I think we all should get together with our pen pals and practice the Heimlich maneuver on them. Sounds festive to me. :)
Did anyone else see the news item that Dr Henry Heimlich, who invented the maneuver, just used it for the first time? He's in his mid-90's.
Heimlich maneuver plus pen can be very dangerous. Waitress with pen in hand while writing check performed the Heimlich maneuver on a customer and stabbed him to death. (No not real, just a weird thought).
