as bad as migraines.

Srsly, someone should let Taco Bell know about this!

XUP said...

It's the equivalent of a good schwitz -- loosens up all the blocked sinuses, lets the snot flow freely. Spice is good for a lot of inflammatory illnesses. As Hyppocrates said: let food be your medicine and medicine be your food. (glad you're better)

Janna said...

Travis: Pretty cool, huh?

Melon: A song about being healed by a taco? Well... couldn't be much different from a lot of the country music out there.

WillThink4Wine: If you do, tell them the lava sauce needs to be hotter. :)

Xup: I'm afraid to ask what a schwitz is...
