LOVE HANGOVER

Most people -- besides teetotalers and children -- have an edible remedy to cure the painful effects of too much drinking the night before. An old roommate of mine swore by bacon-egg-and-cheese on a cheap roll and Gatorade. Another friend drinks Ensure, that adult formula. And for me, nothing less than a full-on brunch at Prune will do. I'm a believer in "the hair of the dog that bit you," and Prune's got the best Bloody Marys that I've ever tasted, and -- get this! -- they serve theirs with a shot of Red Stripe beer on the side! Okay, so maybe that's more than a single "hair" -- but it goddamn works.

In any case, alcohol-induced hangovers are common, as are people's personal remedies for them.

But what about a LOVE HANGOVER?

Aren't there nights where you've had a little too much of, you know...The Sex?
And you wake up RAVENOUS?
And you have a black eye and you don't know where you are?

In these (fairly rare) occurrences, I find the best remedy is a GIANT VEGGIE BREAKFAST BURRITO, made fresh and costing no more than $3, from Puebla, on 1st Avenue between 2nd and 3rd Street. It's a tiny mom-n-pop (or bro-n-sis) place that DOESN'T HAVE A REAL OVEN OR STOVETOP. Everything that's prepared here is made either by hot-press or microwave. Now I know that sounds terrible, but hear me out: Puebla is AWESOME! I don't know how the two people who work there manage to prepare consistently hot and tasty Mexican food with the tools I have in my own kitchen, and honestly, I don't want to. All I care about is getting that $3 tortilla -- filled with fresh spinach, eggs, black beans, cheese, onions, green peppers, and hot sauce -- jammed into my pie-hole.

You can get these breakfast burritos with chorizo or ham, but for my post-coital purposes, I prefer to go all-veggie. After a night of the Making of the Love, I've pretty much had all the meat I can take.

Dear Miss. DoJo,
I read your post and I have to say that my favorite part was when you woke up with a black eye and didn't know where you were.
awesome.
From your freind who is jealous and wishes that she could be so ravenous to ever want that veggie thing,
amanda
