Burning the roof of your mouth sucks. It usually happens with a cup of coffee or a slice of reheated pizza directly from the microwave. You just feel heat and searing pain and feel the roof of your mouth instantly blister up. It’s agony. And it has the added effect of destroying taste buds, making food taste bland and uninspiring for the next few hours. It reminds me of an old joke. Q: What was Helen Keller’s worst day? A: When she burned the roof of her mouth and couldn’t taste anything either. That’s first time I’ve made fun of Helen Keller on this site. That’s pretty impressive.
