I probably should have seen this coming
This happened to me this weekend:
4-year-old: "Daddy, my tummy hurts."
Yog: "I'm sorry buddy, what's wrong?"
4-year-old: "I don't know. It just hurts."
Yog: "Did you bump into something?"
4-year-old: "No. It's hurting. REALLY BAD."
Yog: "Do you need me to kiss it?"
4-year-old: (Thoughtful) Okay.
Yog: "Okay buddy, here we go... hi tummy... I want you to feel better... mmmm..."
4-year-old: "BBBBLLLLLELEEEEEEEUUUUUUUUUURRGGHHHH!!!!!!!!! !"

Were you at least smart enough to be on a non carpet surface?

No, of course not. On the sofa. Over carpet.
And now as an update, my wife just sent me a text to say the 5-year-old just barfed in the backseat of her car... and I am leaving work early, because I am next, and I prefer to do my barfing in my own pot. Man that moved fast.

Went through my family too. Similar situation, oldest says he doesn't feel good, next thing he's projectile vomiting on the floor. Two days later the younger one and the wife get it the same night while we were in Montana. From there it went to the grandparents. Nasty bug. Skipped me though, I credit that with alcohol being a natural antiseptic.

A little while back two of my girls got sick and had ear infections. The ear infections messed up their balance and what not and caused nausea. They barfed almost every half hour (not at the same time of course, so really we had a barf almost every 15 or 20 minutes) and it came without warning. We got them into the doc first thing in the morning but it was a long night of constant mopping and laundry.

First time I ever had to clean someone else's puke out of my beard.
Of course, as I was frantically throwing the child in the shower, trying to keep the puke on my head from sliding onto the floor, and grabbing various cleaning implements and trying to prioritze the disaster recovery, the five-year-old was full of helpful newsbulletins the entire time as well.
"DADDY! There's barf on the sofa."
"DADDY! There's barf on the carpet."
"DADDY! I can still smell the barf."
