I'm participating in the Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge every day in June.

Today's prompt is: "A Guy and a Girl Walk Into a Bar..." Tell us your most amusing Migraine story. I substituted an alternate prompt for today since the real prompt directs us to write a letter to our children and I don't have any.

For most of us it's easy to think of times when migraines have made us sad, upset, lonely, disappointed or angry. But to think of even one time when anything remotely funny could be found in a migraine-related experience is next to impossible.

I'd say the closest thing to a funny migraine-related experience I can come up with is the time I puked into a grocery bag in the car, which then leaked all over me. All the way through my dress and on to the seat under me. It was awesome. Okay, it wasn't. It really sucked, but it was almost two years ago now, so I can look back and smile at the absurdity of the whole thing. (I wrote about that incident in more detail here: The Indignities of Chronic Illness.)
What wasn't funny was when I had to puke into a garbage bag in the car a few weeks ago and in my migraine stupor I let the bag tip and spilled the puke on myself and the floorboard. Seriously? I must have the worst luck!

While I'm regaling you with puke and migraine stories, I must share that I also puked on my kindergarten teacher on a field trip and on my grandma in the car.
