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.

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"

...

I'm guessing this kid reads at an abortion-grade reading level.

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

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.

I got a strange satisfaction from that story. I was right there with you the whole time


Dude. I know, right? That was fantastic. I almost felt the.....yeah.....satisfaction is exactly the right word, when that cherry pit hit the floor. And then the quirky reveal of a cherry pit was delightful. Bravo, good man. Bravo.

My youngest had a penchant for sticking dried beans up his nose. They'd glue them onto paper in daycare, and I guess he figured one could go up his nose.

I noticed it that afternoon when one nostril was much wider (and redder) than the other. I simply took a bobby pin, washed it with alcohol, then coated it in baby oil, popped that bean right out of his nose before he could freak out. After two run ins with me and Dr. Bobbypin (my mom also used them to pop blackheads in my ears as a kid - not a good story, very painful) he didn't shove anything up there again.

It just goes to show that with enough lubrication and patience you can get anything into (and out of) an orifice.

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.

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.
