Bernie Sanders is the best! VOTE!
I had mine removed (along with my adenoids which incidentally grew back, ew) when I was in the first grade, I want to say it was like a week or two long recovery when my mom was forcing me to consume ice pops against my will to help cool my painful sore throat. Then I took them (the recently removed organs) to school for show and tell, per my older sister's urging. I'm pretty sure I never looked in the brown paper bag containing the jars myself.
