Word association

When I was a little kid, I used to be completely terrified of fat people who mentioned that they felt nauseous.

I don't know where this originated, but I seem to remember it having something to do with the term "fat cow". It stood to reason if cows had six stomachs, "fat cows" must have six stomachs as well.

And WHO wants to be anywhere near 6 times the normal amount of vomit?

Now, personally, I'm not exactly skinny. I wouldn't necessarily consider myself a "fat cow", but what if I look like a fat cow to some random five year old?

Should I be more careful about verbalizing when I feel nauseous?

Are there kids out there who have looked at me and thought, "Good Lord, I hope that lady doesn't puke on me!"

(I never said that I had normal, rational thought patterns...)
