I once had broccoli come out of my nose. Honest!

Zowie! AuthorComments!

Lisa--Broccoli? Do I want to know? Yes. Yes I do.

Jeannine--thanks for sharing your book with the world! I'm watching out for the next one.

I snarfed while eating broccoli. Then I choked. And then had THE WORST PAIN in my nose and a huge headache.

I ended up blowing my nose really hard and the unchewed broccoli came out.

I kept the broccoli for a while. I'm not sure why.
