Yesterday, I walked down the street, and paused to spit out an enormous bloody looking wad of spit. What was the cause? Had I just been mugged? Is it due to internal bleeding? Were my gums bleeding, due to too many cigarettes?
No, I don’t even smoke. Instead, I had just finished eating a big piece of Red Velvet cake for breakfast and also had to deal with morning phlegm. If not for the cake, I would look like any other person. (Any other person who spits on the sidewalk, that is. ) However, should someone see me, they might have assumed I was in need of medical assistance.
Well, any one else feel like volunteering stories of how something perfectly harmless was mistaken for something horrifying? It can be something you did, something a friend did, or even something that your 3rd cousin, twice removed did.
