puke. again.

So, you might have noticed a recent theme (here and here). Replacing boogers—and adding to the passage of gas—we now have “puke.” Also known as Alice’s favorite new word.


Once upon a time, in a far away kingdom, there was a mother who took the advice of a dear friend and added vegetables to her smoothie. Broccoli, peas, and avocado would accompany the orange, kiwi, and strawberries in their healthful morning breakfast. Joy and pride filled the mother’s heart as she lovingly prepared one of her child’s favorite things.

Calling the child in, the mother delivered the joyful news that she had made a smoothie. The child was surprised and delighted until she laid her hopeful eyes on the smoothie. Crestfallen, that poor child stopped dead in her tracks and declared, “It looks like puke.” And truly it did.

The child began to note the smoothie’s similarity to said puke. Upon reaching a spot-on observation regarding the yellow chunks in the now terribly disappointing smoothie, the mother knew something simply must be done.

So she added more strawberries.

And they all lived happily ever after.

  1. I used to make homemade smoothies loaded with veggies and serve them to my kids in McDonald’s milkshake cups. Worked every time. I’m that evil. McDonald’s would never serve anything that looked like puke, would they?
