Dearest Tongueologists ?

See the tip of this tongue ? As a sheepy I of course like to taste things...my tongues assists me in this endeavor !



Nice eh ?

But why oh why oh why does it hurt when I just place the tip of this tongue into a fizzy drink ?

There I am expecting refreshment joy and luff and all I get is painful needle stabbing agony !...This upsets me deeply and I have lodged a formal complaint with my mother-in-law.....because she uses her tongue to talk so much, hence, she must be an expert !....

In the mean time, your tongue twisting linguistical oral orientated answers would me most appreciated !

You have been being careful with your weight eh Kind Sir.. do well as I recall.. Perhaps you have stopped drinking so much soda and your tongue is recovering from the abuse of the previous life's soda experience and now your tongue is more aware because you have been healing your old damaged taste buds, so now when you partake of sparkly fizzy goodness the sensation is like that of when your buds were new Kind Sir!

I would think lots of acidic things like fine bubbly fizziness might desensitize the buds by actually causing the tips to burn from the acid....damaging to an extent the lovely buds that are perched upon such a fine specimen of a tongue! LOL..

Hey BTW I did not know Sheepies had two tongues!
