Mr. Gastro gone - new visitors arrived...
Adelaide, South Australia
I wasn't gonna write another little story about Adelaide, but the last few days have been quiet entertaining. I also figured that my Hubby H. would appreciate a funny story like that....
So Mr. Gastro lasted a few days. Normally they say 24h, it passes right through you...! Well not for everybody. There is a Gasto- Male version, where it actually lasts 1 week, but man can still eat and do everything else. Just can't help and have to rest a lot. Similar to man-flu...
Anyway, I woke up Monday morning and Nat sat me down straight away and said: " I have to tell you something. It will affect you and all the family"
My heart dropped as I didn't expect anything bad on this perfect trip.
" well, ..." she said..." I have worms, and that means we will all have or get them!"
What, I mean- what the f.....! Seriously? I will die. My body is full of worms? Honestly!!??? Just the thought of it made me super sick.
Nat had already bought worming tabs in the pharmacy...so we all had to take 1 tab and in 2 weeks another one. All worms would get killed and come out. Nice one. Great.
Asked a few time, if she was sure. She was 100% positive, she saw 1!
I read the leaflet a few times and saw, that if we had not "pinworms" , but hookworms, or whatever-worms, we had to take 2 tabs a day for 3 days.
So off we went and bought 4 more packs of those amazing ( with orange flavor, thanks for that- it really helps) worming pills.
The kids got told they were vitamins tabs. Just so they would not go crazy.
We took off all the bedding, and wanted to start the big washing action.
Well, wanted to- UNFORTUNATELY the washing machine broke down.
So poor sick Gastro Andre - who actually ( finally ) started puking, by the thought of worms- had to repair the washing machine.
He found the reason after half a day putting the machine apart, but had to order a piece, which will arrive on saturday.
So Nat and I packed all our washing, 3 big black plastic bags, and drove to a laundry or in Aussie "laundromat...."!
Very funny, very 80s. Sat there, read magazines and took stupid pics as we were alone. I even crawled into a huge tumble, laughing so much, I hardly could get out. Only saw 10 mins later that there was actually a camera in that shop. So hopefully they won't arrest me now....!
Well, after serious and careful checking of our daily outcomes, we can now say, that NONE of us has worms. Thats the only reason i can tell this story, otherwise i would not have said a word, ever.
Nat must have seen something else on Monday morning, but not a worm....!
