I bit my tongue really hard last night. Harder than I ever have before. So hard, in fact, that my teeth punctured the skin and I can see blood in three places on top (and I think there’s at least one spot on the bottom).
Thankfully it’s not actively bleeding, there’s just blood where the cuts are. And, much to my surprise and relief, it doesn’t sting or hurt much (unless I bump the cuts against my teeth, which I do quite frequently, of course).
I was surprised at how hard I bit myself. It was hard enough for me to hear the soft crunch of raw flesh. I don’t mean hear it like I hear someone’s voice when they talk to me. I mean hear it like when you’re eating potato chips. The kind of “hear it” that you hear through your jaw bone. It was pretty gross.
I can’t figure out what my tongue was doing between my teeth in the first place. This isn’t one of those, “nipped the edge” type of bites. I really crunched down in the middle of my tongue.0 People like this. Be the first!
