cuz it will get stuck and then have to have warm water poured over it and many many layers of skin will be pulled off.....much bleeding will occur and people will panick and it will end by your principal having to drive you and your sisters home.
This is something I would have thought that Hailey would have done. Nope. It was Emily. Her and her best friend who is one of our neighbors sons, dared each other to do it. He was smarter than she and admited to having tried it on the weekend and it got stuck but he managed to pull it off with little skin loss. Emily apparently has the same mentality as her father and is a go big or go home kind of gal. She didn't just stick the tip of her tongue on the frozen * read -22 degrees with it being -38 with the wind factor * poll, she stuck her whole tongue on it. Yup her nose was squashed against the poll.
Morgan called me crying telling me that the principal was driving them all home, it happened after school. I panicked a bit thinking it must be really bad to have to get a ride home from the principal. He just wanted to make sure the bleeding stopped and so they missed the bus. What a great man, his wife is really sick with cancer right now and so my family is really praying for them. She had blood all down her jacket and in her hair, quite the sight and I guess she had been quite brave but when getting a hug from mommy she finally broke down. Something about having your mommy hold you makes you feel safe to finally cry I think..... I sure understand that one!! It stings her to eat or drink but I think it will be even better in the morning.
I wonder if the other girls have learned the same lesson as Emily did but I wouldn't be surprised if the little ones do the same thing at some point! Leave it to 2 new kids in this rural Northern town to dare each other to touch the frozen polls with their tongues...... the local kids must have been thinking "what idiots".....uh hem!!! city slickers!
It is -30 this morning!! oh my it is cold!
