I thought "evacuate" meant "to vomit" because in the sequel to 'Nanny McPhee' (called Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang), a character throws up and another character refers to it as an "evacuation".

I used to be hyperaware of the sound of my pulse beating against my ear when I'd lay my head against my pillow at night. I thought it was the sound of my bed floating on a cloud, pace by pace closer to dreamland. If my bed arrived at its destination before I fell asleep, I'd be trapped in dreamland forever even when awake. Luckily, I could bring myself back to my room and restart the journey if I opened my eyes before the trip was complete.
