Lol. Is your son good? I always wanted to take karate lessons, and I looked round one once, but it looked so boring that I dismissed the idea :D

Yes, he is rather good at it, but he works very hard.  He goes to class 4 days a week for 2 hours and then practices at home as well. 

This is a photo of Nic with his Sensei.  This was taken at his first tournament where he came in 2nd place in sparring.

Don't often bite my tongue, but it does happen sometimes (usually when I am tired, and my coordination is impaired).

The trouble is, as you say, when you have bitten your tongue, because it is damaged, so it gets slower getting out of the way when it should, so you are more likely to bite it again, until it gets healed, and back to its usual coordination.

GRRRRRRRRRR.. I bit my tongue once again today!  [:-'(]

Is it simply the mere fact that the tongue gets in the way?

LOL !!..I am sure your tongue is not broke !!...But perhaps being so conscious about biting it is in fact instrumental in you biting it more....comprendez ?

*Cough*. Why?! My french teacher say the word "Merde" all the time! I caught it from her. Why, what does it mean? I mean, I'm not the type of person to go round looking in a French to English dictionary and looking for what $h** is in French..

What I mean is that any attempted domination by a sheep is swamped by the ubiquity of ewe !!....
