I need to construct a sentence but I don't know the right way: "I don't saw the toothpick on food and get choked"

  • Please, first remove that toothpick from your throat!

    I'm guessing you are not sawing the toothpick. You didn't see it. And it wasn't on food, it was on the food or in the food. As a result, you choked, you did not get chocked (that would mean someone else choked you, which would only happen if they were angry that you did not notice their favourite toothpick...)

Depending on which it was you didn't see, you could say

I didn't see the food on the toothpick, and I choked on it. [the food]


I didn't see the toothpick in the food, and I choked on it. [the toothpick]
