In fifth grade, Katie and I decided, for some reason, it would be amusing to compile a list of the various expressions people use for throwing up. We questioned everyone we could find for more than a month, occasionally turning up an unexpected gem. I think our list reached over fifty before we stopped getting new material. Sadly, I lost the list and I can't remember most of them now, but some of my favorites were: blow chunks, spew, hurl, hurk, pray to the porcelain god, lose your lunch, toss your cookies, ralph, and taste your lunch a second time.
