Sympathetic vomiting is probably a survival trait, in the event someone in the group ate something bad. : Showerthoughts

Edit: Thanks for the Gold, makes me wanna puke!

Ah, spontaneous mass puking. So I'm in my preschool class of five year olds at the white board and Kevin stands up, heaves once, and projectile vomits about two feet onto the floor. Cue four other kids hurking in the next minute. We moved to another room and called the poor janitor. Classroom smelled like Satan's distilled ass juice for weeks. Thanks Kevin.

Satans distilled ass juice. Wow

Likewise, only his name was Jordan I think. He mumbled something about eating bad milk in his strawberry cereal before splashing said cereal down the aisle as he ran to the back of the room. To this day I cannot eat Special K cereal with the freeze dried strawberries. The smell is burned in my brain literally for life. It's been almost 15 years now.

I remember in second grade lunch one of the boys hurked chocolate milk and mashed potatoes on his tray. He was sitting diagonal from me. Yellow snot was hanging from his nose and mouth, dripping viscously onto his ruined food and the lunch table.

I gagged several times typing this out on my phone. I'm sure I don't have to say that I hurked as I'd never had to hurk that day, but I just did.

I feel your pain here. I was doing a half-day sub job with a 5th grade class. I arrived at the cafeteria to pick them up when I noticed that three of the boys were eating pickles and Red Hot Cheetos. I was informed that the boys in question were having a Hot Cheeto eating contest. I just rolled my eyes and marched the kids down the hall. We got about half way down when I heard the familiar hurking sound, I was about to yell at the offender to go to the bathroom but he projectile vomited Red Hot Cheetos and pickle all over the floor. This triggered the other two Cheeto bad-asses to hurk along with two girls. I ordered the hurkers to the nurse, hurried the rest of the kids to the classroom and then had to run to the office to get the janitor. It was not a good start to the day.

As a Kevin who was a very I'll child I apologize. My puke was toxic waste.

Why is it always a Kevin??

It's times like these that I feel old, but this calls to mind the scene from "Stand By Me", the revenge of 'ol Lard-ass

I was so scared of vomit in kindergarten and growing up. Have OCD and even then I had a ritual every morning to make sure nobody would puke that day.

I didn’t make it past the “and Kevin stands up" before laughing hysterically.
