Be Happy Today…Stick Your Tongue Out

Sometimes we all need to take a break from the fast pace of our everyday lives and enjoy the simple things that make life great.

Blowing bubbles

Going to the zoo

Visiting a rose garden

Drawing with sidewalk chalk

Long drives with the top down

Ice cream cones

Hearing children’s laughter



Today I encourage everyone to take a moment from the hot days of summer and buy one of my favorite cool refreshing treats…a blue slush.

It’s the treat that keeps on giving. A blue slush helps you cool down, it tastes good, and as an added bonus…it leaves you with a blue tongue. How awesome is that?! Buy yourself or a loved one a blue slush today, and then stick your tongue out at someone.

Watch people’s face light up as you stick your blue tongue out at them. A blue tongue is a smile magnet.


Blue tongues = funny.


Non blue tongue = not funny.


A blue tongue can signify any of the following:

  • You just drank a blue slush.
  • You kissed a Smurf.
  • You are a giraffe.
  • Your supply of oxygen has been cut off.  Dial 911!
  • You just licked blue raspberry wallpaper. Hey! I’m sure there is Willy Wonka blue raspberry wallpaper out there in the world.

Odd fact: I have never experienced a “brain freeze” when eating or drinking something cold. I have no idea what everyone is feeling when they look like they are experiencing a 20 second ice cream headache or brain freeze. I don’t know if I should be happy or sad that I can’t experience a brain freeze. I suppose if I wanted to experience a brain freeze I could just become a career politician.

The scientific name for a brain freeze is sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia.  Wowthat sounds like something you get when listening to 10 straight hours of Owl City-Fireflies while sitting in one position…your whole brain becomes numb. 

Warning: Listening to 10 straight hours of Owl City- Fireflies may actually result in an individual losing their ability to taste. Taste what? Good music.


Enjoy being alive today by drinking a blue slush.  Stick your blue tongue out at someone to show them that you care because you like to see them smile.

The world needs more smiles in it.


Health Warning:  A blue slush like any other great tasting or pleasurable item should only be consumed in moderation.  This blog is not responsible for brain freezes, permanent blue coloring of the tongue, your face getting stuck like Simon Cowell, or getting a paper cut from licking wallpaper.

    I was just thinking today about how fast-paced life has been lately. I really do need to slow down and just enjoy a day slowly and fully. Thank you for the reminder. Also, if my tongue turns permanently blue I reserve the right to blame you wholly.

Share your thoughts and comments with me.
