choke hold

Today I was sitting at my desk.
I started to take a drink of water
and I suddenly felt a catch in my throat.

I coughed a little cough.
Put the water bottle down.
Coughed again
and again
and again.

I coughed, on and off,
for over an hour.

Not

one

person

came in to see if I was ok.


I could have been choking to death at my desk
and no one would have known.



Which begs the question:

What is wrong with people?

I don't think it takes an hour to choke to death!
That is weird though...no one came to see if you were turning blue?
