Ode To The Flu

Oh no theres something alien in my stomach something which want's very badly to come up it's 4:30 in the morning and I feel very queasy as I slide out of bed feeling quite uneasy Was it something I chewed…right now I haven't a clue... Making it to the latrine I put up the lid psyching myself up as I get a grip feeling like Mount Vesuvius about to erupt and like that girl from the Exorcist as I empty my gut I'm a hurly girly…giving my ufos a swirly… As I slide back into bed I have a trusty pail just in case I have to vomit again with the wind force of a gale surprisingly I don't but still feel quite sick so I call into work and explain to them very quick My stomach is in knots and twists…would someone please call me an exorcist... Then later my son say's Mom you look so pale and goes out and buys me some Verner's ginger ale I take a couple of sips and think maybe this will do the trick but then about an hour later the vomiting doesn't quit I need to be quarantined…very close to the latrine... Alternating between the volcano eruptions and number two I felt like a very sick zombie with an unkempt hairdo wondering if it was something toxic that I had ate I think maybe I should write my will out before its too late My toilet and I have now formed a lasting bond…an inanimate object which I've grown quite fond... But here it is the next morn and I ate some breakfast hoping that it will stay in my stomach and last I guess what I had was a 24 hour bout of the flu glad its over now as I bid the stomach flu adieu. I'm so glad we're through flu…oh no…..A…a..a-choo!!! 3-13-18

I hate it... Stomach flu is never an expression here, like Kim said... But it spreads very quickly here, flu that is..
