Jessie - Revised Paragraph
Cooking food completely is very important, and I suffered great pain to learn this lesson. During cooking class, our team cooked fried oysters. Unfortunately, time went by really fast. By the time we were done, there were only 10 minutes left for us to eat. “Ahh! What kind of disgusting taste is this?” my teammate said, spitting out the first bite immediately. “Are the oysters completely done?” The answer was no, but what choice did we have? We spread the sauce around as mush as possible to cover the raw smell. By midnight, I felt an ache in my belly, like a bear had punched. I visited my bathroom eight times that night and considered putting a pillow down to sleep here. I couldn’t even go to school the next day；I just ran back and forth to the bathroom. All my teammates stayed home that day, too. “That was the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of,” said one of them, and we burst out laughing. We learned to cook everything completely by having diarrhea and vomiting for two days. Since then, I have sworn never to touch raw food again.
