My pipes froze, and I found out when my kids were puking. (Read 211 times)

    Good luck

      You are a hero, Tief.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        Oh, man…I vividly remember the Hell that we experienced when the Noro virus hit our house at 11:50 on NYE.  It was about a decade ago, but I still remember it clear as day and am forever thankful that we didn't go out that night.  Only 2 of us were sick and we had full use of the toilet, but it was still horrific.  I can't imagine your scenario --and hope I never do!!

         

        Did you avoid the plague?  That stuff is crazy contagious.

          Zoomy.  I didn't puke.  I think the BRAT diet really did help.  That and washing my hands or using hand sanitizer all day every day.

            When Noro started going through our extended family shortly after Christmas my DH essentially stopped eating…as he said, he didn't want to "give it ammunition."  He never really got sick.  I got sick the hardest…lost 8#s in 24 hours, was jaundiced, and had broken blood vessels all over my face.  I was one hot mess!

                Couldn't you come up with just one more metaphor or spent cliché?

                 

                Just one more?

                 

                Do you have a metaphor generator?  Plug in "vomit" and get an endless list of alternatives to use?

                 

                Way to wash your hands.  Hope everyone is feeling better.

                "C" is for cookie.  That's good enough for me.

                  I am amazed your local municipality came out and unfroze them. Out here you are on your own once they're past the water meter.

                  They won't set foot inside your home.

With my bare hands, I scrub the oral diarrhea out of its fur, and whip the stuffed cat into the washing machine. I win."

                          Thanks!  I'm trying to make the writing thing a career.  I have a middle grade book that is in front of publishing companies right now!
