Choking

I almost choked today on a piece of apple.

I purposely did not say "choked to death." I could breathe through my nose so I knew I wouldn't die.

But for a moment or two I was not sure what the heck was going on in my throat.

It started when I was swallowing a second piece of apple. At that point, the first piece decided it was stuck. I started coughing and spit most of the apple out. Just enough stayed stuck.

It was at this point that I tried breathing through my nose so I knew whether or not I'd need Heimlich'ing.

After that, I relaxed and coughed it out.
