In Denmark "Ralph" is "Ulrich"

The following story was originally written up as a comment in [blog saintlianna]'s post titled [post 266129]

I'm trying to collect some of my epic commetns from other people blogs because I have now realized that somethimes people leave and do things like delete portions of or all o thier blogs and I already have lost a few verbal gems from things like that.

So here is the first of my resurrected old comments.

------------------------------------------------

When I lived in Denmark in the mid 90's I leanred that their equivalent for the United Statesian puking expression "Ralph" is "Ulrich" and is pronounced "oolrick". So don't be oolricking too much today.

This line of thinking reminds me of the last time I got way too drunk which is now somewheres about 13 years ago.

First my roommate and I got hammered on beer at a blues bar somewhere on the Santa Monica Promenade and then quite stupidly we stopped by a store on the way home and picked up approximately a liter bottle of the cheapest tequila they had. Vons generic brand I believe. Then we proceeded to stay up until the sun came up and polished off the whole bottle.

I knew it was going to be a bad one but I had enough semblance of wits remaining about me to chug water in copious quantities just before I went to bed. I think it was about noon when I woke with the worst headache of all time. Checking around for ibuprofin I found I was out. In desperation I checked a leather purse which I'd recently found in the bushes near the front door of the apt. This had most likely been snatched from a girl from the nearby high school and then carelessly chucked into the bushed from the roadside. I was in luck and there was some ancient tylenol left in a small bottle in there and I slammed down a handful of them with a glass of water.

Bad maneuver. Quite soon after that I began getting that unmistakable "gonna have to puke soon" feeling and when it did erupt it came far too fast for me to have run anywhere proper to let loose with it. So I fully caught the whole load in my cheeks and ran for the toilet like bat out of hell. (if bats could run that is)

Lucky for me it was only water and the dissolving tylenol though. Absolute zero chunkage. Almost immediately after that I began wretching from deep in my gut and from that point on I had the dry heaves (and that zonkingly outrageous headache) for the remainder of the daylight hours. These were some hard heaves too but there was simlply nothing down there at all to come up.

Each time it happened I felt like someone had just socked me full force in the solar plexus and the next day I had that type of soreness down there where if you laugh even the slightest bit it hurts like a motherfucker.

That sure taught me not to overdo it with the booze though and I've never even come close to doing that sort of thing ever since.

I was thinking something similar as I downed them but it was a desperate act attempting to treat the most hideous headache I've ever had in the only way I saw possible at that moment.

I think my puking was more of a reaction to that much tylenol on an empty, raw stomach than anything else. I mean the tequila was surely a big factor too but I really don't think I would have been throwing up at all if I'd not taken that fist full of mystery Tylenol.

The headache was then compounded and made much worse by all that empty heaving too.

I don't envy the tolerance because when it does finally make its way back out its money wasted. So at least the cheap ass bottle isn't an old hit on the wallet. I have to agree with Saintlianna though and thinking dusty old aspirin were gonna save you from your obvious fate was wishful thinking. At least it was a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away

Hi SusieQ27,

Nice to see you again. I missed Dweezils travellinig Zappafest so I need to come and ask you just how that went. I feel certain it was worth seeing though. And I still have no clue what role Amit played in all that. I had though that he didn't play an instrument but I hope i'm wrong about that.

hi again velvetgrrrl,

I never quite thought about it that way but sometimes more expensive can be better as it can be certin qualities of the low grade stuff that actually gets you sick.

But in that particular instance you would be right with that idea becuase that much of any kind of Tequila would have still done the same to me.

I could if I wanted as I have an old comment mentioning what I sometimes call a "gravy trail"

and thanks for that link. I sometimes forget to check the replies to my comments but I won't miss that one. That labyrinthian Jeopardy game you cooked up is defintely one the wonders of the blogworld with you as the master of blogarchitectural design!

Dang! I'm glad you survived it. I just tried a straight shot of tequilla for the first time about a month ago. Okay - it ended up being two or three shots. Knocked me on my ass. Glad I have good padding there! No hangover for me though. Guess I got lucky!
