Interesting, strange and weird story.

While she was interrogating a spot on her tonsil with the pen she slipped, fell and swallowed the pen by mistake.


Interrogatting? I wonder if that is a technical term?!

My cordless phone fell in the toilet (after the flush) and was opened and dried but still didn't work properly so I ordered a new handset, the day it arrived the old one woke up and is now back to normal. Once they short circuit I expect it's too late so must have been lucky.
