Fun fact: I almost drowned while drawing this.
Anti-climactic explanation: I was in a briefing and decided to finish all of the water in my bottle in one huge, super-efficient gulp. Unfortunately, my cheeks bulging with sloshing water, I coughed, accidentally inhaling half of it. My mouth was full of water, my lungs were full of water, my throat burning as I desperately tried to breath, only to cough uncontrollably and take on yet more fluid.
My vision narrowed and my legs kicked spasmodically – is this how it ends for me, dragged to Davy Jones’s Locker in a meeting, because I was too embarrassed to spit water over my clothes and colleagues? With the last remainder of my waning strength, I forced myself to swallow the drink that remained in my mouth, then threw myself, gasping, back into my chair – safe at last. I looked up, to see everybody staring in concern.
