1969 Tribute to Apollo XI ref. 145.022

William Blake’s oft-quoted saying goes, “The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.” Well I’ve sojourned down that path many times but found the ultimate destination frustratingly elusive. The problem is that I don’t deal with limitations. Which explains why I once ate so many California rolls that I lost consciousness.

I’m serious. Before I could afford the more erudite Edo style sushi, my thing was all you can east Japanese buffets. And my philosophy was simple. Baring the outbreak of a Salmonella epidemic, I wasn’t going to step away from the table until I thought I was about to lose consciousness. Yep, in buffet terms I was Chuck Yeager pushing the outside of the envelope each time I took to the proverbial skies.

Finally, either as a result of severe dehydration — can’t waste stomach capacity on water — or all the blood rushing from my head to help my faltering digestive system, I actually saw stars and blacked out. Awakening to see two perplexed emergency medical service team members, looking down at me, I croaked out, “Don’t close my tab, I think I can take down a couple more!”

I'm always interested in reading watch reviews, particularly when the reviewer devotes the first three paragraphs on passing out at a Chinese buffet.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
