Hair In Emma's Tongue

Today, I was driving to the store when Emma started crying. I look in my mirror and she had a very concerned face. I asked what was wrong. She informed me that there was a hair stuck in her tongue and it was hurting her. I thought she was meaning she had a hair wrapped around her tongue, so I asked if she could feel her tongue still. She informed me that she could and that it wasn't wrapped, it was stuck in her tongue. As I was calming her down and letting her know that I would check it as soon as we got to Smith's, I was wondering how in the world could a hair get stuck in her tongue? I have had hair in my mouth, but never in my tongue?
So we finally get there and I go around the car to check. I look and sure enough there is a hair stuck in her tongue (kind of like a hair splinter...Debra knows about those). As far as I could see, the hair was still attached to her head. I pull it and it breaks off, still with a short piece stuck. Now Emma is pulling away because it hurts trying to talk to me with her tongue out of her mouth as Madi is watching intensely. I finally get a hold of it again and pull it out as Emma is trying to tell me to stop. Then she takes a big sigh of relief as I got it all out this time and the pain ceases.

That is seriously one of the craziest things I've heard.

Oh my goodness how did she get a hair stuck in her tongue?? I know hair dressers get them in there feet sometimes.

I have to say it is one of the weirdest things I have seen. She said she could feel the hole where it was even the next day.
