one of the other definitions for epiglottis was very very very wrong. it's actually the flap covering the tube going down to your lungs. It opens so that air can get down, but closes so food doesn't get down into your lungs.
"Mother, I have a horrible cough. There must be a whole crapload of mucus on my epiglottis."
