Dear Amelia,
Do you look like the sort of girl who’d stick a “sparkle” up her nose?
The doctor at the hospital’s Emergency Department didn’t seem to think so.
After the obligatory 3½-hour wait, he got your mum to hold one of your nostrils at a time and blow really hard into your mouth to clear out everything in your nasal passages.
Sadly, it was all snot and no sparkle and most of it ended up on your Mum’s face.
When you and Mum and Dad got home and you were still screaming, “Mummy sparkle ouch”, your Mum stuck her little finger up your nose and slid out a sequin.

As she said when her ordeal was over: Imagine if you’d stuck something up your bum.
