Escape from the Vomitorium, the Sequel

Rate: 8 Flag

Just when you thought it was safe to walk away from the toilet.


With a tip of the hat to designanator


The linens are washed or at the dry cleaners, the semblance of order is almost back to its prevaricating usualness, and the husband is boldly cooking up sloppy joe’s for dinner.  Feeling more like himself again, the Child of Four has reinstated his demands for 24/7 “Wow, Wow Wubzy” broadcasts and plentiful chocolate milk en sippy cup.


Things and germs have a way of going round, however.  Yes, I know they were just put away; bring the bowls back.  The farmer is hugging porcelain.  She has a thing for toilets, you know.


And some people like cake.


'The Germ'

A mighty creature is the germ,

Though smaller than the pachyderm.

His customary dwelling place

Is deep within the human race.

His childish pride he often pleases

By giving people strange diseases.

Do you, my popet, feel infirm?

You probably contain a germ.  


Ogden Nash

eek. and eep.

Just hang in there. Yeah, that doesn't help, huh? Germs are out there. I am PRAYING I do not get this thing. But the Kid's in daycare. The possibilities are mondo.
Lauren, those pesky germs . . . I'm thrilled that you chose my comment from yesterday for your title today--it really made my day! With luck and a few more hours, I hope all will be well!!
In the midst of it all you are able to find a fitting poem by Ogden Nash...and post it, too! You are one tough cookie! feel better soon!
I had this last month. It stinks. And I don't have a 4 year old to care for. Poor, PF. It only lasts a few days, though.
Oy! Poor baby. If you can say cake, you're going to be all right. Has David caught this yet? God help you if he does. Forget the bowls, just have him use the swimming pool.
I have found that playing Barry Manilow in the background often kills most germs...okay, and a few brain cells. But at least there is an upside.

Seriously...hang in there, this is never fun, I always keep thinking that in a couple of weeks I'll be myself and this just becomes a bad dream.
Hope the bug gets its ass outta town post haste.

"The Golden Trashery of Ogden Nashery" is a source book for those aspiring to Wit 201.

"Bacilli swarm within my portals
Such as were ne'er conceived by mortals,
But bred by scientists wise and hoary
In some Olympic laboratory;
Bacteria as large as mice,
With feet of fire and heads of ice
Who never interrupt for slumber
Their stamping elephantine rumba."
I hope you get over it soon. my bowels are still calling me.
every 5 minutes or so.
I hate germs. all of 'em.

Feel better baby!!!
thanks everyone, it was a rough night. if anyone wants to donate some guts,, i need them. i threw mine all up last night.

no energy to hit the shift key
Oh, too bad. Hope you feel better really soon! At least you chose a great poem. Take care.
oh man, you must love him if you're even able to tolerate the THOUGHT of sloppy joe's in the house.

Ogden Nash made me very happy.

"The trouble with a kitten is that
eventually it becomes a cat."
Hi Luaren - Just sending well wishes and good thoughts to you - feel better soon! XO
Poor Lauren! Feel better soon.

The last time I had that, I was in a hotel. My husband and I had to keep calling room service for more toilet paper. They tried to kick us out because we were outstaying our reservation, and we told them they really didn't want us walking down their hallways and through the lobby. It was not pretty. I thought I should have lost at least 50 pounds from the ordeal.

P.S. If you can laugh, even weakly, you know you're going to be ok.
I am assuming you are feeling better at the present time. I hope you are! Get well! G
