LEGO piece spends two years inside of a child's skull

When I was a kid, something inspired me to jam so much Cheese Whiz up my nose that, even after a trip to the hospital, there's still very likely some hanging around in my sinus cavities, 35 years later.

Anyway here's a story from The Guardian about a young fella that had a piece of LEGO stuck in his face for two years.

From The Guardian:

Seven-year-old Sameer Anwar of Dunedin, in the south of New Zealand, inserted a tiny piece of Lego up his nose in 2018. Sameer's father, Mudassir, and his wife became alarmed when their son told them he had lost a piece of Lego up his nose, and couldn't find it.

The concerned parents took their son to the GP, who was also unable to find, or remove it. The doctor advised them the piece would move through their son's digestive tract, if it had even been there in the first place.

However, the LEGO was not pooped out as predicted.

It stayed in Sameer's skull, largely forgotten about, until, two years later. As Sameer inhaled to take a big hit off the bouquet produced by a plate of cupcakes, his nose began to hurt. Concerned that her child might have inhaled a bit too much cupcake, his mother encouraged the boy to blow his nose.

Boom: LEGO.

The piece that Sameer had hitchhiking inside of his head during the ordeal appeared to be, according to The Guardian, a part of a LEGO figure's arm.
