Wait. Was I really on vacation????

Memorable moments from four (five? It's all a blur) in the Sunshine State:

Private parts

What the heck is the deal with the toilet paper at a Disney resort hotel? It was like SANDPAPER! Wonderhubby, in complete seriousness, said, "Next year, we're bringing our own!" Feel sorry for my poor parts, people. It was not pretty.

Huh?????

My father-in-law (a Floridian) drove for the competition, stayed in our room, left early Sunday morning ... and left his hearing aids on our bathroom counter.

We tried to call him but his phone was off. When he DID call, this is the Wonderhubby side of the conversation, which took place on a bus en route to Disney's Animal Kingdom:

"You left your hearing aids on the counter."

*pause*

"YOU LEFT YOUR HEARING AIDS ON THE COUNTER."

*pause*

"YES, I KNOW YOU CAN'T HEAR ME -- THAT'S BECAUSE YOU LEFT YOUR HEARING AIDS ON THE COUNTER!"

Sigh.

The grass is always greener -- and so is my face!

The Mount Everest ride ... uh ... goes backwards. I don't do backwards roller coasters. Yuck.

Speaking of green ...

I believe that the entire state of Florida was vomiting at some point during our trip. I swear that everywhere we went, someone puked.

* On our walk to the entrance of the Magic Kingdom, I had to yank Wonderhubby to the left before he walked through a pile o' puke on the pavement. A quick glance to the right gave us a perfect view of a poor youngster still heaving, surrounded by concerned parents.

* On our ride on the monorail, as we approached one stop, I heard a weird rushing-water sound.

More than once.

A quick glance to the left gave us a perfect view from an older gentlemen vomiting on the floor.

We changed cars.

* As we waited to check our luggage on the flight home, we saw a mother bolt from out of the line with a toddler. A quick glance to our left gave us a perfect view of the toddler ralphing into a blanket.

Just for the record, apparently they boarded our plane anyway. One of the moms in our party (who sat in front of them) told us later that the kid puked every half-hour or so for the entire nearly 6-hour flight.

No lie.

And then there was early-morning humor

Evil Wife: I don't want to get up.

Wonderhubby: Then don't.

Evil Wife: Yeah, but I have to pee, and that could be SOOO messy.

Wonderhubby: We DO have another bed ...

*rimshot*

Can I just say that I'm glad I'm home?

Welcome back, and thank you for the lovely quantities of vomit talk. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go throw up.

Kila said...

At least you made memories! ;)

We are going to Disney World on March 26th. Thanks for that flash of reality! And I'll think about the toilet paper! Which resort were you at?

Stacie said...

hahahahah.

great memories...

puke isn't so great and hopefully whatever was going on doesn't hit your family too!

Janet said...

I thank MY LUCKY STARS I was NOT on that flight!!!

Janet said...

um.

gross?

Glad you're home so we can hear about something else. I think I would have left after the first incident.

Chris said...

LMAO! I KNOW you can't hear me!!!

justmylife said...

Welcome back. But think of the puke filled memories you have, you will never forget that trip. heh!!

Burfica said...

I puked on a carnival ride once.

My dad will call and have his t.v. so loud he can't hear me and I can't hear him.

I hate when I have to get out of bed to pee.

Suzanne said...

I think I know the answer, but does FIL 'do' texting? Do you have to write in all caps or him to 'hear' it when he doesn't have his hearing aids?

Still wish I knew you were over there-I would have come to say hi!

Karen said...

Between vomiting randomly and peeing the bed, I think you've officially reverted back to your childhood. Of course, you technically did neither, but you're walking a fine line.

Ask Wonderhubby "Who's on first?"

Nap Warden said...

It ain't a vaca. without vomiting:P
I love the hearing aid convo;)

Beckie said...

That was certainly a memory maker of a trip.

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

You got mad at me for plurking about green snot when I got to read over and over about puke here? Talk to the hand.

nikki said...

When I complain about having to pee and not wanting to get up, Kev always cracks jokes about sleeping in wet spots anyway. No wonder why he sleeps on the couch sometimes....

Please....no more about puke okay?

PorkStar said...

oh that kind of rimshot... uhm..

Daisy said...

I'll just rejoice that no one is vomiting here, at least today.
Stop by compost happens: I've passed on an award!

HalfAsstic.com said...

Hi! I've never been by before and have seen your comments on several of the other blogs I frequent, so I thought I'd stop by!
Wonderhubby sounds like he's got it all figured out!

Kaytabug said...

BWahahahhaahah! All so funny!!

my lil pervert mind immediately thought you meant the dirty rimshot. I am hopeless. You must go see my doggy train.

Debbie said...

Mercy. What did everyone have to eat down there that made them all sick. And the hearing aid story is great!

Gattina said...

songbird's crazy world said...

oh, my...

I'm glad my daughter Jen wasn't on your trip...when she was 10, she refused to ride Rock N roller coaster because someone had just puked on it...and wouldn't ride it again until she was 16.

should have warned you about Mt. Everest. I loved it, but....

Jaina said...

Yuck to the throwing up. Just listening to that little kid on the flight back would have made me throw up.

texasholly said...
