If I sound paranoid, blame Jess.
After yesterday's cryfest about not enough running and feeling sick, Jess commented, "With all that alcohol in your bloodstream, I'm surprised viruses have been able to live at all!"
I know, right?
That's what scares me.
Alcohol is a proven cleansing solution. It should be disinfecting my body. I've been following a strict consumption regimen, but to no avail. The beer is not working. But perhaps the beer is the problem. (GASP!!1! No, he didn't!)
I fear that perhaps I'm consuming the wrong kind of alcohol. Beer is not as pure of an alcohol source as, say, Johnnie Walker or Tullamore Dew is. Furthermore, beer has yeast. I'm sure the ladies out there know the dangers of yeast, and probably not a few males out there know as well.
Yeast infections are known to occur in warm and moist locations. You know, like maybe like my stomach lining? Or my sinuses? And get this: "Rarely, the yeast infection may spread throughout the body. In systemic candidal disease, up to 75 percent of people may die." Die! D-I-E.
So there you have it. I can't run today because I'm dying.
