Have you ever wondered…?

Have you ever wondered why, when a drink goes down the wrong way and you’re choking, people ask if you need water?  What does THAT do?!  The reality is, you need air!  So are they trying to help, or finish the job?  I don’t get it.

Always, when I was a kid, if I was gasping and coughing, it was, “Here’s some water!”  Have I missed something here?  Imagine getting food stuck in your esophagus and people saying, “Quick!  Get some spaghetti!”

How is it that common responses can be so uncommonly bizarre?
