Gross

In the mornings generally I take the bus to work. The particular bus I take is, unfortunately, on a hospital route. Which means that right now, all the people who are sick are riding the bus. This also means there are a lot of old people on the bus. This also makes for some interesting times. And lots and lots of hand sanitizer. So this morning it was really great. I continued my morning tradition of giving up my seat to a member of the elderly....I just can't watch them swaying and hanging on for dear life in the aisles. People, I ALMOST made it to my stop without a single incidence. And then I hear the voice of an anxious mom (i had my headphones in) Move to the side! She's going to vomit! Cue yucky noise and something wet and sticky all over my jeans and feet. Gotta love public transportation. Happy Wednesday friends.

OMG! So nasty! I'm nearly phobic about people throwing up within eye or earshot of me. I'm not quite sure what I'd do if someone actually puked ON ME. Ew, I'm so grossed out now. Glad you survived. lol.

Horrible!! I am so sorry, that is not the way to start your day.

A couple of years ago I was helping a friend move. Her son was playing and hit his head. Of course, I grabbed him up as she was inside. He was crying hard and then threw up all over my shoulder. Gross.

Speaking of gross, are you getting through this pink eye epidemic safely? I'm so scared I'm going to get it from one of my students, and in addition to that like all of Wallace's relatives have it too! Today when I went to school, the girl who works there (who has been working with pink eye for the past three days) was rubbing her eyes right before she gave me my materials! Eew! I'm going to run out of my hand sanitizer before this is over!

Oh sick! (no pun intended) This is my worst public transportation nightmare! I almost got puked on on a plane once - a Tam flight with no barf bags - but so far I've been lucky. That sounds like the WORST!

Amanda said...
