I’m not worried about that. I’m not dumb enough to stick my tongue on any frozen surface. Or really any surface. (Okay, any non-female surface.)
However, there are frozen things that I must touch. More often than not, those things come out of the freezer. I make cookies for work sometimes at work from frozen cookie dough. Our industrial freezer is so cold that it’ll turn any surface into skin-stick central. I literally cringe at the thought of this happening. What would I do, lug around a box of frozen cookies attached to my hand for the rest of my life? I’m too young for that!
The same with ice cubes. If I ever touch ice cubes, I make sure that my skin is completely dry before doing so. I simply can’t stand the feeling of ice sticking to my fingers, even for a millisecond.
This is part irrational fear (getting poison ivy in your eye) and part tactile discomfort (getting your fingernail caught in a cotton ball). The combination of the two makes me queasy.
