Did you know the tongue is one of the fastest-healing body parts?
I only bring this up because last night I burned my tongue badly enough that I practically lost feeling in it. (Damn you, Spinach and Artichoke Dip appetizer!)
It still wasn’t healed 24 hours later. When Jodi pulled a steaming hot pizza out of the oven tonight, my tongue recoiled in terror, and attempted to leap down my throat to save itself. A negotiator had to be called in to talk it out of my esophagus.
The pizza was quite good, after I waited 15 minutes for it to cool. Jodi waited about 30 seconds, and promptly burned her mouth.
