I was trying very hard to let my future in-laws have a good impression of me at our first time meeting. Janice's Grandma started to cook dinner in the kitchen long before the dinner time. Since the cocktail party started at about four pm, everyone had a drink in their hand. I kept a glass in my hand as well. I tried only a small sip once in a while, but quickly I knew that I was going to be in trouble. After a couple of hours, with an empty stomach, I started to have problems. First I had to go to the bathroom to throw up, then more problems arose continuously and I had to stay in the bathroom. The more I tried to come out normally, the worse it got! What a first dinner with the future in-laws!
Janice's Grandma asked me if I liked her vegetable, which was peas. Of course , I loved it! As you can imagine, I had a lot of peas over the years later!
