Truly, biting down on one's own tongue is a rather painful experience. The actual sensations are mercifully blurred out during the moments following the bite, blanked away by the waves of pain which keep on washing over the tongue. And then the numbness sets in, and you start feeling like your teeth are going to drop off. Damn that hot rice, now everytime I look into the mirror and display my tongue, I see white slices of tongueflesh still clinging to that reddish spot on the tongue where my teeth bit down on last night. Eating is a pain, and pronouncing words with letters like 'h', 's' and a few others more evoke deep sensations of pain. Well yay hurray, maybe this is a good time to grow thin.
