Through an odd set of coincidental circumstances, I ate spicy tuna roll for dinner last night, a tuna sandwich for lunch today, and a tuna steak for dinner tonight. It didn't occur to me until I was finished with dinner that I had eaten tuna for every meal for the last 24 hours.
I now feel itchy, my skin is red, and I'm swollen. OK, one could argue that I'm always swollen, but whatever. I couldn't take a nap today (insomnia) and I've felt excessively shy today. Clearly I am suffering from mercury poisoning. It's ironic that I worry constantly about being healthy and living longer than my father, only to OD on tuna of all things. Tuna.
I leave this world with many regrets. I never did learn how to tie a true knot; I can only tie your basic shoe. I'm afraid of curling irons and have to close my eyes while getting my hair done. I also have never been to Walt Disney World.
If I make it through this, I vow to change things. Learn to tie. Learn to be confident. Go to Disney World.
