Vomit angels

A few months ago the husband, myself and a few friends were having a few drinks at a Mexican restaurant. Near us, were three Mexican guys sitting at a table covered in empty beer bottles and shot glasses. We watched them take shot after shot of tequila.

After a couple of hours of this, one of the guys got up, ran in the direction of the bathroom, puked on the floor before he got there and slipped in it. It was mostly liquid and from the sound of it I thought he had spilled his beer at first. He performed what looked similar to the Russian squat and kick dance in his own vomit, holding onto a chair and a table to stop himself from falling on his ass in the pool of puke. As he tried to stand up, his feet kept slipping in the pool keeping him suspended about a foot above it.

Everyone stopped what they were doing and stared at the spectacle of arms and legs flailing. He finally pulled himself up and toward the bathroom where he continued puking on the floor, the wall and the sink, according to one of the waiters, who was throwing napkins on the vomit on the floor. It looked like someone made a snow angel in the vomit...or a vomit angel, rather.

What you have witnessed was an ancient ritual conducted by alcohol worshippers. Almost makes one turn Christian.
