Something to Write Home About

Stephanie

I saw this article the other day about a 76 year old woman who just had removed from her intestines a pen that she had swallowed TWENTY FIVE years ago. Once removed, it still worked! But who really cares about the pen, if she knew it was in there, I’m curious why it wasn’t a priority to get it back out again! I don’t even know how she managed to sleep at night knowing that there was a long pointed object lodged somewhere in her abdomen that could potentially poke a hole in something fairly important in the organ department.

When I searched for other pen swallowing incidents, I happened upon this rather amusing video…

  1. I found myself reading the article and repeating “You have GOT to be kidding!” On so many levels…really, do you NOT believe someone who says they’ve swallowed a pen? Especially one who would be poking her tonsils with one in the first place? SIGH. And, I suppose the temptation was too great to not try it once removed…but, ew, really? And don’t you have to wonder about the content of an ink that can last that long in that sort of environment? Thanks for the shoulder-shimmy of ennncccchhhhh for the day! :D

  3. Thank you, what a good way to wake up in the morning. Nothing like a good laugh to start the day off right. That was FUNNY!
