So, last week when I was sick, the SO was sure it was food poisoning.  I thought it didn't hurt enough for that.  But he didn't want to sleep in the spare bedroom.  I had to force him to go, because I didn't want to trip over him on my way to the bathroom (since I sleep on the other side of the bed).  He tried to sneak back in twice, but I was sleeping so lightly I tossed him out again.  He finally came in again at about 12:30 am that first night, and argued that I hadn't been sick in a hour, and he wanted to sleep in his own bed, he was afraid he'd miss the alarm clock for work (even though I told him I'd call the house phone line from my cell, or his cell from the house phone, when it went off).

It took me until Wednesday to get better.  Lost 10 pounds in 3 days, and have had a delicate stomach since then, so I only gained 4 back. 

Now it's 1 week later, to the day.  Almost to the minute (off by about 7 hours)... and the bathroom is having deja vu.  Yep, he's sick.  Pretty much just like me.  

But it's not a virus, no... it was the McDonald's Chicken Club he had for lunch, because "he never eats at Mickey D's, and it's because he ate there."

Right.

At least he knows it should be a short, brutal illness.  Of course, I was violently sick for... 10 hours.  And he just started at 8 pm, so I think he might be up all night.

And am I sleeping in the spare bedroom?  Damn straight!

I had the exact same thing! I, too, thought it was food poisoning, because me and my kick-ass immune system managed to beat it over one very long, very harrowing night of bad dreams and constant nausea and sleeping on the floor by the toilet.

The next day? I found out that my sister and my mother, whom I'd been hanging out with two days before, BOTH had it. And worse than I did. Your poor SO is in for a looong night, huh? :D
