Happy Canadagnzzzzzz….

MADE TO ORDER Canada House - Maple Leaf - Red WhiteCeramic Canada House by thelittlereddoor

***Keep your eyes peeled for this adorable house on The D.A.D. Project***

It was going to be a laid back Canada Day from the get-go — meeting up with a couple of friends, going to see/hear some live music during the day…

We went for a bite mid-afternoon, during which I asked for a virgin Caesar (for non-Canucks, it’s similar to a bloody mary, I’m told). A few sips in, I started feeling funny. After some investigation, turns out the drink wasn’t so virgin. And I’m allergic to alcohol. Not anaphylactic or keel-over allergic… More like speeding heart rate, beet-red flushed face, shortness of breath, hysterical laughter, then passing out allergic.

I’d only taken in a third of the drink, not enough to induce the entire parade of symptoms… but I moved immediately to water and felt a little in-the-clouds for the rest of the meal.

I got home at around 5 p.m., crrrrashed! shortly after, then awoke a little before 10 p.m., just in time to hear the fireworks blasting off downtown. Ah well, in all honesty, I hadn’t made concrete plans to go see them anyway.

So… part of me thinks I should call the manager of the resto to let them know what happened.

Or would I be making a mountain of a molehill?
