An Ode to Vomit

5:12 AM


I should probably point out that the last few days, vomit has just about consumed my life, so I really had no other choice than to write about it. When you think about it, it really is quite a phenomenon. They always say write about what you know and for the last few days with sick boys, this is what I have known. Thankfully,  they are all well and better now, but it was rough there for a while, hence my ode to the power of vomit.

An Ode to Vomit

Vomit, your are a vile and disgusting thing
Whether on the floor, in a pot or on the toilet ring
You sink, slither and splatter everywhere
Sometimes you even end up in my hair
Nothing I use seems to clear your smell
Although my nose is so assaulted I really can't tell
Sometimes you are quite chunky and colorful
But you are never welcomed and always stressful
I fight you off with buckets of disinfectant spray
But still you live to fight another day
I am finally able to get you to go
But you fought well my worthy foe.

  3. You are painting pictures with words. However, given that we're talking about "puke" I'm not sure that's a good thing!

  17. Hope everyone is healthy, now. Viruses are spread up to two weeks after person is better through fecal matter. This usually means not washing their hands throughly before touching something -- and then someone else touches the same thing (like a doornob) and voila -- they are sick. So make sure to have your boys wash their hands very good for the next few weeks!

  28. I hate vomit. One of our twins tends to get carsick from time to time and a few weeks ago threw up all over and in his brand new car seat. If I had not put the box in the recycling the day before, I may have packed it back up and returned it. it was horrid. I had to use qtips to clean in all of the cracks and crevices. Bleh.
