Okay, wait for it....
For years my dad threatened that the next time my sister or I got tonsillitis, we were both going into the hospital to have our tonsils removed. It never happened, and I've still got mine. Right now, I wish I didn't.
I've got a piece of water chestnut stuck behind the right one and no amount of coughing, water, popcorn, or even reaching back with my finger will dislodge it. And I can feel it. Eew.
So this is what I get for trying to eat a healthy vegetarian lunch. O.o It figures!!
Yeah, I know this is the perfect opportunity to make a bunch of dirty jokes about how to remedy the situation. Lol. Actually...
Hey! Don't you dare!! :P
I did try my father's cure-all salt water gargling. As I thought, I couldn't get the water behind my tonsils without swallowing it and then trying to make it come back out. Yuck. I hate barfing.
It didn't work, anyway. :). Still stuck back there.
