I went to Old Broad's Night at the casino last night with a friend to play my whopping $20 comp.  We were sitting at the Keno machines.  At one point my friend started pulling things out of her purse looking for her chapstick. Yes...they keep the vents on the floor pumping that ice cold oxygen up your pant leg so that no one falls asleep while pushing the button.  Your lips and mouth dry up and I have actually brought a tube of vaseline with me.  I digress.  Anyway, I look over and see she has pulled out a nice, big  baggie that appears to have food in it...trailmix or something.  So I asked her if it had nuts in it, as I am allergic.  She gave me this weird look and said 'No..' then stood up to see if the chapstick was in her coat  pocket.  YUMMY...I was starving so I grabbed me a fistful of whatever was in the bag.  CHOMP!  OMG...It was home made potpourri that a patient made her.(she's a nurse practitioner).  I had thistles and something that felt like sand burs poking into the roof of my mouth.  I spit the whole wad into my coke cup and I am sure everyone around me thought I was chewing tobacco.
This is the second time in my life I have done this.  One other time was at a baby shower and the hostess had but this lovely bowl of what looked like a dried fruit mix on the coffee table.  They had to pull the 'spikes' out of my tongue with tweezers and call poison control because we had no idea if there was something poisonous in it. Their answer was 'if my throat started to swell shut to get to the ER.' 
I'm writing this so I'm not dead.  But boy does the roof of my mouth hurt.  That's what I get for helping myself to something without asking if it's food!  I think I need some of Sherrine's 'medicinal rum.'

OMG Donna, that is what you get for trying before somebody offers it to you. I like the idea of the tshirt that says, needs supervision. You are too funny.

I hope that you had a good time anyway and at least you had fresh breath. lol...

Oh you guys...Now I know with absolute certainty that ALL of you have popped something in your mouth that wasn't what you expected.  Haven't you ever been at a dinner, taken a toothpick and stabbed three or four chunks of what you thought was cheese only to find out it was butter??? about trying to eat a plastic 'ornamental' leaf of parsley that was put on your salad plate?  Never sunk your teeth into a wax apple???  Now, I know you have.

My gum is still sore...I think there might still be a piece of a thistle in it.  Think I'll go rinse my mouth out with Lysol.

 Well, you got this new lurker off her rather large duff!  tongue   Can't tell you how good it felt to actually laugh out loud, sitting here in the middle of the night! Thankfully I didn't wake up my sleeping grandchild! yeah Thanks so much - can't fathom why I waited so long to get in on the fun...  My daughter told me about this site a while back but...
Seriously, I value all of you already - so often feel 'been there, done that' when I'm reading your posts. blush
