Swallowing is mainly for the purpose of getting food and liquid from our mouth to our stomach.

But sometimes accidents happen and you swallow something that you definitely were not supposed to.

Maybe you accidentally swallowed your retainer one night.

Or you wolfed down a piece of food that contained a ~surprise object~.

Maybe you ate one of those hollow chocolate eggs as a kid, along with the little toy that came inside it.

Perhaps the object you swallowed sent you to the hospital, where you ended up seeing it on an X-ray.

Yup, that's an engagement ring.

For example: One time I swallowed a penny because I heard putting it your mouth makes a thermometer read a higher temperature and I wanted to stay home sick from school.

Turns out the "penny trick" didn't even work, but the good news is that the coin was small enough to pass through without me noticing.
