Sue Cameron told us about this one, then Ron transcribed the Joni reference for us. Thanks! She took a step backward to compensate, tripped over a rock, and sat down hard. Her jaws clicked together hard, with her tongue between them – exquisite pain! – and she stopped giggling as if the sound had been cut off with a knife. The very fact of her sudden silence – you turn me off, I'm a radio – seemed funniest of all and she began to giggle again, in spite of the fact that her tongue was bleeding, and tears of pain were streaming from her eyes.
