Been there, drank that

Or something like that. The misnamed “stomach flu” claims another victim:

Found out the hard way that you shouldn’t drink water when you’re sick. Couldn’t keep down Pedialyte or apple juice; ended up drinking Sierra Mist for the entire day.

I was always told to swig some 7-Up under these conditions — ginger ale is supposedly better, but I never was too fond of ginger ale — so apparently some things never change. Much.

    Sounds like the bout of Norwalk Virus I had several Christmases ago. The one where I learned that “projectile vomiting” is actually not a hyperbolic statement.

    I think I made it through with weak tea and Vernor’s ginger ale (sadly, hard to find west of the Mississippi.)
