I just saw this on Yahoo. Did anyone else happen to catch this? It's an amazing story--at least, I think so! :-) I can't imagine going nine years without being able to eat real food. :souka:

I know. It's wild. I still can't get over that poor man not being able to eat solid foods for nine long years! Instead, he had to eat soup and liquids from a straw. :eek:

If it was me, I would not choose a "Bratwurst sandwich", bratwurst I only eat when I am going for a vacation in Germany...:lol:

I would choose something more tasty!!

As a vegetarian, I wouldn't choose that one either!! :-) It must have been his favorite food or something.

To not eat in nine year must be....well...awful!!
I think I would after nine years of awful *food through straw* go "binging" for Japanese and Mexican food (not necessarily the same day)...:-)

She's probably in the same boat as this man used to be, since that's the way he was for nine years. :eek:
