I was just discussing with one of the attorneys I work for the ridiculous situations kids find themselves in, and I was absolutely shocked to discover that HE NEVER ACCIDENTALLY GOT ANYTHING STUCK UP HIS NOSE. What kind of childhood IS that??
So, it begs the question, and yes, I really wanna know: what interesting things did you guys get stuck up your noses as kids?
I'll kick it off with: Kindergarten. Three pieces of Indian corn. My mom had to come pick me up and take me to the doctor. As I recall, it was an extremely proud moment for her. First and only time in my entire school career that I received lots of attention and admiration from boys. I probably should have remembered that for later on when I was dating. "Note to self: guy is losing interest fast. Must keep his attention." Quickly jams brussels sprout up nose; receives instant offer to bear date's children.
And, sure, I'll kick it off for my sister, too: GIGANTIC purple bead from some broken necklace of my mother's. Good Lord, that thing was huge. Man, did she cry! Man, did I LAUGH! I think Mom was finally able to dig it out with a toothpick or something, seeing as how she'd been through this before. I don't remember; I was too busy laughing. I just remember Sam repeatedly and hysterically jerking her head back whenever Mom was getting ready to go in...
Okay, Internets, who's next? Come play my very fun (and, okay, a tad juvenile) game!
