Andrew Freaks...

when he wakes with a blue tongue.  Cobalt blue!  When asked about what he had eaten, he replied nothing blue.

He was shocked when he brushed his teeth and blue hit the sink instead of the red of the toothpaste.  An immediate report was made to the adults.  We examined, we oohed, we awed and Andrew was not amused.  I offered him ten bucks to let me take a picture.  He refused.  Papa was then offered ten bucks to pry Andrew's mouth open so I could take a picture.  Andrew disappeared.

After much serious thought, the blue tongue mystery remains.  No cotton candy nor snow cones nor early blue Easter candy nor and colored products had been consumed.

I googled blue tongue.   It's a serious disease that does affects cud-chewing animals but not pigs and young men.  Mark that one off.  Since Andrew's health was not affected, we did not worry.

Papa mentioned, April Fool's Day may have arrived late.  Andrew searched the pantry til he found blue food dye and blamed innocent Papa of squirting blue dye in his mouth as he slept.

After reviewing the food Andrew had eaten the day before, I came up with the instant dark chocolate pudding theory.  My logic:  All colors are used to make black, dark chocolate, food clings to the taste buds of the tongue.  Since he did not brush his teeth before bed time. I believe all colors disappeared with the pudding except blue which stayed on his tongue.

Sounds good.

I did place some blue clean tablets in Andrew's bathroom today.  I warned him not to drink the water from the toilet bowl due to the possible return of the blue tongue malady.

Andrew's not laughing.

Since the blue brushed off into the sink it's external instead of an internal health issue.

I'd vote for the ornery Mr. and a late prank! Heeeheheheh!

Right after Tidy Bowl came out my Mom used it in the toilet. Dad went in to relieve himself and yelled, "Hey Wanna, come quick...I just peed blut!!!" He thought he was on death's door! :o)

But will he be better at brushing his teeth before bed?

Well I've heard of Blue Men, Blue Buffalo, Blue Book, Blue Cross and Blue Tooth, but never Blue Tongue.

Perhaps that should be marketed, too?

lol!
