Plugged Up

I remember when I was younger, I would chew gum a lot and I even fell asleep with gum in my mouth and woke up with it in my hair.  It was really bad.  My mom had to cut it out of my hair and I had a big chunk of hair missing.  Needless to say, she was pissed.  I wasn’t to concerned about it, but hey, I’m a kid, what did I care.  One day, I accidentally swallowed my gum.  It may or may not have been on purpose, but for arguments sake, let’s just say it was an accident.  Anyway, I told my mom and she went off on me.  Talking about, I told you that I didn’t want you chewing gum anymore and this and that and this it what happens when you don’t listen.  Then, she told me that the gum was going to plug me up because my tummy wouldn’t be able to digest it.  Okay, I don’t know what digest means but tell me more of this plugged up scenario you speak of.  She told me that because the gum is sticky, it would get stuck in my tummy and it would block me from going poop.  Oh my gosh.  My eyes bugged out of my head as I was trying to wrap my head around what I was just told.  Then, I asked her what would happen if I don’t go poop and she goes as far as to say, “Your tummy will blow up”.  What?!!  Now my eyes start welling up as I am trying not to show her that I’m terrified.  I was at a loss for words.  I couldn’t think of one word to say.  All I kept hearing was BOOM!!  Oh man, I was in a panic, I didn’t know what to do, think, or say.  I finally shouted at her to take me to the hospital so they could do surgery and take the gum out.  She then starts laughing.  Huh??  Why is she laughing?  Then, she says she was just kidding.  What!!  You don’t tell a kid that their tummy is going to explode and then say just kidding.  I swear, I was so scared that I wasn’t going to poop.  I tried to make myself poop just to put my mind at ease.  I finally did, and boy was I relieved.  Literally and figuratively speaking.  What are some of the things your parents or elders told you to scare you about something you’ve eaten?  Sound off…
