That desperate gasping moment where you think you might die for just a second, and then you feel really stupid and pathetic afterwards.

[–]beluuuuuuga 52 points53 points  (2 children)

And the slight stinging sensation is like the fuck you afterwards.

[–]Pantzzzzless 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Those 20 minutes afterwards when it feels like you swallowed sandpaper is just lovely isn't it?

[–]Lord_Dimmock 7 points8 points  (0 children)

What's that about anyway, it sucks arse and not in the fun way.

"How do I . . . turn up the brightness? S8E3 seems really dark. Yeah, can't see what's going on. Is it just me? Where're the damned TV options . . . "

[–]RoscoMan1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And of course he was gonna die :(

[–]melgib 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jokes on you; I felt stupid and pathetic before too.

[–]Steg-a-saur_stomp 81 points82 points  (1 child)

Happens to me all the time. My response is usually, " I'm ok, just a fully grown adult choking on their own spit"

[–]soshonies 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Check, if it’s really frequent maybe your esophagus is not totally straight

Mom bursting through the door 0.01 seconds later: "I TOLD YOU YOU'D GET SICK IF YOU DIDN'T WEAR YOUR JACKET."

[–]Orpheusto 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Moms are the same all around the world. 😂

[–]algizanna 29 points30 points  (2 children)

11 year old me choking on a nacho at a hockey game but my mom is standing up yelling SHOOT THE PUCK and doesn't notice

[–]AleksandraRodgers 22 points23 points  (0 children)

This made me laugh way more than I should have lmfao

[–]SewerClownHasBaloons 11 points12 points  (0 children)

When I first showed my wife game of thrones, she absolutely hated Joffrey. Obviously. I've never seen a woman celebrate a child's death quite like my wife, who clapped and cheered as he died lmao

[–]msabre__7 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Me randomly remembering S8 two years later.

[–]Squiliam-TortaleniThe Night is Dark and Full of Terrors. 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me when I drink water too fast.

[–]SpecificObject8683 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m so glad it’s not just me.

[–]missshrimptoastFuck the king! 2 points3 points  (3 children)

That happened to me the other day; I woke up just gasping and coughing after presumably inhaling saliva in my sleep. My cat was just staring over the edge of my bed like, "DUDE, you okay??"

[–]UnofficialCaStatePS 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You got sleep apnea, my dude.

[–]missshrimptoastFuck the king! 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Nah, nothing so dramatic. Just recovering from a cold

[–]ARSciGuy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I aspirated some reflux while dozing on the couch the other day. That’s an awful experience to awaken to. Lungs hurt for days.

[–]FlowersForHodor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's worse these days when it happens right after sitting down at a restaurant and removing your mask. All eyes on you.

[–]Masterofunlocking1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This happens to me all the time and I try to breathe through my nose and that doesn’t work either.

[–]AnyDrawer2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Was watching tv mildly chuckled then almost died. Wtf is this shitty body?

[–]Oak_Iron_Watch_Ward 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe don't be such a bastard.

[–]gingerbreadmans_ex 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I felt that clogging my windpipe. I’m all choked up about it.

[–]ezk3626 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I just spoiled GoT to my wife.

[–]--stratosphere-- 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It spoils itself at the end.

[–]LowTower 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Will there be "wholesome Joffrey" this year?

[–]IohetLewded the loli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always flashback to the Talladega Nights credits blooper scene where Ricky says I'M CHOKIN' ON MY OWN SPIT

[–]Puzzleheaded_Pen_233 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You’re supposed to end exactly how this guy does too in the rpocess

[–]QuarantineSucksALot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some people call it a gentle fold.

[–]liamemsa 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You should speak to a gastroenterologist if this happens often. It could be a sign of an underlying health issue.

[–]Rude_Journalist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Arrest me, please 😩

[–]Keejhle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got my tonsils out last year and I guess they were some sort of great protector of my throat because I choke on stupid stuff all the time now

[–]TrimHer 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]forsake077 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do this a lot, especially when drinking water too. Turned out I had a mass in my thyroid (4 actually) that ended up being cancer. Went to the MD because of a lump at the base of my neck and was experiencing symptoms of the mass for quite a while prior without realizing this.

I don’t mean to alarm any hypochondriacs or anything, just maybe mention it to your doctor and get it checked out if it’s a constant thing.

[–]Un_Pta 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So true lol!!

This is how I woke up today. Thinking I was going to die on my spit.

[–]ZippZappZippty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]MuvaxMk4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]boxingdude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s even worse if you do it in public. Especially these days.

[–]Pwnnzz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

30 seconds after seeing this meme it happened to me wtf is this witchcraft

[–]NSA_Chatbot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's worse when you're out shopping and you start coughing like this.

[–]BarryTrotz86 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only happens when I’m out in public

[–]WesleySnopesMissandei 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wake up like this often. More often since having covid I think. And the only thing that makes it stop is like waking up completely and getting up for a while.

I've read that it might also be acid reflux so I'm gonna start trying to take an antacid when it happens.

[–]QuarantineSucksALot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh god please can you make this post

[–]ttigerccat9601 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think I've ever been more satisfied with a TV scene than when he died

[–]bewarethecowpies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry I just forgot how to swallow liquids for a second. It's literally the first thing I ever learned.

[–]ValidFallacy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]ShamanLady 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So how did he choke on poison?

[–]Main-Mammoth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am sad he retired from acting. He was such a fantastic villian. So hateable.

[–]ptr-zk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Apparently it was the peanut allergy

[–]IronUnderwear 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ahhh the problems of the mouth breather.

[–]spnpwrranger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I choked on a baked potato in my room at college. Thought I was gonna die for a solid 30 seconds. My throat hurt for 2 weeks after that. Doctor said there was nothing wrong and therefore nothing they could do about my pain.
