Merry Christmas

After all the Christmas Eve meal preparations were finished and right before enjoying a wonderful evening holiday feast I bit my tongue. Not just a little. Clean through. Ouch! Sometime in the next few days I will swallow again and end this pain-induced fast.

I don't recommend tongue surgery as an annual Christmas Eve tradition to move the focus off all that (healthy) food and think about the blessings that come from the birth of Jesus Christ, Savior of the World, but it worked for me. May you have a wonderful and joyous Christmas.

We're on holiday at the Top of the Morning if you hadn't noticed. Until the New Year when we plan to release a number of posts dedicated to a happy 2009, all of us here at TOTM wish you and yours the very best and a warning during this festive holiday banquet season.

Chew with care.

And you think I'm accident prone?

I didn't fall on a guatemalan. I didn't turn back from the summit. I didn't trip on the steps at Tikal. I didn't get stuck in the median of a busy street in Guatemala City.

I bit my tongue.

Ok David, that comment leaves the door open to so many things I could say. But I'll just bite my tongue and be nice instead. Woops, I mean I'll just sit on my hands and not type any of them.

And I am sure Noelle has a perfectly good reason for all of those things.

Be grateful that tongues heal quickly, but with a clean through bite, you'll be happy in a week or so!
If you're going for an injury, go for gusto man!
Hope it heals quickly for ya!
