The funny story this week came from a delightful 5 year-old during her routine well-child check. While examining her, I discovered a bright green foreign object lodged high up in her nose.
Dr. Wonnacott: “What’s that up your nose?”
5 year-old: Gives a quizzical look as if to say “Nose? What nose?”
After failed attempts to blow out the object, I finally reached in with a forceps and pulled it out. It was a large, green, craft pom-pom. I held the object in the forceps up right in front of her, so she could see.
Dad: “Why did you put that up your nose?”
5 year-old: “I didn’t do it.”
Dad: “Oh, really?”
5 year-old: (Firmly now) “NO, I didn’t do it.”
So if anyone happens to have any leads on who could have possibly stuck a craft pom-pom up this child’s nose, it would be greatly appreciated. Because it seems to be a BIG mystery.
