I just got back from a shindig that involved drinking lots of soda and throwing up. I don’t get it, when does this sound like a good idea:
-Drink lots of Mountain Dew then throw up and feel sick for a while. And not be able to sleep from caffeine overdose.
The challenge is to finish the most soda without throwing up in the shortest amount of time. I like the concept, but I don’t know what motivates people to do this. I also don’t want to seem like a party pooper, because I certainly enjoyed witnessing (or rather, hearing) a projectile vomit that lasted about six seconds and took out an entire flight of stairs.
Something inside me forced me to look on with mixed emotions as this poor girl vomited all over the place – I couldn’t turn away. However, I have a weak stomach, and while I didn’t throw up, I began to feel queasy. Seeing someone throwing up = my turn to throw up. I had to leave early because I didn’t want to break the record for throwing up without drinking any soda at all.
Enough about vomiting. On a lighter note, I saw a guy celebrating his last day of class today, chuckling and laughing and patting himself on the back. Then he tripped, fell backwards, and slid down the stairs. Luckily, he wasn’t injured as his buttocks turned into a makeshift toboggan, and he had some pre-winter sledding action. I had to quickly leave the scene of the incident so I could laugh without damaging his pride.* Just another incident of the system paying off.
*I’m sorry that I might sound insensitive, but people falling down is really funny.
