Ahh the joys of not paying enough attention

So, after cooking up some salmon (and whatnot) over at Marciano's house on Sunday, my throat kind of felt like it had something stuck in it. It didn't hurt, just kind of tickled. I figured it was a bit of green bean skin or something and didn't worry too much about it. All day yesterday though, it started hurting more and more, and felt like I was getting poked in the back of the throat. So after realizing that I had probably swallowed a salmon bone,I perused the internet to figure out what the best way to get an annoying bone out of ones throat. The big thing I found was that most fish bones actually get stuck in the tonsils. To be more specific; they get stuck in the holes in your tonsils called 'Crypts'. So after trying to eat a big hunk of bread (a.k.a. Sonic cheesburger bun) and the pain not going away, I decided that when I got home I would take a peak to see if I could locate and remove the bone without going to the doctor.

The look on DaNece's face when I told her this was priceless. She recommended that I go to the doctor. I recommended that she hold my flashlight. After digging around in there with a pair of tweezers, i located the bone and after a couple of tries i managed to yank it out.   HOOOORAAAAAAYYYYY, now I can swallow without getting stabbed!

Heck yeah! Next time you got something stuck in your throat, come on over. I'll make sure to keep the tweezers at the ready... :)
