All Canadians (except maybe southern B.C.) know the bane that is licking freezing metal objects. It’s less of a clear and present danger during the summer, but it’s hot, and the freezer looks so comforting. The frost is just begging to be licked, but you know if you do, you’ll end up in the moron section of the local newspaper.
Incidently, the Internet knows how to get a tongue off of a frozen surface. Liberally pour warm water until everything warms up enough to pull off the tongue. Do not use boiling water. Hilariously enough, it recommends using urine as a last-ditch solution. Lollerskates.
So this week staycation I’ve been on has been rather unrelaxing. People are all like “What? You have a week off? I don’t think that’s fair, so I’ll give you a brazillion tasks to do.”
