A Surfer Suffering From The Stomach Flu Will Never Describe It As Being "Totally TUBULAR!"

The entire Infidel family suffered from a particularly distressing case of the stomach flu last week. It was horrible. It was revolting. It was gastrointestinal drama at its peak as 8 people jockeyed for position to score seating on the 2 commodes in the Infidel household.

So, statistically, the odds of winning the toilet-line lottery in enough time without resorting to doing the demoralizing Cheek Clench-Abdominal Squeeze dance combo were not looking too good.
Along with an intimate knowledge of Montezuma's Revenge, Papi also brings a poignant wisdom; ingrained during his days as a young boy growing up in the mountainous suburbs of Mexico City. The wisest of his platitudinal phrases was oft-repeated last week: "My Churro machine is broken.....it's only making pancakes now."
Isn't my Papi like, so totally tubular? Well, I guess he had a few days last week that he wasn't quite totally tubular, but he's definitely back on his tubular game this week. We all are!

*I'm working on putting together a Bloggy Sox Exchange. Let me know if you're interested and I'll type up some details and post it this weekend*

Those look really yummy..even if they are in the same post as gastrointestinal drama.

Jean Knee said...

ewww

and yeah I'll do the sox thing

Bee said...

I will never be able to eat churros again!

nah, just kidding! I'll still eat them but I'll be thinking of you!














**I'll do the sox thing too. Do they have to be new and unchewed?

Melissa said...

I'm gonna have to echo jean knee here : ewww
Hope you're feeling better now...
I'm game for the sox thing!

Rebecca said...

Oh, that first picture turns my stomach after what preceded it! Uggghhh!!!! I'm glad you guys are over it now. Papi is quite funny! Almost as funny as you. No wonder you fell for each other. "Totally tubular". Hahahaha.

Rhonda said...

Those pictures made me gag a little. :)

Elizabeth-W said...

Gack!!!
I worried someone pooped on your churros!
We need to know if the sox have to be brand new, or if gently used is ok.

Alice said...

See...when you have a cat, there's always the litter box for a true emergency.

I'm in for a sock exchange. I got some great ones from the Chinese couple selling stuff by the road where I also managed to get this county's only counterfeit Pokemon cards. Who'd have thunk that cards sold on the road were fake?

Nancy Face said...

Ewww...SIIICK!

I'll never look at churros quite the same way again! :0

Hey, I didn't say I wouldn't EAT them! :D

Nancy Face said...

This cracked me up! (Not to be confused with bun cracks.)

A sock exchange sounds fun! :D

Lisa said...

I didn't know there was such a tool for the average American. I thought Churros could only be enjoyed at mouse infested play lands. (Disneyland) So cool!

Suzanne said...

I'm never going to look at a Churro the same again... :D

We've had a stomach bug here too this week and it hasn't been pretty. I'm glad that you're all feeling better!

Suzanne said...

Count me in on the Sox exchange! :) (O.k. that sounds a little creepy...)

JustRandi said...

I was thinking "churros, yum!" and then it hit me.

I'm quick like that.

Sox swapping sounds fun!

glittersmama said...

Sick!

Sign me up for sox.

jams o donnell said...

Sox? I'm game on EWBL!

Hey It's Di said...

NO wonder I've always been a huge fan of churros and not so much pancakes! It is definitely the case now!!

I'm all for the sox exchange!

david mcmahon said...

Hope everyone has recovered. I laughed at your description of the ``Cheek Clench-Abdominal Squeeze dance combo'' ....

Tracy said...

I don't know that I'll ever be able to look at churros or pancakes the same way ever again. This could be the new miracle diet. Does your hubby have anything to say to make: ice cream, snickers, gummy bears, or animal crackers look bad?

And I'm in on the sox!

VE said...

Why do my butt muscles involuntarily flex when confronted with that last photograph?

what's a donzer said...

The second picture is quite possibly the most amazing action shot my eyes have ever witnessed.

lime said...

we suffered similarly this week so i fully identify with everything here. and thank you for confirming what i have always thought about churros anyway....as well as for the hearty guffaw!

(here via david, btw)

I'll be back with the sox-crazed maniac exchange action details later.

We're off to to tour the Blue Bell Ice Cream factory today!

Lisa said...

Mmmmm! Blue Bell!

aubrey said...

and i LOVE churros. and was actually craving them a couple of days ago. glittersmama can vouch for me on that one. i want a churro maker!

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I have to work all night and we're leaving immediately at 7 in the morning for the Zoo to try and beat the heat.

I promise to get some sock details out soon.

THopgood said...
