I’m four years old.
I’m sitting in front of some Bugs Bunny cartoons with a coloring book and crayons.
I rip a strip of paper from one of the pages and roll it into a tube shape. I push that tube up my right nostril.
It hurts and panic sets it! I run to my Grandma and tell her what I did. She tries to pull it out with a pair of tweezers. That doesn’t work because I SHOVED that paper up there as far as it would go.
Both of us are in a panic now. What to do, what to do?
She thinks for a minute while I cry.
She goes to the spice cabinet and grabs the pepper. A handful is blown into my face.
Sneezing ensues. Snot is everywhere! The tube of paper eventually flies out and lands several feel away.
What the hell was I thinking when I did that? What outcome did I expect? I can assure you that I never tried that again!
