Tale #124

Have I ever told you about the time .... 
I got a fish tank rock stuck up my nose.
no lie.
I was one of THOSE kids.
I don't know what possessed me to stick a fish rock up there...but I did...and it got stuck.

I remember it was one of the summer days I was spending at a cousin's house (i.e. my parents weren't around).
Who's to say if I was "talked into doing it" or if I was just really that smart.

But the rock went up the nostril.

and the more I tried to get it out ... the further UP it went.

Once the panic set in and I realized I MIGHT have to tell an adult what I did (which was a TERRIFYING thought)...the rock went further UP...

and UP...
and UP...

Once I realized that maybe a finger wasn't a good way to get it out I started to do a bunch of nose blowing and snot rockets (lovely visual right)?

That little booger eventually came out.

I can't make this stuff up.

That's my tale. The time I got a fish tank rock stuff up my nose.
