Funny Enough to Puke

Warning: This may rank a little high on the Gross Scale.

Here's a short, funny story you only get from working with teenagers...

There was one time we were in a guys Bible study group and I had a boy laughing so hard during a Bible study he literally puked.

We had been outside playing football. As we headed inside, we stopped to get drinks and went on upstairs to our meeting room. We were all sitting around in a sort of circle, talking about the Bible study lesson. One of the boys had a plastic spoon he'd grabbed to chew on. (Don't ask me why, because I don't know.) Anyway, he was chewing on this plastic spoon. He had gripped the spoon between his teeth when suddenly it popped out of his mouth, flew across the circle, hit another boy in the forehead, flew straight up in the air, and then came down, landing in the cup of water the boy was holding. It was one of those moments when everybody just froze, amazed at the improbability of what we'd all just seen. And the silence was broken as we all started laughing.

There was one boy named Dalton. He was laughing so hard he got the hiccups and started burping, which made all the other guys laugh about that, which made Dalton laugh even harder. All of a sudden he started puking all over himself. The other guys quickly stopped laughing. Dalton finally stopped puking, shirt and lap covered in partially digested hotdog, all the other guys wide eyed and mouthes open not knowing what to say or do and then Dalton, sitting perfectly still, holding a handful of vomit, mumbles, "That was the coolest thing that's ever happened to me in my life."

The rest of the boys rolled with laughter. We got him cleaned up and he was fine, but we always laugh about that. Little gross I know, but... well... whatever...
