Brayden's tonuge incident

My 10 year old son, Brayden, thought it would be a good idea to put his tongue on a metal pole, in the middle of winter, on the way to school this week.......
Not quite sure why but obviously it was not pretty and I didnt find out about it until after school that night.
They were walking to their bus stop which is 2 blocks away from the house and Brayden got his tongue stuck on the pole and Harmony ended up having to RIP the skin off and leave it on the pole so they could get to the bus on time. It was "gushing (Harmonys words) blood" so they had to get a napkin from the bus driver.
The picture has Braydens blood all over the pole and if you look close you can see at the bottom of his tongue in the middle there is the start of new, fresh skin. Then I asked him to "pose" by the pole and he was VERY careful to not touch it while he was posing for the picture, lol.
Im guessing this came about cuz we told him not to do this and that his tongue would stick to it, but as we all know, kids will do what we tell them not to. Not sure if its cuz of course as parents we are idiots and know nothing or if its just putting the idea into their head, either way, we had a big laugh at his expense and hopefully there will be no more of that!!!

Boy what a way to start the day !!! I know what that feels like because I did the same thing when I was in grade school and so did my brother and sister !! we didn't believe that your tounge would stick--it just didn't make sense or sound possible--but yes--it WAS TRUE--sometimes you just have to listen or find out the hard way! Now they have a great story to tell !!!!
