Creative murder technique

I was driving down the road with my husband and daughter one summer day before my daughter graduated from high school.  As I often do I sucked spit down into my lungs and started to cough.  Apparently after four decades my body still hasn’t figured out that the trachea is for oxygen not liquids.  I started coughing very hard.
My husband looked at me for a minute as I struggled to drive and hack up a lung and then told me, “Stop choking, you’re driving.”
My daughter laughed so hard she almost peed herself and I nearly expired as I tried to cough and laugh at the same time.
Way to try to kill me, Edwin.

  1. I was not trying to kill you! I was trying to save your life, crazy coughing driver.
