Hurl In The Sink

I want to discuss an unpleasant topic – vomiting. I suppose that the subject is a bit nasty compared to the things that I generally write about, but rest assured, it happens to us all from time to time.

People traditionally do the dirty deed crouched on their hands and knees over a toilet. Why is that the standard way of handling this? When you think about it, it’s pretty gross. The thought of having my mouth anywhere near the toilet makes me want to barf, even when I don’t feel sick. I’d rather go outside and do it in the yard before going to the bathroom and getting face-to-face with the commode.

It’s very rare that I feel sick to the point of throwing up. However, one day last month I felt sick after eating at home. The thought of going to the bathroom and staring into the toilet bowl seemed so foul that I decided I wasn’t going to do it.

I took a rational approach and stood over the kitchen sink to deal with the matter. Since the outcome was surely not going to be pure liquid, I used the side with the garbage disposal. I’ll spare you the details, but I’ll tell you that it was a complete success. It was a brilliant plan! I don’t want to be crouched over a toilet bowl ever again.

I understand, however, that if you are in the company of other people, you may want to go to the bathroom for privacy. If that isn’t an issue, then the kitchen sink is the way to go. Using the sink, you are able to get through the unpleasant act on your feet, with a sense of dignity. I urge that you consider it the next time you are feeling ill.

  1. Craig, how your mind works and thinks amazes me to this day. Science should
    get into your brain to see how and why you think the way you do. Get sick in
    the sick, only you would come up with that idea. I try not to picture it in my mind.

  2. After initial skepticism I think this is good advice. Feeling sick enough to hurl is bad enough, but kneeling over the toilet just adds insult to injury. I agree that a garbage disposal is key.
