Better now

Vomiting is one of the most miraculous of the biological phenomena that God wove into our bodies - like a microcosm of the overhauling quickness of His cleansing power. For who would say that deliverance from the brink of dizzying uncertainty - when, hovering at the toilet bowl the soul prays, please, please, just let me throw up, and lo, your prayer is answered, and streams lead to further streams, causing one to contemplate the fascinating hydraulics by which the body seems to take care of itself, and one's nausea is, on an instant, relieved, at least for ten minutes - who would say this is to be praised any less than another thing?

I'm commenting on this post to say that I'm not worthy to comment on this post.

And to add that I'm glad you're feeling better. =P

I was just hoping it wouldn't be a huge turn-off!

You know, you should write a script for a Goonies sequel and submit it to Donner and Spielberg. I'm tired of all this waiting around. And at the least, if it got made it would prevent there being a remake.

The way God also ordains that we nourish the very earth that feeds us, that's a nifty thing, too... though it doesn't need too much thinking, I don't think.

Yes, that one's a good one. There's probably a lot that doesn't require too much thinking (but can be contemplated forever) which we as a consequence tend to overlook.
