Because swallowing cutlery is totally something you don't notice

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Weird, but at least he's alright now. I was wondering how anyone could swallow a fork.

He said he was told the fork, which he swallowed 10 years ago, would pass through his system naturally so he did not think to mention it to doctors.

Wow!! Swallowed a fork and forgot about it...

What a fortunate person.  At almost any time he could have punctured the stomach lining and died of peritonitis before anyone even knew what was wrong.  Nasty death as well....

With a spoonful of sugar?
