I had ramen for dinner last night. If you’ve been following along, you know that ramen frequently gives me the poops. This was the first time I’ve had ramen in over a year, so I was a bit apprehensive. My dining companion knew about my history with ramen so she was totally understanding that I would not linger long after dinner.
I ordered a fairly standard ramen with pork broth, bbq pork, an egg, and delicious noodles. It was very tasty and I ate it all up in short order. Once my meal was done however, I stayed for a polite amount of time before paying and going straight home. I didn’t experience any problems on the way back and felt quite satisfied actually. About an hour after eating and while I was at home, I felt a need to pass gas, which resulted in a large movement of air. I was afraid this was signaling something more sinister to come but surprisingly the rest of the evening was uneventful.
This was the first time I’ve had ramen in about two years that did not result in explosive and urgent poops. Did I just get lucky? Dare I try testing fate again? Ramen is pretty tasty, so maybe it’s worth the risk.
