The Time I Almost Died 💀

Inspired by @ListPrompts
  1. I am 11 years old. My family and I decided to go out for dinner one night. Just a fam having a nice time.
  2. I decided to order the steak for dinner (this was before I was a vegetarian).
  3. I'm having a great time. Talkin'. Chewin'. Just a preteen having a ball.
  4. I am chewing a particularly big piece of steak for a long time while my family carries on conversation.
  5. As an anxiety-ridden middle schooler, I thought someone would notice I was chewing steak for a long time and be like "look at that girl, she's weird" and thus I TRIED TO SWALLOW
  6. You may be able to see where this is going.
  7. I start actually choking on this piece of steak. My brother is yelling. I forget WHAT he was yelling, but it was close to a yelp, maybe out of confusion.
  8. Luckily, my mom knew the Heimlich!!! She saw me struggling and saved me.
  9. I, of course, burst into tears from embarrassment. The nice man at the bar comforted me. Said he had choked a couple days ago.
  10. That's the closest I've danced with death, I guess.
  11. In hindsight, maybe that's the reason I decided to go vegetarian. I should go reevaluate my decisions.
