In a newly invented game--one that he thought of himself--my six-year old son swallowed a quarter. The game? A spin-off of Hungry, Hungry Hippos: "Stuff Your Mouth With Coins--See How Much You Can Hold." Except he couldn't hold as much as he thought he could, and down went the quarter.

This post tells the humorous story of what he thought was going to be his last few minutes of life on this earth, and ends with a nail-biting clencher.
