Yeah, but there's a certain 'yuck factor' of seeing someone put something back
in their mouth. And I've had at least one coughing fit in my life where the cough drop I had in for prevention decided to make an unplanned exit. At that point, your options are limited.
I might ask an aide for a fresh one, though.
I wouldn't think that actual tissue
would be yellowish - more likely pink or even red. Loogies, on the other hand (and post nasal drip can give you those with a vengeance!) - right color and
not something to put back in your mouth.
Just looking for horses instead of zebras, yannow?
