After the kids had gone to bed and in preparation for Friday’sTwitter #wineparty I poured some Bailey’s into a glass with ice and then decided that I’d rather have it mudslide style so I broke out the blender and pureed it. When my husband walked into the kitchen my face was all screwed up like a corkscrew.
“What’s wrong?” he asked.
“I have sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia” I said, repeating the scientific term for BRAIN FREEZE that we’d learned on the PBS kids show, Ruff Ruffman.
“I have a trick for getting rid of that,” my husband said, referring to the tip we’d learned on the same show that if you press your tongue to the top of your mouth, it helps warm the nerve in your head that causes Brain Freeze.
“What you think that if I press your cock to the roof of my mouth, it’ll warm up the nerve?” I asked him and then added, “they didn’t teach us that on Ruff.”
“If you like it Rough,” my husband said, “That’s okay with me.”
“Mommy?” my 3 year old said, walking into the room.
“Oh sweetie!” I said. “How long have you been standing there?”
