A Short Monday Story

So, there I was, standing in the kitchen, eating leftover Chinese food over the sink.

Suddenly, an errant and goopy snow pea lodged itself in my throat. I started to cough, and hack, and gag. At that moment, my fiancé came to my rescue, running in from the living room.

“Here, Shan, have a glass of water.”

Unfortunately, there wasn’t any water. In his haste, he left it sitting on the coffee table. Instead, his hand was in almost a perfect pantomime of holding a glass of water.

Thought one: Oh, so this is how I die.

Thought two: This is hilarious.

Luckily, the helpless laughter dislodged the snow pea. Call it a Heimlich via hilarity.

Brett - What, me eating over the sink, or Brando forgetting the water?

Haha, that's awesome! I'll have to try that one next time I'm literally dying from food. (Happens a lot more often then I'd like to admit.)

Sounds like true love to me. Kinda along the lines of "Give a woman a a glass of water and you'll stop her from choking today. Teach her to get a glass of water while she's gasping for air you'll save her while you're out drinking beer with the boys and can't get the water for her yourself."
