OK, so I came home from a picnic and was feeling pretty grimy and got in the shower. When I get to the point where I wash my face and neck I use a thick, foamy lather and one of those wash sponges, like this: As I was washing my forehead I simultaneously exhaled and began to inhale when the sponge fell over my mouth and a big glob of thick lather got sucked down presumably into the opening of my wind tube. At that point I tried to cough it out but my lungs were empty, as I had just exhaled. In a panic I tried to inhale, and nothing happened... :shock: This is the part I can't explain. Was the lather preventing the air from flowing in? Was it causing some sort of autonomic reaction causing my epiglottis to obstruct the airway? All I know is that I very nearly blacked out, when at last and with all of my might I inhaled as hard as I could. It was scary as shit, I honestly couldn't breathe. I'm still coughing soap out of my lungs.
