What the hell was I thinking?

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!
