EVERYONE has at least one good throwing-up story, I’m convinced. Whether it’s from booze or pregnancy or plain ol’ stomach flu, we’ve all thrown up not-in-a-toilet at least once. Sometimes the stories are really funny. In fact, they often are! I love a good story time thread, so hopefully I’m not the only one willing to share (and if you get totally grossed out by puking, then perhaps you should stop reading now)! Even if it didn’t happen to you but happened to a friend, if it’s a good story, please share. Or if it happened to you but you’re ashamed and want to claim it happened to a friend, we’ll never know the difference 🙂
My worst happened a couple of years ago. When I turned 25, a terrible thing started to happen to my body. My aging body couldn’t handle the after-effects of booze as well as it used to, and I started … throwing up whenever I had bad hangovers. It was awful (seriously, becoming pregnant has been the best thing that ever happened to me. I haven’t thrown up a single time!). One day, I was really hungover and felt guilty about it because I had a lot of stuff I needed to do around the house. I decided to just take it one chore at a time, and see how much I could eventually accomplish. I opted to start with the dishwasher, which needed to be run. You can see where this is going.
I loaded the dishwasher up and started it. Then I realized I had left a mug in the other room. I grabbed the mug and went back into the kitchen, opened the dishwasher and leaned over to put the mug in it. I don’t know if it was the steam, the smell, the bending over, or what, but I … threw up into the dishwasher. While it was running.
At least the clean-up was easy — the dishwasher took care of that! When it was done, I ran it a second time. You know, just to be sure.
Who’s next?? I think we can avoid making this whole thread totally disgusting if we steer clear of details like smell/consistency, etc. Haha wouldn’t want anyone to end up with a NEW story about how they threw up onto their keyboard at work while reading a thread about throwing up … though that would be pretty meta.
