Get that out of your mouth! As a mother of a 3.5 and 1.5 year old, this is a phrase I say often. You would think I would remember to do that myself.
This week, I went through more silver scrap. As a reseller, my favorite thing I get to do is go through buckets of silver jewelry that is heading to the refinery. I get to see all sorts of things, all different pieces of jewelry.
I saw these “items” in my last “picking”.
I love unusual things. Anything that grabs my eye, I have to grab. The item to the right is hollow, and I thought “This is a strange whistle” and I put it to my mouth to see if it worked. DUMB. I am dumb. In my defense, these two items were not together when I pulled them out. I didn’t see there was a tiny spoon to go with this “tube”.
As soon as I did it, the woman who works at the shop where I do some picking said, That is a coke straw! Now I have no ideas how many nostrils touched this item, but it went in my mouth. YUCK! I learn lessons everyday, and this one I will not forget 😉
