Once upon a time there was a little girl.
While this little girl's mama made lunch she decided to remove her barrettes and put them in her mouth.
We will never be certain.
Sometime during this experiment in hair accessory taste testing a scary thing happened.
These two barrettes moved to the back of the throat.
This little girl coughed and sputtered.
Her mama came running and found the two hair clips stuck in the back of her throat.
Her mama managed to pull one out and had her finger on the second one when the little girl pushed her hand out of the way and with a gulp swallowed it down.
Just like that old woman and the fly...
..or a little boy and a dime.
Oh dear, I think this mama might be in the running for worst mother of the year award.
Right now she must run, though, she must search through some poo.
