Dear to Whom It May Concern:
I believe I had an encounter with bad egg salad this afternoon after teaching a class about discernment. Considering Ignatius of Loyola's rules for discernment of spirits:
Could nausea ever mean something other than discernment of a bad spirit? Is a cigar sometimes just a cigar? What if the cigar causes the nausea? What if a cigar was in the egg salad? Can one smoke an egg? Does the nausea come from my soul? My warmed-over egg? My blog? Please, how can I tell?
Just wondering. Off to the restroom now. Please advise stat.
p.s. I just had a flu shot, if that helps.
