I made so many emergency room trips as a kid. I'm amazed I'm still alive. Ranged from getting hit by a car when I was 6 to getting a kidney bean stuck in my nose once.

/Good times.

That was my sister, she had an obsession with sticking things up her nose. Emergency room for corn kernels, dried beans, plastic beads, etc.

For whatever reason I grew up thinking most kids were just dumbasses. I never shoved foreign objects up my nose or in any other oriffices. Just seemed counter intuitive. My sister, who jumped off a bunk bed because she thought she could fly, never shoved things up her nose. It's like watching Darwin at work I think at times.

/if I had a kid and he shoved legos up his nose, I'd do the gene pool a favor and get him a vasectomy

One of my childhood friends decided to cram a LEGO antenna in his urethra when he was about six. He probably hoped I would never tell that story on the internet, but there you go.

No, I remember my Mom telling me about it after my friend had to go to the doctor to get it removed. I'm guessing she wanted to make sure I knew not to cram LEGO parts in my junk.

Came here to say the same thing. I didn't shove anything up my nose. I didn't eat dirt. I didn't spit. I didn't squash bugs in my hand. I didn't eat my own boogers -- or anyone else's, for that matter. I don't understand what children find appealing about any of those.

For years and years I felt something in my right ear. I would tap it with pencils, scrape it with paperclips, etc.. but could never get it out. In middleschool, on one of those doctor school-visits, I asked about it and after a quick look he told me it was simply dried earwax and to try using a moistened q-tip. Didn't work.

Fast forward to first year of college. Everyone sitting around taking a test, with me once again playing with a mechanical pencil in my ear when I feel something shift. I had never been so excited in my life. I stopped everything and carefully navigated the end of the pencil around the object, slowly rolling it out step by step. After a few minutes, a sudden slipping feeling came and something fell onto the floor. Anxiously, I picked it up and examined it.

It was a big, hard ball of wax.

But then, while playing with it (which I of course was going to do after 10+ years of mystery) some wax flaked off and it was different underneath. I quickly stripped it of all the wax that had accumulated over the past decade.

It was a farking cherry pit.

I had a farking cherry pit in my ear for most of my childhood and didn't realize it. Doctors never noticed it. My parents never noticed it. Lord knows I don't remember putting it in there so I don't even know how it got in there.

my balance and hearing in that ear was a bit off for the next few days, but returned to normal. Some days I miss that little mystery in my life.

My brother stuck a penny up his nose when he was a toddler. I stuck a bean up my nose around the same age. My younger brother shoved a bean up his nose too. By the time me and my younger brother did it, though, my mom didn't freak out any more, she just pushed the other nostril closed and told us to "blow it out hard". Worked too; they she told us not to do that any more.

/listened to her too
//just like when she told us about our older brother putting a penny up his nose as a kid...

When I was a camp counselor back in the day, we had one camper that was extremely high maintenance and always wanted attention. We were in the middle of a wide game activity and this kid keep shoving this woolly bear caterpillar in everyone's faces. One of my fellow counselors took the kid to get rid of it and the kid asked " What do you want me to do with it?"

"I don't care, stick it up your nose"

...

My oldest daughter shoved some chicken nugget pieces up her nose when she was 2. She was acting odd at dinner, turning away from us, but we didn't think anything of it. Later that night, she complained of not feeling well, and she started to get a fever. Ended up taking her to emerg later that night, after a little chunk of chicken fell out of her nose. The doctor used a hook, designed for just this purpose, to remove the rest.

Fast forward 6 months, and we were walking n the tile floor in the front hall, and heard the sound of a little rock hit the ground. She proceeded to pick it up and hide it, so we knew something was up. That something was a trip to the emerg again, to have some ball diamond rocks removed.

She is smarter now.

Got the wheel from a hot wheel jammed way up my nose as a kid. Don't remember it, but my father loves telling the story.

I did this exact same thing when I was about three or so.

It's the clear yellow one in the uppermost left hand corner, the number "143" is beneath it apparently.

At the time- which was about 1980- this was basically the smallest lego brick you could have. I had a set of DUPLO bricks which were mine to play with of course, but Ma had turned her attention for a couple seconds which gave me time to creep my way over to my brother's pile of "oldaboy" legos.

I picked up one of them and immediately began positioning it on the end of my finger, which for whatever reason, I deemed wise to stick up my nostril. By this time, my mother spies me from across the room with a tiny little lego on the end of my finger, poised right beneath my nose.

Now, mom knows that- if she lunges for me- I'm going to panic and jam that little bugger straight up my snuffler. So she start trying to casually move towards me in the hopes she can catch my hand. Unfortunately, by that time, I'd spotted her too, and- knowing she meant to thwart my nasal adventurism, I thrust that sucker right up there.

Last thing I rightly recall was a very large man with a white coat, a porn stache, and a set of very, very long tweezers over me in the ER.

Not a lot of three-year-olds read, at an "abortion-grade" (a year I don't recall in K-8) or otherwise.

My friend's son swallowed a quarter last month. Kids and metal coins. They must like the taste. My aunt pushed my mother down the stairs because she had swallowed a bell off of a shirt and my aunt wanted to see if she would jingle. They were three and four at the time.
