Anyone here with any of the problems listed above can be a big help to me here. I know this sounds childish (and like something ridiculous out of "Dumb and Dumber"), and it is, but it's an important plot point for me. I have a character who stupidly decides to exact a sort of revenge on someone she is familiar with by serving him food that she knows is incompatible with his digestive system. I googled it to shit, but of the syndromes/diseases listed above, I couldn't decide which one best fits my criteria for the storyline. If you have any other ideas, feel free to comment with them as well. Basically, I am looking for a combination of a food and a bowel problem that would:
a) For the food, be difficult for the person on the recieving end to tell it was made incorrectly (I looked into gluten-free pasta for this, but couldn't find how similar it appears/feels to regular pasta, and that only works for Celiac anyways)
b) Cause a noticable uncomfortable reaction within 3 hours, preferably sooner
c) Not cause a lot of long-term damage to the victim in question (for the purpose of my character not having the pants sued off of her)
I realize this is a bit of a complex question, I tried to explain it the best that I could. Thanks in advance for the help.
ETA: I think I've settled on using regular milk in a cream soup as opposed to lactaid. Does this sound implausible to anyone?
I am not a christian, and therefore know *nothing* about this. What i have is a man who was born about 1840 and fought in the Civil War. He carries the New Testement of the bible. What passage do you think would be something that would 'comfort' him if he felt death was near?
I can't think how you'd google this, and 'death new testament' gets me links to why god is pro-death penelty.
So, maybe more a personal thing? Any suggestions?
ETA: Answered nicely, thank you!
