Anyway, today I had a tongue-bump, and it was bugging me. So as I sat at my desk quietly coding away, I was messing around with it. Like you mess with anything abnormal in your mouth, a loose tooth, dental work, whatever. I'm incapable of leaving such things alone, and I believe that most people are like me this way.
I came up with the "brilliant" idea of attempting to pop it, in order to make it go away. It was bugging me. I wanted it gone.
Well, popping it is not the solution, it turns out. It was messy, very painful, slightly bloody, and now my tongue-bump is larger and more painful than ever. Darn it all. I wish I knew how to fix it, and better yet, how to keep such things from coming back. Anyone? Please help.
