What dumb things have you done in your past that could’ve injured you or made you ill, but didn’t do either?|
Me? Well, once in the orthodontist’s office, I was having some kind of procedure done and was supposed to fill a plastic cup of water and rinse out my mouth. All the regular sinks were being used, so I went into the bathroom to use that one.
Well, for some reason the faucet was oriented so that I couldn’t get the cup under it very well, so I plugged up the sink and filled it with water, put my head down, and sucked the water out of the basin.
Remember, this was a sink used by most, if not all, of the patients at this orthodontist’s office.
I was 12.
How I never got dysentery I’ll never know.
