Squishy - i think it just takes people a bit to figure out what the trigger point is, and then little feet need more steps to make it... i had issues as a kid with getting over-stimulatetd at sleepovers - a combo of too much sugar & excitement and not enough sleep - and getting sick to my stomach. at the ripe old age of 35+, i started figuring out in advance that i would get sick from fried food & alcohol (there goes fish fries...), adn could pin point wiht great accuracy when i would actually get sick.
give them time... at least they announce when they get up! ;-)
Ha, my best friend growing up was a sleepover barfer. After a certain hour, I'd just expect her to explode at any second.

Now she's a crazy party girl. Always out at clubs until the wee hours. Maybe booze is the key to *not* barfing, in her case.

I've never heard of that before and never witnessed anyone doing that! Interesting!!!

Yeah, we always had the one girl who would be dead asleep by 9 p.m. But no pukers.

She'd get tired, then get a headache, then couldn't sleep until she barfed. Only happened once or twice when I was there, but it was a regular thing for her.

I don't think we ever did anything terribly mean. We put her bra in the freezer one night. Another time, we carried her in her sleeping bag down to the bottom of the hill (we were sleeping outside). Seriously, she was dead asleep by 9 p.m. and snoring. But she was one of the nicest girls so we had a bit of fun but nothing mean.

I went to a small slumber party in fifth grade and I couldn't have fun becuase I was on the verge of puking mcuh of the night. The mom knew it and sort of hung around me, probably hoping to make sure she controlled where the puke went.

Then I felt it coming. Ran to the bathroom, hung out in there, with the mom holdin gmy hair back... and out came the tiniest burp you've ever heard and that was it. Felt great. Time to run around and play!

most of the time, after i puke, i can tell if i'm done or not. wehn we went to germany last december, i was sick halfway across teh atlantic. it came on quick, adn kept coming. once we got home, though, i had some vitamin water or sometihgn like that, e-mailed my office manager that i might maybe call in tired depending on how the night went, and went to bed. slept like a log and went to work feeling fine.

More silliness from my favorite engaged couple--I guess my SIL's fiancÚ has no plans to work any type of job during the school year until after he graduates. It's "too stressful" to work and go to school. Keep in mind he has no job now, either. And I guess they ARE planning on getting married in a year. He'll lose his insurance under his parents, she could lose her need-based scholarships. And, they want to get married in Bourbonnais. Where neither of them are from, none of their relatives live, and where they no longer go to school. And they'll be planning this alleged wedding from Tennessee.

Why Bourbonnais in the middle of fields? Last time I was in Bourbonnais they had plenty of fields so that's why I say that.

They went to school there last year.
If they time it right they can do it during Bears' training camp, although I can't say I ever thought of Bourbonnais as a destination wedding place either....

First of all, focus on growing up instead of trying to prove to everyone that you have already done so. I also knew that I never wanted to have kids, but didn't feel the need to try to convince everyone in my life. If you are 17 and about to start college, even the biggest baby-maniac in the world should understand that there are other things for you to concern yourself with right now. Just smile and say your parenting days are too far down the road to think about right now. There is no need for a battle about whether you are going to give birth or not.
Second, good luck finding a doctor to perform a tubal litigation on a healthy 17-year-old. My friend's daughter is 19 with two kids and she has had zero luck finding someone. Not that they aren't out there, just that most won't, and I don't know that I would be comfortable with the ones who would be willing.

Yeah. They're doing it there because the pastor at their church said they could do the ceremony and reception there for free. Which is exactly what the pastor at her church here and his pastor up in NW Indiana would say probably...buuuut, I'm assuming they haven't looked in to that. I guess we'll stay at my dad's, because it's closer than here.

Also, his mom is mortified with the idea of doing like a pot luck reception or just a cake reception. I was like, this is the part where you say "Oh, so you're going to pay for catering? That's awesome!" But they think it's improper to ask. Sorry, but you have to buy your way in to that kind of input in to a wedding.
