Holy Macaroni

Scene: My sister-in-law (Macaroni Mom) calling the doctor because my 1 yr-old nephew had stuck a piece of macaroni up his nose.

Macaroni Mom: Hi Doctor, my son has lodged a piece of macaroni up his nose and we can't, for the life of us, get it out.

Doctor: Can he breath?

Macaroni Mom: Well...yes...the macaroni has a hole in the middle.

Doctor: Well that's just hilarious.

Macaroni Mom: *awkward silence*...yeah. So what should we do?

Doctor: If he can breath then just do nothing. It will dissolve on it's own.

So there you have it. One nephew is aging at the speed of light and the other has macaroni on his brain.

Which one do you think takes after me?

Macaroni will dissolve in his nose?

What??

Angela said...

Well I guess letting the macaroni dissolve is better than trying to get it out with tweezers and having a possible medical emergency with that...

Marie said...

oh this is just too easy of a question. macaroni nephew takes after good ol' uncle narm.

i think you secretly taught him how to do that.

Well, he's going to be the coolest kid in school, that's for sure.

so whats a couple days with a macaroni up your nose?

Kellie said...

Hahahaha!!! This is hilarious. But seriously, since when does macaroni dissolve? I had no idea. I wonder what else would dissolve if stuck up your nose. You should test this theory. Maybe start w/ a cheerio or something. It's got a hole in it too, so you should still be able to breathe.

So this is what happens when you act out the Yankee Doodle song.

Maxie said...

Obviously the macaroni one.

Can't they get it out with tweezers?!

Chocobo said...

At least the macaroni doesn't whistle.

Hey, maybe if you tried it you could get it positioned just right to be a nose whistle!

For $50 bucks I'll stick a piece of macaroni up my husband's nose and see if it dissolves to test the theory. He won't mind. Whatcha' think?

Haha, hope the kid is okay. . .and that he learned his lesson!

Sooo.... I can eat Macaroni by osmosis through my nose and carry on a conversation? How come I had to wait 45 years to find this out?

Am I the only one that wants to put macaroni up their nose to see if it dissolves?

Good thing I don't have any to stick up there.

I don't know if I'm comfortable with that Dr's advice!
But that was pretty funny... poor little guy!
