A New Attitude Could Change the World

I was sick yesterday.  I was working out and I think I pinched a nerve, causing a massive headache and nausea.  It was not my favorite moment.  Luckily, I was able to see a chiropractor and he helped me live another day.  But as I was sitting with a garbage pail at my feet and my friend driving me around, all I kept thinking was: Do Not Throw Up.

This caused me to reflect.  (The pain meds probably helped as well.  They made everything so pretty, creating a more reflective atmosphere.)

Why is throwing up socially unacceptable?

We’ve all done it and probably will one day again.  We know that in general you always feel better when you throw up even if it’s only for a little while.  That almost sick feeling with your mouth salivating is one of the worst feelings ever invented ever and if you can throw up and not feel it for 20 minutes, why do we do everything in our power to hold it down?  What would happen if we all threw up when we felt like it?

I think we should give it a try.  Just don’t try it by me.  I think throwing up is gross.

(There’s no picture.  I think it’s best.  Don’t you?)

    Only you would contemplate such a thing while in pain…
    And yes, thank you for no pictures.

      I was over analyzing my desire to not throw up. It took my mind off of my desire to cry 🙂

    Hey. Whatever works. Glad you’re feeling better. 🙂

      Thanks:). And I probably am the only one who thinks about this stuff. I think this is what’s wrong with the world.

    Personally, I KNOW if I throw-up, I am DYING. So, I refuse to do it ;-).

      That’s true. It seems the older you get the worse it gets. There’s got to be a way to reverse this.
