Puked 50 times uncontrollable, lots of bad body things happening, finds these nice old ladies who thinks he has been poisoned, gets in an ambulance, they gave him an IV, then they put him on a plane, he posted some pics on insta, another ambulance, 5 hours in the hospital. Gave him a megadose of antibiotics. CLAPS for Tommy being a rad human and being able to laugh about it, we <3 u
