But I vaguely recalled sailing on a ship from Kagoshima to Okinawa
in 1980, more than thirty years ago. What I think is, yes, there is a big possibility that this tragic event
happens for a reason or just a test of faith.

But then it must be said, we are totally unaware of what the Bajoran stance on death and reincarnation is, it may be that there is a Bajoran form of karma
(based no doubt on the person’s “pagh”) which
could lead to you being born into a better family and so a better caste.

I will alway cut my child’s grapes , tom, and hot dogs until he is 18. It does help to prevent chocking to death it allows air to push the lodged food out of the wind pipe! With out it being cut it’s like a plug.

    Nope 18 years but it was a joke;)

I don’t think I ever considered cutting them. I used to bite them in half and give smallest portion to my daughter when we ate them. She’s 5 now and tries to do this to me by handing me soggy squished grape halves lol.

    That’s adorable! =)

    Nicole Taylor 1 year ago

    Indeed. At least they practice the skill of sharing.

Christi Monson 1 year ago

I know it’s crazy, but I just put the damn things in those net bags until my daughter was able to biter them herself, and I gave her the whole grapes. I remember eating whole grapes my entire life as a kid and never choked.

Agreed with other posters. Doesn’t necessarily work with grapes or grape tomatoes. Even with a sharp knife.

Shari Courtney 1 year ago

My son choked once with a grape and it was the scariest moment in my life. Since then, I always cut grapes

Monica Coralluzzo Roman 1 year ago

I’ve done this with black olives too when chopping them for taco toppings.. much easier for me to chop when they’re already in half

Rachel Cole 1 year ago

I have tried this several times and always fail miserably.

Cherry tomatoes. I’m allergic and the juice always makes my hands itchy.

Hahaha does this actually work..

This technique was shared to save children (and parents) from mess, discomfort and choking. The grape is still in the same length, and DOES NOT terminate the chances for choking.

Raylene Hansen 1 year ago

It’s all about the cherry tomatoes for me! Much easier to eat them cut in half than trying to spear one with your fork, and smacking the person across the table in the head with it.

I’ve always peeled my grapes …. for ALL 3 of my kiddos. Crazy, I know! This year we a little boy at a local elementary school choked on a grape during lunch and died 3 days later because of it. No matter how you cut your grapes, just cut them please! They’ve always scared the crap out of me.

Angela Heid 1 year ago

Wow. Impressive. But I prefer my grapes in liquid form.

Monica Jo Ptacek 1 year ago

If it requires tedious work to cut it so they don’t choke, then they don’t get it until they’re old enough not to choke. Just can’t handle it!

Rebecca Ricci Simon 1 year ago

It changed my grape (and olive and cherry tomato) cutting forever!!!

When you have toddlers and grapes are the perfect size to get stuck in a wind pipe you tend to care a lot about cutting lots of them in half at once lol

Caroline Rooney 1 year ago

You cut them in half to stop little ones from choking. Whole ones can get stuck.
