You meet up with your friends for the first time in months. You crave your favourite Pub & Grill’s signature burger. Your eyes scan the floor. Your usual waiter is not there. The one taking your order informs you that the waiter had to move back to her hometown after the first 3 months of lockdown.
You are a bit sad, distracted; she was a really good waiter. She knew your order by heart. So you order quickly, and try to get into the conversation again. Soon, you are laughing. Having a good time. The food arrives. You can’t wait to dig in!
A few minutes in, your tongue feels a bit funny. You ask if anyone had tasted anything strange in their food. No.
Then it happens.
Your throat starts to close up.
PEANUT OIL! YOU FORGOT TO TELL THE WAITER ABOUT YOUR PEANUT ALLERGY! Your regular waiter always knew! You haven’t ordered this meal for so long, you even forgot that they use peanut oil. She knew about your allergy and always asked them to use an alternative. For some reason, your husband and friends are just standing there. Emotionless. They probably know what is going on, they know about your allergy, right? Your husband, he should definitely know? Why is he just standing there?
This is it. Your epi-pen is in the car. Your eyes are swelling shut. You can barely feel your face.
Suddenly, you sit up straight, with beads of sweat running down your face and neck.
It was only a dream
That’s it. You have had this same dream for months now. Time to do something about it – because you definitely won’t be sleeping again tonight.
