Tonsil stones

Will found this article about tonsil stones this morning. Upon reading it, I had an a-ha moment. I get those gross things.

Sometime last summer my throat was sore, and while waiting at a stop light, I looked at my tonsils like I often do, hoping it wasn't turning into strep throat. On my right tonsil there was a whitish patch. When I got home I pushed on the tonsil, and it popped out. I swiped it off of my tonsil with a cotton swab, and looked at it. I pressed on it with my thumb and forefinger, and it wasn't hard although it had felt hard in my tonsil. I didn't think anything more of it and went on my merry way.

Months later if happened again. No big deal, I cleaned them (there were three this time) out. Done with it. I am almost positive that I had them three times in the past year.

Interesting, but not problematic.

I get them ALL the time. I mean a lot. I never have said anything cause It didnt hurt me and it is kinda gross to tell people about it.

I never knew what those were!!! I cough one up every now and then and could not figure it out. I thought maybe dried up mucus stuff from my lungs after a cold but the actual cause kinda grosses me out more then what I was really thinking!!
