Is this really supposed to happen in Alabama?

20th November 2006

I had just scooped 2 nice sized scoops of Edy’s Espresso Chip ice cream into my bowl. Of course there was some residual ice cream on the metal scooper. So I went to lick it off… and my lip stuck to the outside of the scoop. Yep, I pulled it off and yep, my lip is raw and missing small patches of skin. It sounds worse than it is, but it’s ANNOYING and sore. Brian laughed and chastised me. He reminded me of the movie A Christmas Story and the little boy getting his tongue stuck on the cold flag pole. And yes, I do remember one of my sisters (won’t mention which one) doing something similar outside our house in Wisconsin. But an ice cream scoop? And in Alabama? Who’d have thought?!?

    Awesome, Steve! Keep me updated with how the training’s going. My last goal for this year is to try and bring my bike odometer up to 10,000 miles for the year. Only 1,340 more miles to go…
