    Went to a Thai restaurant last night for the gf's brother's bday. Ordered the "Red Chicken Curry" at a heat level of 4 (scale of 2 to 10). I'm pretty sure that the chef read the "4" as a "9", because I've never been so close to dying in my entire life. My ears were sweating. Curry is a different kind of spicy. I can eat hot wings. I like chili that has a bite to it. This was not like those things. It assaulted the back of my throat with a vengeance. I was literally choking at one point, but felt like I should force myself to finish it, considering the future father-in-law was paying. That wasn't the worst part. Halfway through the meal, after 6 or 7 Diet Coke refills, I took what was going to be the last bite. I had decided to throw in the towel. I chewed quickly, swallowed even faster and reached for a drink. As I did, one of those "you don't even have enough time to cover your mouth" sneezes snuck up on me. It brought the evil spices into my nasal cavity. The pain in the back of my throat, which had previously felt like someone was trying to iron wrinkles out of it, paled in comparison to the 3rd degree burns I now have in my sinuses. My nose was running like it stole something.

    I will not get into specifics regarding the current state of my digestive tract. Suffice it to say that I need to pick up some gauze pads and a tourniquet on the way home from work today.

    I will never, ever, eat curry again.

    Sounds like good training in what to expect when you get acid reflux in the middle of the night.

    Takes some getting used to. I ate a lot of Thai while in Berlin. Seen quite a few "I can eat anything GI's" nearly kill themselves. Like any cuisine there are levels.. try again, this time go a little lower on that chef's scale.

    Curry, Marsala, etc, is very variable. Most homes (mom's) have their own recipe, tailored to their family/taste. Like biscuits, or stews, or other family favorites.

    You probably needed a good flushing anyway. Consider it scheduled maintenance. I am sure I don't want to know the answer to this. Where do you apply the tourniquet?

    I don't consider suffering through my meal as good dining.

    If the future FIL needs impressing that much just tell him to meet you out in the parking lot...

    It would probably be a lot less painful!

    I love Thai curry. I'm happiest when the waiter comes back and says, "You want it extra-hot or you want it Thai hot?" Thai hot please. If you're not sweating and tearing up they didn't do it right. Same for Indian curry.

    Sissy. Although when it comes to heat most people are kinda sissys compared to my tolerances. Love super spicy food, delicious. Although my intestines dont like it very much.

    Considering the meal was last night, and the original post was at 10:43 this morning....we should be getting a new thread asking how to treat anal burns here shortly....or perhaps a simple plumbing question.

    It wasn't really about impressing him. It was a relatively expensive restaurant, and I always feel like a freeloader because they always pay. I felt like it would have been disrespectful to not at least try to finish it.

    Good stuff...now you are on your way to enjoying hot foods!
    Congratulations.
    I started out a bit like that too many years ago, thinking that wasabi was something else and chugging a big spoonful of it...my dining companion told me that my eyes squirted tears about 6 ft...I do remember grabbing the tablecloth to cover my face and scooting everything onto the floor..........
    Today I eat that stuff on bagels for breakfast, I buy Tabasco in gallon containers about once a month and ate the atomic wings at Quaker Steak no problemo. Everything I eat has at least habanero level hot sauce on it now. Everything.

    Again, I'm trying not to be too disgusting here, but the word "chapped" does not do "it" justice. :whistling:
