Upset Stomach?

Not from Thai food.

overcast 85 °F

When I got to the airport, I found I had an hour or two to spare before my plane boarded. I thought I'd walk around and check out what the stores had to offer. Soon, I was having uncomfortable pain in my abdomen. Oh no, I thought, it is never good to have GI issues in a place that only has public bathrooms. My mind raced back over the foods that I had eaten that day. Was is something at the Floating Market or at the local lunch place? What could it have been? Then it dawned on me. Right before heading to the airport, my friend and I had stopped at Starbucks. I ordered a iced tea, but they misunderstood and gave me a iced tea latte... It's not the first time that I've forgotten that I'm lactose intolerant. Ha, so I had a little laugh -- with all the street food that I ate in Thailand, it's Starbucks that gave me indigestion. Knowing what it was made me feel better and the pain soon went away.

Lesson of the day: watch what you eat (and drink), even at the Western chain places!
