Note To Self, Part Doh!

When one is distracted by music, Twitter, and the Chow hound's obsession with a little rubber ducky and one takes a large gulp of one's drink, forgetting that one has switched from Peach Tea to Diet Coke, one should remember the following tips in coping with the surprise:

2. If one catches oneself mid-gasp and realizes one is about to fill one's lungs with Diet Coke, one should not clamp one's throat closed while still keeping one's lips closed.

4. When Diet Coke forcibly enters one's nasal cavity one should not reflexively snort.

  2. Huh... I don't know. Diet Coke sinus douching may be an option the next time a sinus cold hits. If it works, it works.

  3. I think this happened to me when I was little. I was sick today (great timing, missed a quiz or test in three classes), so I might have to try this.

  4. I think people may want to start using diet coke rather than water in their neti pots after this post.
