There's really a lot of wonderful stuff they teach Boy Scouts.
Stuff like the Heimlich Maneuver.
It comes in wonderfully handy when a parent starts choking violently during supper.
It's even more handy when that parent happens to be your parent.
So proud of my little brother, BZP member krazyrapdude, for saving my dad's life tonight! :,)
(Dad's ok and resting at home - he's pale and shaken and went a while without oxygen because of how lodged the food was in his throat, but he is doing ok.)
