I Didn’t Die While Eating A Blue Sweet-Tart.


The other day, I was just laying around with my boyfriend (who is a complete dreamboat and not even imaginary) eating SweetTarts because about 75% of my diet is made up of candy. I popped a blue flavored SweetTart into my mouth and promptly managed to start choking on it. Most people say that when you’re about to die, your life flashes before your eyes. That didn’t happen to me but I sort of wish it did because I bet it would be a really funny movie. Instead of recalling bit of my hilarious and happy life, all I could think was “But blue isn’t even my favorite flavor, I can’t die eating a blue SweetTart, that doesn’t even make sense.” And that’s true because purple is my favorite SweetTart flavor and would definitely be my flavor choice in a SweetTart death scenario. That way, at my funeral people could say “Well, at least she died eating her favorite flavored SweetTart.” and I think it would help them with their grieving.

But, I didn’t die eating a blue flavored SweetTart. I managed to dislodge it in less than a second and it’s a good thing too because my boyfriend was about to heimlichย the hell out of me. Once I realized I was A-ok, I couldn’t help but laugh uncontrollably for about 5 minutes because how weird would it be to die while eating a blue flavored SweetTart?

My boyfriend didn’t think it was as funny, but that’s probably just because he didn’t know it was a blueย SweetTart I choked on.

    Yikes! I’m glad you’re okay.

    Oddly enough, years ago when I was a child, I started to choke on a Life-Saver candy. I was basically breathing through the hole in the center for a minute, until I managed to cough it up somehow.

    I remember thinking, “the irony! killed by a Life-Saver!”

  2. According to this logic, my dream death scenario would be to suffocate during a make-out session with Second Husband.

    So glad your gag reflex recognized that it was blue.

  3. Yes it would have been embarrassing for your friends and family to hear you died by choking on a SweetTart, but it would be fun for all the accounts of the tragedy to mention your dreamboat boyfriend being by your side.

    1. Hahaha! I love it! I’m listening to The Silver Chair right now, and A Horse and His Boy is mentioned at the beginning. I had to make myself stop from switching over, because I really wanted to listen to this one. That’s why I put it in. But now I’ve got that one on my mind again! Too bad I can’t do two at once.

  4. Mrs. Paladin and I were eating in a Pei Wei restaurant once a couple of years back. She got a piece of Beef & Brocolli stuck in her windpipe. My first clue that something was amiss was when she took a drink of Iced Tea thinking it might wash it down – and then promptly spewed it all over the table (and me) when it wouldn’t go down either. It was a “WTF” moment for me at first, but I’ll never forget the look of panic in her eyes when I looked up.

    I jerked her up from the chair and Heimliched the bejezus out of her in the middle of the restaurant – clearing the blockage. Aside from being embarassed by everyone staring at us, she was fine after that. I can understand the BF not being amused, though. Choking is scary for the choker, but it’s a sphincter moment watching someone you love choking as well.

    And yes… I did successfully use the “But I saved your life” card for at least a week to get out of having to wash dishes after dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh my word! That’s sounds a lot scarier than what happened to me- I hope Mrs. Paladin is ok, I imagine that was realyl scary. This story is just further proof I want you on my team when the apocalypse comes.

      1. I’ve choked on corn before but that’s not nearly as exciting as a blue sweetTart! My exit would have been in front of two hundred people (i was at a dinner conference). I should have written down my thoughts. I was preparing for embarrassment!

    1. Is she supposed to snort them? Then there’s a possibility of sweet tart overdose…no matter what you do, you’re not safe. lol…nice post. Made me smile ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and I should add…totally glad you didn’t die ๐Ÿ˜›
