“The whole family seems to be so content as I choke off to the side… this is the epitome of my life. No big deal. I am alive and well now – no thanks to any of my relatives :)”

The only one who clearly saw this was the photographer and even he or she was just as oblivious as everyone else in the room. Glad the little girl survived, no thanks to those around her!
I nearly choked looking at this picture! Hysterical! this happened to me while eating Taco bell nachos.. got a tortilla chip stuck in my throat.. choked and couldn’t breathe all the while my mother and sisters kept piling in their burritos watching me! Quick thinking I gave myself the Heimlich up came the chip and basically the story of my life..don’t wait for my family do it myself! lol this story looks all too familiar!
LMAO at this one, and I’m glad you’re okay…
This reminds me of the time I almost drowned while my family laughed at me from the shore.
In retrospect, funny… at the time, not so much.
Bahahaha! I love this. This could be me! I’m glad you lived!
Guessing you are a middle child too. This could have been me!
Do you know how much it hurts to try and not make a sound while laughing at this photo?? My mother just came in the room, and thankfully that meant I could let it all out. I didn’t want her to hear me laughing and wonder what was going on in here!! I sure needed a good laugh, too!!
OMG I laughed for a good 15mins straight at this pic. I’m crying just thinking about it! Totally made my day!!
This is EPIC! I adore it. And I am so glad the little girl is OK.
i’m sure they wanted to help, but they were told not to spoil the picture or get in the way of the picture. it’s not that they don’t love you, it’s that they really wanted that picture.
I almost wet my pants laughing at this, I am so sorry,I have been wondering what the family said when they saw this,did they notice you finally?
“oh honey! hold still!! Let me get this picture! K now run along…”
Omg!!! I laughed till I cried, literally! Poor kid, but it did make a great picture!
hahahaah this picture is great, I can’t stop laughing at it!!
“Oh, Annie….cut the drama, pick your plate back up and eat those frikkin’ rutabagas!!!”
I love that the little girl sucking her thumb has such big hair!
just put some ‘tussin in there!
add some water and shake the bottle for ‘mo tussin’!
I would be right there by your side in a second, and I don’t even know you! Poor kid!
Did someone stray from the Recipe for the Proscuitto Pinwheel?? Poor young Lisa will someday grow up and be required to contribute at the adult level.
This picture had me laughing and crying at my desk.
Daphne-that’s hilarious! Your regulation casserole dish!
It looks like the other child is smoking.
Is there something in her cupped hand????
I think it’s a cashew she removed from her own airway when she had to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on herself.
And this is what happens if you don’t use a regulation casserole dish. You’ve been warned.
I come from a similar clan. They ignore even your imminent demise but when they have a problem, it’s a Federal case.
Funny! Not only is everyone ignoring the hand clutching the throat, someone’s actually taking a picture. And we all know it’s impossible to look good in a picture where you’re choking.
“Shut up, Meg!”
The man in the back is looking over as if to say, “hey cut that racket down over there, the adults are trying to talk”
If her childhood was anything like mine, it was her brother taking the pic of her choking, just waiting…
OH NO, after one more look I am sure that I see a “regulation casserole dish size” on the table. If so that really explains why no one is paying attention to the little girl. As we all know “regulation casserole dishes” are very rare!
OMG….. I can’t stop laughing. I am sorry that this happened but the pix is just too funny.
Glad your OK now.
“Annie! Annie! Are you alright?”
Hahahahaha *crying* hahahaha amazing really noone cares a bit! Oh that’s epic!
The family knew how to handle violet’s latest bid for attention.
Woman eating cake is mentally composing her hysterically cheery Xmas newsletter.
They were probably thinking “Aw, just take a picture, it’ll last longer (than her anyway).”
Squirt a little Windex in there, you’ll be fine!
And a Marney is born.
I feel bad I’m laughing at your expense … but I’m glad you’re ok today : )
At least the kid seems to know the international sign for choking….Mom, maybe not so much. Or her macaroni salad was just to enticing.
The woman in he chair looks exactly like my cousin. Maybe it is? Poor choking girl, lol, why were they taking a pic of it?
I feel bad that I giggled at this one!
Who in the heck was taking the picture?
way to capture the moment
It’s not easy being a middle child…I feel your pain sister.
You’re turning violet Violet!
You poor thing! That picture is hilarious though.
HAHAHA, i agree!
Awww! You are a big deal, I care!
ignorance- thy name is “bliss”…
ah, walk it off. You’ll be fine
lol… too funny.
Oh the poor kid. Who would even be taking a picture of this special moment?
good thing your guardian angel was hovering over your head.
this is great….sorry…glad you’re ok…but I just picture the pictures motion by motion….
Seems like she’s turning a bit purple.
