You know that thing under your tongue? Well mine has been swelling up and hurting a good bit lately. I asked my dentist about it and she poked around in there and told me that I have a salivary gland disorder. Wha? She said I may notice that thing under my tongue turn white. If that’s the case to go in because that means there’s a stone stuck in my salivary gland that needs to come out. Why can’t I have a normal dentist appointment?
A few nights later I was getting ready for bed. My under tongue area was all swollen and hurting again. I took a look at it in my makeup mirror and noticed a part of it had indeed turned white from its standard angry swollen red. Well, I’m Southern and us Southern folks are known for some self surgery. It was late at night and I couldn’t wait until morning to find out what was growing in my mouth. So I grabbed my tweezers and out popped what looked like a giant sesame seed. I ran into the bedroom and tried to show CSP but he’d have none of it. I should have taken a picture but I was too busy playing with it. I tried to cut it in half and it shot across the bathroom, never to be seen or heard from again. It was rock hard! I guess that’s why they call it a stone!
