Last night, rather, yesterday evening, to be more precise, it wasn't even 8pm, and I just felt crappy and exhausted. So I went to bed. Missed that Terminator show I really like, completely forgot it was coming up.
What was coming up was everything I'd eaten the day before. At 2:30 am, violently. I barely made it to the toilet, and hurled until I was choking on my colon. As I was calling out to God to please take me, just take me now! I broke a full on sweat, and realized that I was really sick. Especially when I went from the 'burning up' part, to the shivering and freezing part. And I got to thinking about the other times in my life where puke had figured in a humorous and memorable way.
Do any of you have a memory that just cracks you up every time you think about it, and it happened a long time ago? I mean, you just belly laugh thinking about it?
My moment is shortly after Bush1 puked on the Prime Minister of Japan. I saw this comedian on TV, it may have been The Amazing Johnathon...the guy had that kind of expressive face. Anyway, he established that that was where he was gonna go, to Bush1 puking, and then he pretended to be the Japanese Prime Minister, and looked over to his right in anticapatory horror, and he says "Uhhhh, Mistah Plesident, you rook rike you gonna bro chunk!" and then he mimed catching a lapful of hot hurl...
Oh, I laughed so hard, I slid off the couch to the floor and was helpless with laughter for ten minutes. Every time I do that bit, I make at least one person snort their nose inside out.
So, do any of you have a moment like that?
Anyway, I ended up sleeping until an hour (or so) ago. I hadn't heard any blasts of thunder for the previous couple of hours. We have a week of off an on lightning ahead of us, and I don't think you folks want to buy me another computer. Especially as my writing has started to suck. So I'll be dropping out even more than usual.
Welcome to another week. I wonder what unpleasant mysteries this one brings...
