Tragic Tongue Tale & Terrific Tech

Part 1: Tragic Tongue Tale

So as if I wasn't an abnormal kind of chick already I am currently suffering from numbness of the TONGUE! I had several teeth worked on Monday and today is Thursday and I still can't feel the right side of my tongue or taste anything on that side either. (This is the first time in my life that I have thanked God for a symmetrical tongue) This is distressing, but I am not the kind of girl who remembers to call her Dr. during business hours. So I read this online instead. In case you didn't follow the link summarily someone wrote in a question to Med Help about THEIR tongue problem. The prognosis is this: 

A. The feeling and taste may come back to my tongue. 
B. It might take as long as 6 months!!!
C. It might not EVER return! 

I will keep you updated. 

Here is a collection of self portraits of me with my tongue. I had to include one without my tongue because I looked totally crazy, probably still do . . .I also attempted to frown while my tongue was out to show my disappointment with it . . . this was too difficult . . .

Part 2: Terrific Tech

I also wanted to share some great SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK videos that help teach math concepts. I absolutely love schoolhouse rock! I am so glad that it has made its way to You Tube! I am going to show my kiddos the first one which is on taxes as we study economics. 

They are each just a few minutes long so they would be great as time fillers or intros to lessons! Enjoy!

  9. Hopping over from love2learn2day. We love Schoolhouse Rock too, though as an English major my favorites are the Parts of Speech. BTW, you can download on iTunes as well, but they do cost $ that way. Sorry about your tongue. :(
