When Live Longer and I learned about B-Y-O-Cup day at 7Eleven we immediately grabbed our wine glasses designed to hold 750 ml (that’s one bottle for those of you who aren’t familiar with the metric system), a flask of vodka, and headed over.
Wanting to make a delightful mix we opted for the pina colada slurpee and, once out of the store, we poured in the vodka and let the drinking begin.
Within minutes we both experienced brain freeze.
“Ew, this brain freeze is painful,” Live Longer said while grabbing her chest and then stating,”It’s too bad we didn’t bring some little umbrellas.”
I had also experienced brain freeze, but felt it closer to my brain, and was surprised Live Longer was feeling it in her chest.
“Wouldn’t that be chest freeze?” I asked.
She was too involved in this chilling experience to respond.
Later, after my pina covodka was gone, I did as I often do, I researched brain freeze, also known as sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia, and learned it can, in fact, cause chest pain.
“Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia?” I thought to myself. “No wonder they just call it brain freeze.”
Sadly, my pina covodka, combined with the mimosas made by BioMom, resulted in a massive sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia that lasted for several hours – luckily, I slept through most of those hours.
Live Longer was feeling the same pain and informed me, “We can’t do sugars.”
“We would never make it on a cruise ship,” I replied.
“We could, we would just have to drink wine,” she said.
Always thinking! Looks like we’ll have another reason to hold on to the 750 ml glasses. Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia you cannot keep a good girl down!
