I've often joked that Helen's tongue feels like 40 grit sandpaper, and that she is trying to torture me with her licking. Well, it finally happened... Yesterday, I took her to my Mom's house for a visit and had her on my lap. I was trying to get her to hold still for a few minutes, and the only way she was content to sit in one spot was if she could lick my arm. So, I decided I would just sit through the pain and let her lick me so I could finish what I was doing. It hurt. A lot. At times I was wincing from the pain. I was only holding her like that for about 10 minutes, and no joke, today I have a road rash on my arm where she was licking me. She literally took the top layer of my skin off with her razor tongue! I hope I never pass out or go unconscious alone at home or I'm bound to end up permanently disfigured! Intruders beware!
