Something I Thought I'd Never Do

Last night I did something I never thought I'd do.

I actually used to pour scorn on those, some really close friends, who did this once, maybe twice a day.

I figured that doing this wasn't natural, not meant to be.

But last night the opportunity presented itself and where I would usually dismiss the idea as crazy, this time I thought to myself: why not live a little? Take a risk for once and not think about the consequences or what other people think? Make this the start of a new attitude, I told myself.

And to be honest it did feel a bit weird at first, even causing me to feel a little bit sick. But then after a while I began to understand why so many others did it too.

And all the time I never felt like I was doing anything wrong. On the contrary: I never before had felt so clean. If I'm honest, a part of me still thinks it a strange and unnerving thing to do, perhaps even unnecessary. But I will carry on nonetheless.

Last night I did something I never thought I'd do.

Last night I brushed my tongue.
