Remember When.......

It's time for another round of "Remember When". And today is an awesome one. For reals.......

My junior and senior year of high school I attended a vocational Culinary Arts program at a nearby high school (transportation was a pain in the rear...ugh). I was in love with the program. I learned so many things about cooking, managing a kitchen, managing front of the house. I could go on and on with everything that I learned.

Anywho, in the spring of my junior year we (a couple of us students) were making cupcakes or muffins or something like that. Something that required toothpick testing to see if it was done.

So I had toothpick in my mouth and it started to break apart (you know, from being in my mouth so long) so I tossed it. I took a drink of water after that and then all hell broke loose.

A PIECE OF TOOTHPICK LODGED IN MY THROAT!!!

Yes, I am totally for real. It hurt super bad. My teachers kinda flipped out. 911 was called. I was taken from high school in an ambulance to the hospital.

**If you know anything about high school you will know that THIS was the most embarrassing part of the whole ordeal. Taken from high school in an ambulance, no joke y'all**

So we get to the hospital and the really hot General Hospitalish doctor decides he is going to put a scope in my throat while I am wide awake to see if he can get it out. Umm, yeah. NO. I ended up throwing up from my gag reflexes. And of course the toothpick piece was still there.

They ended up putting me to sleep and removing it that way. But wait, there's more.

I didn't realize this till the next day but I was still gagging and ready to puke at a moments notice. So my grandma took me back to the hospital to get me checked out. Turns out they actual cut my uvula (the little hangy ball in the back of your throat) and it was hanging down in the throat causing my gag reflexes to go crazy. So they cut it. EWE!!!

I still have most of my uvula and no I am not going to show you.

So yeah. That was probably one of my most embarrassing moments ever.
