Does anybody remember a christmas or two ago when Smoke got people writing alternative versions of the above mentioned beloved christmas classic? His version was so funny that it inspired me to have a bash myself.

 

I found it in one of my old notebooks the other day, my attempt at such a poem, but sadly it's unfinnished. It went something along the lines of...

 

T'was the night before Christmas, and as luck would have it,

I spent the evening with my head in a bucket.

The zofran was laid by my bedside with care,

with thoughts that The Sickness soon would be there.

I dashed to the bathroom with such a clatter,

that my mum came to see what was the matter.

"Oh not again!" she said "what a time to choose!"

'As if I had planned this', I silently mused.

The tree was all laiden with gifts galore,

but thoughts of such things were in my mind no more.

For when my Old Friend pays a visit I can scarcely see

anything beyond my faithful bucket and me!

I do remember when Smoke wrote about The Night Before Christmas but I cannot find it doing a message board search.

 

I like your version very much!  clever writing Nicky.

12 Days of CVS Christmas

 

This rendition of the 12 days of Christmas was inspired by Smoke ( who gave me the idea) and for anyone who knows the reality of this song.

 

On the first day of Christmas, we got from CVS, a puking party and a big mess.

On the 2nd day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 3rd day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 4th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 5thday of Christmas, we got from CVS 5 golden puke buckets! 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 6th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 6 stomach cramps, 5 golden puke buckets! 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 7th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 7 hours of heaving, 6 stomach cramps, 5 golden puke buckets! 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s 2 blood shot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 8th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 8 days of puking, 7 hours of heaving, 6 stomach cramps, 5 golden puke buckets!. 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 9th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 9 ER visits, 8 days of puking, 7 hours of heaving, 6 stomach cramps, 5 golden puke buckets! 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 10th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 10 plastic baggies, 9 ER visits, 8 days of puking, 7 hours of heaving, 6 stomach cramps, 5 golden puke buckets! 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 11th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 11 days of missed work, 10 plastic baggies, 9 ER visits, 8 days of puking, 7 hours of heaving, 6 stomach cramps, 5 golden puke buckets! 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

On the 12th day of Christmas, we got from CVS, 12 toilet bowels, 11 days of missed work, 10 plastic baggies, 9 ER visits, 8 days of puking, 7 hours of heaving, 6 stomach cramps, 5 golden puke buckets! 4 suppositories, 3 IV’s, 2 bloodshot eyes, and a puking party and a big mess.

 

Here's to lots of laughter! ((((((((((Everyone)))))))))))) -Janet

T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house,

The lights were all on, and my retching the only sound.

I went to the bathroom with my bucket in hand,

After puking for hours I found I could no longer stand.

So sitting in the floor, head on the toilet-

I said to myself, “This has to get better, don’t it?”

My answer came quickly, as it always had,

“I can go through no holiday without an attack.”

My Head In The Bucket

(sung to the tune of "Away in a Manger")

 

 

My head in the bucket I keep by my bed,

A trip to the ER I fearfully dread.

I hunt for the Zip-locs on the way to the car,

I can shift while I puke like a real NASCAR star.

 

The ER is crowded and I have to stay,

In the small waiting room where noisy kids play.

The fluorescent lighting is hard on my eyes,

If I don't stop this puking I think I will cry.

 

I curse the Puke Monster, and beg him to leave,

My body's so tired, I don't want to heave.

I've filled up my Zip-locs and one large trash can,

Look, Here comes the nurse with IV Ativan!

 

The fluids are flowing, I'm finally asleep,

The world could stop turning, I won't hear a peep.

This battle is over, I stopped this attack.

I pray the Puke Monster will never come back.

 

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL

I was reading and laughing when my son wanted to know why.  So I read all of the CVS Songs to him and he thinks they are all great!

 

Just the kind of pick-me-up a 7 year old CVS'r at the end of an episode needed

(To the tune of 'Once in Royal David's City')

 

Once in Royal Victoria Infirmary*,

Stood a lowl'y hospital bed.

In that bed, lay a patient,

In a bucket was her head.

 

In her arm

was a cathetor,

A little bit nicer

than an alligator [couldn't think og anything else to rhyme with cathetor!]

 

----------------

 

Hmmm cant think of anymore lyrics for that...if anyone has any suggestions feel free to add to it.

 

 

Or you could have

 

Deck the halls with lots of Zofran,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la la la la.

 

Try your best not to cough so loud, man,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la la la la.

 

Line your floor with past-dated newspapers,

Fa-la-la-la-la-la, la la la

 

'Tis the season for such capers,

Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la la la.

 

 

 

 

*A Hospital located in Newcastle Upon Tyne, in England.

All these clever and funny carols and poems! Its so good to see the blessing of humor! Its funny to me that there are so many people out there that just don't "get it"...you have to go through it before you understand the humor in it! I pray for a healthy holiday for everyone...and remember, Christmas is in the heart and can be celebrated when you are feeling better..don't get stuck on the date and let it overwhelm you.

A little early for these and the Night Before Christmas poem seems to be lost.

But overall, it is good to not lose this thread that is getting old.

Guitar Girl, by the way, is from the UK.  She was a teen who was pretty sick and worried about being in public.  Years later we received an email from her.  She struggled lots but she eventually made her way through her Masters Degree and was living in Sweden (I hope I am right on the detail).  She wrote a letter to CVSA and thanked the support and encouragement she received on the MB for helping her to move forward in her life.  

I can remember when she was upset over having been sick on a bus.  Now she is long past her Masters Degree and I hope living a wonderful life.
