Now THAT'S Sick

Yesterday my students and I went on a field trip to the Museum of Natural History. It was a fun, mostly unremarkable trip, but I did want to share this anecdote. The ride to museum was pretty bumpy. Several students complained of car sickness and a couple said they were going to throw up. Sure enough, one of my girls ended up vomiting. It was a bright orange. Shocked by the color, once she was calm and feeling better I asked what she had eaten for breakfast. Doritos and orange soda she explained. I suggested she should be eating that kind of junk food so early, because it would make her sick no matter where she was. The always verbose and sometimes entertaining Pop N Fresh chimed in.

"You know what will make you sick Mr. B?"
"What's that?"
"Shrimp, ice cream and chocolate milk."

I couldn't argue with that, and I had to wonder if the chubby young boy knows from experience or was just making an educated guess.
