I'd like to formally apologize to all the BYU students dining at Tucano's last night. If Madelyn had made the announcement two minutes earlier that she was going to "choke," we probably would have made it to the bathroom in time. Instead we rushed away from our table, got stuck behind a server, only to have her throw up all over the floor next to your table. To the lady that had her back to us, who literally had to hold her husband's head forward so he wouldn't see the mess, then duplicate the problem, I'm sorry about the throw up on your chair, and your purse.

I'm also sorry for the birthday celebration that was ruined by round two of vomit. We really were on our way to the bathroom, but your birthday-drum-song distracted Maddie, and caused her to go your direction, rather than to the bathroom.

And last, but not least, I'd like to apologize for the hundred-plus expensive dinners that were ruined by four, on the way to the bathroom, vomits. I cannot even imagine the stories that are being told today...or the amount of cleanup that it took to sanitize that floor. I'm sorry I walked away, but I had no other choice, there was much more puke potential. Don't worry, I got mine too - when Ella started the whole process again at home.

Yuck.

Oh my! Not the way you hope a trip to Tucanos would go. Hope those girlies start feeling better soon!

BTW- I haven't had a chance to start up that Mac to get the info you were wanting, but tell him to just drop in while he is here if he's interested.

The next time you dine at Tucanos, you may want to consider wearing disguises. Either that or come bearing major swag to give to the waitstaff.

If it is any consolation, I bet almost every mom has a similar tale to tell, although the rest of us can't make it sound as hilarious as you can! Funny, funny!

Oh that's terrible! I hope the girls are feeling better soon and that Jude doesn't join in the festivities!

Wow what a story to tell. I'm sure that was quite an eventful night for A LOT of people that night. Hopefully everyone is feeling better!

Things like this get funnier and funnier as time goes on. They're never quite as funny as they are when you get to read about them happening to someone else though. Thanks for the giggle. Brings back memories...that are getting funnier day by day.
