I will crawl, there's things that are worth giving up I know; but I won't let this get me, I will fight. You live the life you're given with the storms outside. Somedays all I do is watch the sky.

user picture Erin: Don't LICK envelopes. That's so nasty, plus you're going to get a cockroach egg in your TONGUE! dec 14 2009
user picture larissa: ok urban myth. shut up you cannot do that. that is like eating a watermelon seed and having it grow in your tumtum. not possible.
user picture Erin: I will go FIND you the article. Watch out. Somebody had mailed this to me. I cannot vouch for it's authenticity but worth a thought nevertheless. [mail starts]A woman was working in a post office in California. One day she licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very day the lady found a cut on her tongue. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue. She went to the doctor, and they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was not sore or anything. A couple of days later, her tongue started to swell more, and it began to get really sore, so sore, that she could not eat. She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done. The doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live cockroach crawled out!!!! There were cockroach eggs on the seal of the envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because of her saliva. It was warm and moist... This is a true story that was reported reported on CNN. Andy Hume wrote: Hey, I used to work in an envelope factory. You wouldn't believe the....things that float around in those gum applicator trays. I haven't licked an envelope for years!" I used to work for a print shop (32 years ago) and we were told NEVER to lick the envelopes. I never understood why until I had to go into storage and pull out 2500 envelopes that were already printed and saw several squads of cockroaches roaming around inside a couple of boxes with eggs everywhere. They eat the glue on the envelopes. Maybe it's not true. BUT STILL. I will let you lick my envelopes from now on.
user picture larissa: you better believe i will, because it tastes good. i wonder if cochroaches taste that good. i have heard it, too, but i drink too much hot water and eat too many sour patchies so they would die, instantly. sick. but i like the taste.
