Should You Always Get Back on the Horse??

There is a market near our house that sells these things called Kathi Rolls... Adam's favorite is the Egg Chicken Roll. It's pretty much a tortilla with Egg, Chicken, some green stuff (cabbage & stuff), ketchup & spices... Adam loves them! He loves them so much, that when we had some Fun Vols in town, he decided to take them to eat some Kathi Rolls (street food, a risky move)... Well, we all ate one or two (except for one girl - Erica) and EVERYONE (but Erica) got sick!!! Some got sicker than others... Adam was sick for about 2 months - it was pretty bad.
Well, now that we are back in South Asia, Adam has really wanted another Kathi Roll :) He said: "It's like riding a horse, if you fall off, you just have to get back on and keep riding"... So he decided that to get over his fear of Kathi Rolls from before, he needed to just eat another one :) So he did...
Well, needless to say, he's sick again :) So, the question is.... "Should You Always Get Back on the Horse??"

Some horses are better left not ridden! Or something like that! I hope you feel better Adam!

Kelley said...

Oh Adam- its not worth it! I hope you get better much quicker this time around.

Maybe you could only half way ride the horse....leave the chicken out. :) I see so many good looking foods on the streets here, but am too chicken of getting sick. :) Joyce

I agree - not worth it! Maybe you could learn to make them with potassium permanganate-d cabbage. :) James used to eat golgo paa (not sure how to spell it) ALL THE TIME. Even the Indians would lecture him on not eating that from the cart. :) HOpe he's not sick for 2 months this time!! My doctors always said the viral stuff is worse in the winter (hence my need for hospitalization in Dec 07 :) I say it's year round. :)

oh no.
i think its the uncooked veggies and also the chicken that gets contaminated. the roti with egg should be safer.
in anycase...hope he's getting better.

OH, now I'm so worried, its not like you have alot of weight to lose. No, don't get back on that horse again. Is it that loose motion stuff?

Erin G said...

you know, even after reading about ow adam is sick.. AGAIN.. these things still look good to me. apparently I am a masochist of some sort. :)

wonder if I can get an UNcontamiated one at our indian restaurant? I have never seen it on the menu. wonder if it's just a street thing?

hope he feels better!

Deanna said...

So sorry!

Carrie said...

Yikes - I hope he feels better faster than before. Now if he tries them again something's wrong...

Arnold and Joy said...

Are these rolls not making other people sick too? How is this guy still in business?

Aarmel said...

Oh! Poor Adam! That's so miserable...
