And below, dear readers, you see an innocent looking popsicle… Yes, it looks harmless indeed – tempting and delicious even, particularly on a hot day. But, I assure you that danger is very present in this scene. The “myth” I had long ago dismissed about one’s tongue and/or lips sticking to a frozen surface (Remember the movie A Christmas Story?) is in fact emphatically not an old wives’ tale, dear readers. Do not make a fool of yourself as I did. If nothing else, it hurts.
