Silliness: Tongue Awareness
I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the tongue, which is prehensile muscular organ that most of us have in our mouths. It includes four muscles that are attached to bones and four quite strong muscles that are only attached to the organ itself. Those muscles are supplied by massive blood vessels that you can easily see if you look underneath. Your tongue grows right out of the floor your mouth, it is covered with little nipple-like structures, it is soaked in spit, and it is THERE ALL THE TIME even when you're eating or speaking or singing or sleeping. It's pretty much right there in the way of everything 24/7. Chances are pretty good that you are either moving or clenching your tongue in your mouth right now as you read this sentence.
Okay, that's all for now so you can go back to whatever it was you were doing. Thanks for coming to my tongue talk.
