I don't know if he has a small throat or if he's just careless when he eats but Tom pulled his stunt of choking at our evening meal tonight.
He's done it a few times during our marriage, once on some Tom thumb drop sweets and again while eating fish and chips where the vinegar went down the wrong hole.
If you have ever witnessed anyone choking you will know what it's like to watch.
With Tom's lungs being pretty useless anyway doing the Heimlich Maneuver isn't really an option as I would probably kill him so I banged on his back and felt like a headless chicken not knowing quite what to do.
Luckily he finally managed to take a breath but I was in pieces I can tell you.
We are both sitting here now with a large Gin and Tonic trying to relax.
Life throws some situations at us doesn't it and always when we least expect them.
