i learned a new dance today. fortunately, the choreography isn't too complicated.
to remedy an ice-cream brain freeze; press your thumb onto the roof of your mouth. to divert from the inter-oral pressure, you then stub your right toe. to distract from the metatarsal "ow-ies", flick your ear. to ignore that pain, give yourself a papercut between your thumb and forefinger.
pretty soon you've forgotten about your headache and are ready for another scoop of pralines and cream.
(and look like you just had a handful of electrically charged thumb tacks dumped down your shorts).
