#930 Finally getting a piece of popcorn that’s been stuck in your teeth all day out

Don't be fooled by the sunny exterior

You know when you can just feel that popcorn kernal stuck back there in swampy recesses of your mouth and it’s totally infuriating?

Yes, your tongue slides past its smooth surface unsuccessfully, your toothbrush’s flimsy bristles just can’t shake it, and even your fingernail can’t quite unwedge it from the tight molar deathgrip it’s stuck in.

So the fork is dropped and the dessert lays unfinished, the conversation fades to a blurry, distant noise, and the world stops around you as you just keep trying and trying and trying to get that popcorn kernal out. You close your eyes and squint, you tilt your head, you emit a deep-bass “nnnnnnn” noise, as your body directs all available faculties at flushing this thing out. But it just sits there tightly, clogging and gumming up your entire system like a pile of defaulted mortgages.

Then suddenly it falls out.

  1. Truly, this is the most cleansing and liberating feeling in the world. Almost makes me want to get popcorn stuck in there, just so I can get it out.. almost.

  2. That is good, but I like:
    … you know when you are tipping back in your chair? and then it starts to fall back, and you catch yourself just before it does?

    That feeling — thats the one

  3. gosh, that happens tome all the freakin’ time,
    I remember when I was talking to my crush at school, and it was stuck between my two front teeth, Bummer.

  4. While cleaning a patient’s teeth I found a piece of popcorn kernel. I asked her when she had last eaten popcorn – it had been almost a week!

  5. That is almost as great at getting a piece of popcorn that you didnt even know was there, in fact you dont even remember eating popcorn. Its a real thinking situation.

  6. I concur. So much relief.
    The funny part is that right after that, you start eating popcorn again, and then get another kernel stuck. Just for it to fall out again.

  7. iv’e had a small piece of a popcorn kernel stuck in my mouth, it almost feels like it’s in my toungue, everytime i swallow, or forget and make a sudden move with my tounge it hurts, and i cant seem to point out were its t, it deep in the back of my tounge, iv’e tried, brushing, fingers, just about everything, but nothing is working! If you have any advice please email me.! shrtnsassie5326@aol.com

  8. The AWESOME relief here highlights why #976 (flossing) is so AWESOME. With all of our failed attempts, a simple piece of string brings sweet relief.

    1. thanks for teaching me how to eat it at the computer Chad, I may have otherwise withered away here;)

  9. A wedge of popcorn just came out after two and a half days!! The moment of pulling the kernel out was so sweet…. Again! Again!
