Rainbow Tongue

I love clear stuff. Clear juices, clear medicines, clear popsicles...these dye-free modern wonders excite me so!

It's not that I'm an organic freak who struggles over food purity issues; And I'm not really a cleanliness freak, but once a child has rejected cherry flavored cough syrup, their clothes have seen their last day.

Meanwhile, the kids' theory is the brighter the better.

They'll create a vacuum between the lollipop and their tongue, then remove it, stick out their tongues, and ask the question that I've heard too many times to count, "What color is my tongue?"

Then I'll say "green," and my reward will be the sound hysterical, satisfied laughter.

So today, I figured if ya can't beat 'em, join 'em. I really love Now & Laters anyway.

I'm sportin' a rainbow tongue.

(I'd post a pic, but I can't think of a dignified way to pose for it!)

Red wine (which I prefer by far over white) makes my tounge an odd shade of deep purple.

Well, there you go.

The mirror! Go to the mirror and snap a pic of your tongue. :D

Dear Key - Since when did you worry about "dignified? WTF is going on? Love, Terry

Heck with the pictures. If that's anything like a "rainbow coalition", I want video.

Well, you could have _called_ me and asked me to take a picture! We could have done it at the local bar and gotten everyone talking. Again. Then I could have made inappropriate suggestions, you could have sucked on a multicolored lolipop in suggestive ways, the kids could have played Stargate pinball and the entire town of (deleted) could have had something to talk about for simply WEEKS.

But noooooo. You refuse to be as naturally entertaining as you know you can be. Spoilsport.
