Have You Ever … Been Disgustingly Sick!?

In case you haven’t seen the news, Norovirus, a gastrointestinal illness commonly confused with the stomach flu or food poisoning has been making its way through many schools, workplaces, families, and public places over the last month or so.

      1. We’re like triplets or something! 24 as well. (Perhaps 25, since I suspect that as an infant I might have vomited on my mom at some point, but as I have no recollection of that I didn’t count it.)

  1. 15, although probably 16 is accurate, cause I’m sure, as a baby, I threw up on somebody at some point in time. But in my adult life, I never have. So I’m going with 15.
