Here's a nightmare scenario no one ever thought to fear: what if your earring falls into your inhaler?
It's something you don't think about until you have a piece of Batman-themed jewelry lodged in your throat. But if you manage to survive the incident, you'll get a great nickname out of it.
Reddit user emdarko posted a photo to the website with this caption:
Bat earring found it's way into my inhaler.
14 hours in the ER and one surgery later, I am now known as bat girl.
Further proof/content in comments.
Here's that radiograph of her throat, complete with Batman bling:
Sure, 14 hours of surgery is a terrifying ordeal...but maybe it was all worth it for a story this good?
Many Reddit users found the whole story pretty hilarious (since the poster turned out ok).
Emdarko then offered up even more X-rays and photos from before and DURING her operation:
This one is a bit hard to swallow....
But what became of the earring? According to emdarko, she got to keep the earring and still wears it.
But, pics or it didn't happen so...
Some other Redditors had been in similar situations with their own inhalers.
This is why the pharmacy gives it to you with a cap on it guys!
And others just had experience with inhaling something other than air by mistake.
Emdarko shared what it actually feels like to have Gotham's vengeance stuck in your throat. Turns out it's something more than a few of us have experienced with a certain brand of flavored tortilla chips.
Wow! We're all glad you're ok, emdarko. But please, be careful with what you inhale in the future.
