The Penny in the Pot

It's Keda's fault that I am writing this today....

I have to tell you, that when I was little kid and swallowed a penny, I had it in my mouth in bed. I stood at the top of the steps, long after I was supposed to be asleep, and told my mom "I sw-sw-swa-swallowed a pe-pe-pen-penny." (Sob sob sob) and she thought I said a PiN and had a HEART ATTACK on the spot thinking my insides were about to be poked through. Once she got me calmed down and found out it was a penny.... She said "and how did that happen." and I told her that I was lying in bed, and the penny was {*innocently*} lying on my pillow next to me, and I rolled over on my side and was facing the penny and my mouth musta been open because it just slid RIGHT down my throat!


And then my grandma had to squeeze and shake me and comment on how I was worth the most of any grandkid. And then when it finally came out, my dad had to videotape the "penny in the pot." Not many people can say they are lucky enough to have that videotape in their archive.
