spazzhappy: 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.
KatjaMouse: 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.
