Did You Know You Can Throw Up Through Your Nose?

The answer is yes, you can!

On my first night in Rhode Island, the magazine sent me out to this super fancy restaurant where, I’m not kidding, for 3 of us, the bill was over $1,000. I was like, I’m in Rhode Island, and New England is all about seafood and such, so I may as well try oysters on the half-shell. There are oyster bars all over Rhode Island. It seemed like a cultural rite of passage.

So, this was also a 7 course meal… Ya, it was nuts.

And after getting home I was like… Wow, I’m full. Really really full, like, my tummy is bloated beyond belief full…

And as I laid in bed and was like… Something is wrong.  I started getting chills. I could feel my mouth getting really clammy (forgive the pun)

I was feeling a bit like this:


Suddenly, I knew it was coming. I had passed the point of no return.

I ran to the bathroom and puked my guts out. AND it even came out of my nose! I was so sick. And I couldn’t stop throwing up. And again and again it kept coming up even through my nose! It was the grossest moment of my life. I felt horrible.

However, I was there for work. I had a job to do. I had many more restaurants to visit and things to do. So, after puking my guts out all night, I brushed my teeth, took a shower, and headed out for breakfast!

The life of a traveler. 

I will say, after that awful night, I ended up having an amazing time in Rhode Island, and highly recommend it! (just avoid the oysters!)
