Stomach rumbles, a little erp

Should have waited on the buttery popcorn.



Mouth opens, roiling burp

Wish I’d passed up that Tex-Mex chili dog, y’all.



My clenching stomach is swilling greasy

Shoulda said no gracias on the empanadas.



Makes me green and sickly queasy

Nein on the brats and kraut would have been a good idea.



Stop this thing mechanized lightning bolt

Why didn’t I say paseo on the porchetta panini?



Screeching wheels jars me to a halt

I couldn’t think of kekkou desu, no thank you, before I ate the sushi.



Let me off, find a bucket

The international buffet is making a come-back.

  1. You said it! Had the same experience one time. I love ferris wheels, tilt-a-whirls, and aerobatics in a two-seater plane but lordy, I DO NOT LIKE ROLLER COASTERS!

  2. Oh yeah…been there, done that…never again (to the roller coaster, not the food!) 🙂

    Yuck! I don’t ride roller coasters anymore for that very reason. I do, however, still like the buffets!

  4. A good one! I have never done well on any of those amusement park rides.

    Thanks, all! Just a little fun for this beautiful ND spring day. I like to break up all the seriousness with a little smile.

  6. I’ve avoided roller coasters for 40 some years. Same with buttery popcorn, Tex-Mex chili dogs, and brats and kraut too. 🙂

      I still love the food (though not what it does to my insides) but doubt I could take the roller coaster at this stage.

  7. Laughing. Did you see the roller coaster that I posted to FB? Where they went up and around and upside down and even in spirals? Lawd! Lawd! Feels good to blog-hop to be in the “blog world” again – !
