Warning: Hearsay ahead
This isn't something I experienced, but a pass me down from my parents, uncles, and a few of their collective friends. They're all from a fairly
small town in Texas, and all of them have a pretty similar story.
It starts with them being woken up in the middle of the night by their parents, and told they stuck something up their nose. In the case of my mother,
it was allegedly a bean. They're rushed off to see a doctor from out of town, who promptly does something with an instrument to their nose, and says
they can't find it. The 'doctor' then puts them under anesthesia and they wake up the next day without their parents being able to remember the
Now, this is all hearsay, but the people that have relayed the story to me aren't the type to lie, and the story has remained solid with all of them
since. I've had it retold both in groups and independently and they all follow the format above. I used my others because its the one I remember
best, but its more or less formulaic. The unusual doctor is noteworthy because they're all from a small town, and they only had a doctor that made
housecalls at the time, with the nearest real hospital being in Houston.
So, I present this to you in the hopes of anyone here being able to thread me along to anything they might have heard or read thats similar to this.
If it helps, these took places in the late 1950s and possibly early 1960s in East Texas.
