Sometimes the things that come out of Kate's mind baffle me…..
Kate was drinking some General Foods International Coffee cocoa tonight. She coughed and 'cocoa' got all over the table.
I casually asked, "Did it go down the wrong hole?" Wow did that throw Miss Kate for a loop.
Kate: "I don't know what you mean."
Me: "When you swallowed, did it feel like it was going into a hole other than your throat?"
Kate: "I don't know what you're talking about."
By now I am laughing…"Forget it Kate."
Kate after a pause: "Which hold do we use?"
Now I am really laughing, because Kate is so innocently dingy. I hadn't realized at this point that she isn't being dingy, she just has no clue.
Kate: "Let's google two holes in your mouth."
I oblige, because really, I need graphics at this point. So we look at photos. I show her the trachea and esophagus. I show her which one takes in air versus food. I remind her of my choking crisis last March. We have a good conversation. Her final response?
Kate: "Kinda dumb."
Kate, Olivia, and Brady were just bathing. Olivia says, "Oh yuck, Brady's penis." Kate: "Olivia they're his privates. He can do whatever he wants with them."
