TITLE: My Boyfriend's Mother almost Poisoned Me!

I'm considering adding this to my life as a cat part one. It's a lighter side of my survival story.
She was not culpable. In fact, she liked me very well. Mrs. Divine was just getting a little careless in the kitchen.

My mother always told me to clear my plate when I was in some else's home for dinner.

I was at the Divine's for Sunday dinner, eating pork, applesauce, and cucumber vinaigrette.

I'd just finished the cucumbers, which tasted a bit bitter, though I said nothing in order to be polite.

John's sister asked,"Did anyone eat the cucumbers? Mom, what's in this stuff?!"

I gulped silently and raised my hand. Mrs. Divine showed her daughter the bottle she'd used in the kitchen cabinet. It had no label and looked like cider vinegar. Judy smelled it and exclaimed,"Oh my gosh! This is the carpet cleaner, Mom!"

All eyes looked at me as they quickly called poison control.

John was instructed to keep me alert and give me 8 ounces of milk every hour on the hour for the next 24 hours. I called home to tell my parents where I would be.

Although I felt nauseous, I never even ejected the foul food. John and his family looked at me with grave concern as the night wore on.

The next day I was still alive, none the worse for the wear. I was glad to get home and thanked Mom for our delicious and non-toxic dinner.

I didn't go to the Divine's very often after that. I explained to John that ours had become a "toxic relationship" as he became more possessive and occasionally verbally abusive. I do believe that poisonous dinner was God's gentle way of telling me to get out of a bad situation and find someone more suitable for me. Sometimes even if someone seems "divine," it doesn't mean God sees him that way!
