“So what takeaway do you have after this,” Brian’s mother said as she sat with him in the bathroom while he was kneeling over the toilet bowl. She held a cool washcloth across his forehead with one hand as she rubbed his back sympathetically with the other.

Brian took a deep breath as he tried to control the spasms in his belly. “I learned that you were right, Mom,” he said, “when you told me that ordering a pizza with potatoes and pancetta on it was a bad idea.”

And then Brian threw up once again.


Written for Teresa’s Three Things Challenge, where the theee things are takeaway, potatoes, and pizza.
