The short item, a clinical image in this week's New England Journal of Medicine, explains that a 30-year-old woman with a history of bulimia had been bragging to friends that she no longer had a gag reflex.

Her husband later disclosed that 4 years earlier she had swallowed a knife that required surgical removal with exploratory laparotomy.

That should her, "Her husband, the lucky s.o.b.,..."

Looks like a butter knife,
swallowed blunt end first
Still gonna need someone going after it,
ain't coming back up same way it went down

Apparently she did something like this 4 years ago
And she's bulimic
Needed surgery to extract

The Husband needs to separate for prayer and fasting,
for a LONG Time
SHE'S Too high maintenance

I eat my peas with honey.
I've done it all my life.
They may taste kind of funny,
But it keeps 'em on my knife.

Doctors have similar devices, but they call them fancier names.

And theirs come with lights and cameras. And bigger price tags.

Rain, huh? I think you have different clouds in your clime.

I admit, I find the subject of this thread quite amusing as the only thing I ever accidentally swallowed was mouthwash.
And that was only because I got slapped on the back by the eldest of the three of us.

Solid objects?
No.
Not my style.

The lady of subject of this thread..
I can just see being a carnival barker and bemusing the audience with the question of what might she swallow next.
“A roll of coins?”

Done!

"August" used to sometimes mean noble and impressive.
