This would only happen to me

Location: Desk
Listening to: Commercials
Days til graduation: Same as before.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH. I just had to update you guys quick. This is ridiculous.

So I went to the walk-in clinic today because I've been having this weird pressure in my upper-throat area and it's hard to swallow sometimes. So I go in and the doctor is like, "Well, you had your thyroid checked recently (for other reasons), but I want to get some x-rays done to see if maybe your epiglottis is inflamed."

So I went to get my neck x-rays done. And at first they didn't work because my pony tail (which I thought was just cloth and plastic) showed up on the print and threw everything off. So they had to re-do them.

And then I went back to the room and sat.

And sat.

And sat.

And then the doctor came back in and was like, "Have you had fish recently? Like, a fish fry or something?" To which I replied that I had (about a week ago). Apparently on my x-rays, it showed up that a small piece of something is stuck in my throat. Presumably a fish bone. How weird is that?!

So now I have to go see the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist to figure out how/when they're going to get it out.

This is the type of thing that only happens to me. But I can't complain that my life is boring!


  1. Woah!! That's so weird/cool!
    I feel like that's something that would happen on Grey's Anatomy or some other ER show.

  2. I would have never guessed fishbone. Who had that in the pool?

  3. Wow, I'd never heard of that happening to anything outside of a cat. You're not a cat person are you?
