Show Description
Shep tells the story of being a kid and their involvement in kid mythology. There were the believers and non-believers. He talks about myths such as the poisonous inside of a golf ball, the indelible pencil, bats flying into your hair, swallowing gum will make your stomach stick together,and the tongue myth. The tongue myth stated that if, on a very cold day, you placed your tongue on a metal object, it would stick forever. So one day on the way to school Shep, Flick, Schwartz, and Bruner start talking about this and as they pass an iron telephone pole, start to dare one another to try it. Dares led to double dares and then to the double dog dare! Flick walks up and places his tongue right on the pole and it's stuck!! The rest of the kid's run to class leaving Flick behind. Miss Shield's, their teacher finds out, and the fire department is called to solve the problem.
