Stormy Tuesday


It has been thundery and very wet today.
Everything feels damp and slightly depressing, I was going to drive to Theatre Clwyd this evening
But the weather remains too irritating for me to stomach a spray soaked A 55.
Earlier I took myself off to Marks & Spencers and bought myself a choux bun for tea and had to chuckle to myself as a small child horrified it's mother by throwing up all over ( and inside)  the self service till!
It did amuse me!
The barf was one of those true projectile ones that only small kids and possessed pre teenage girls can achieve

  1. Always stand back 20 meters for best effect. Hope the bun went down well. Lovely day in Sandwich, it's our turn to see the sun at last.

  2. Eh? A fully-qualified, professional nurse sees a poorly little child vomiting in public and his instinct is to laugh! What is the world coming to?

    1. I smiled inwardly.
      The laugh came after I 'd gone up the escalator

  3. I have never smiled, much less laughed, in the presence of vomit ... I would have made a very poor nurse ...

  4. Projectile vomiting is funny in drawings but not very funny when I do it for real and it is very noisy too when I do it

  5. Not one of those moments that makes for a lasting happy memory !

  6. Being a fat and very greedy person, I have carried on eating a very nice ham roll, while my elderly aunt vomited loudly and violently over the back of the car seat I was sitting in. I regard it as one of my finest hours.

  9. You are so right, no one can projectile barf like a small child. One of my brothers was a known puker, we all learned to stay well away from him after things like milkshakes or ice cream....

  11. Goodness, a small child throwing up in M&S and lowering the tone. The M&S clientele is meant to be sedate and respectable and incapable of vomiting (or perspiring or farting).

  12. I have ethical objections to self service tills, but would never take my protests that far.

  13. You are easily amused and a slightly strange man.

  14. I fell a little bit in love with a former tenant and friend of ours when he went out to eat with me and the children once when they were little. One of them puked half a gallon of red-colored vomit in the check-out line and he was so sweet about it. The red came from the massive amounts of self-serve strawberry soda, not blood, just to be clear.

  15. Perfectly describes how I felt after meeting with creation colleagues today. Bleeeeack!

  16. And cats. One of ours once vomited from on top of a wardrobe. And managed to cover much of the room with the fallout. I shudder remembering.

  17. That reminds me of something that happened about 30 years ago...I was taking care of my niece and she was in the shopping cart and she just had to pee and she did!...all over everything! I calmly took her out of the cart and walked out the door...left everything. Not one of my prouder moments! She is now a lawyer and I am taking care of her son...a happy go lucky little boy. Fun to go the complete circle!

  18. When I was a student a friend drank a whole bottle of creme de menthe. It re-emerged in the same fashion as you've described here whilst he was dancing in a twirly fashion. I've never seen a dance floor clear so effectively! x

  19. I once had a bad reaction to an injection while in labour in a maternity ward..... I had been eating cherries before hand and had what looked to be a fit complete with puking cherry pulp. Everyone thought it was blood clots... I still smile

  20. You always go to the rescue of old ladies (that is one of the things I love most about you) - don't your rescue skills take in mothers with young childred too?
