At supper last night, DD7 asked about choking and what causes a person to choke. My DH explained that it happened when something gets stuck in your throat and you can't breathe. She looked at him like he had three heads. "But how does your trachea get blocked when your food goes down your esophagus?" He turned to me with a look of 'you are on your own'. I began explaining that there is a flap of tissue over the trachea and she cut me off. "Oh, you mean the epiglottis! So sometimes food can get through if it is open. I get it. Thanks!"

So much for my anatomy lesson.
