I got up this morning as I usually do and was getting ready for work. As I was putting on my make-up, I noticed something in my mouth (you know, how the mouth has to be opened as the make-up is being applied. I opened up my mouth all the way, and this is what I saw:

In case you can't really see it, here's a closer-up shot (yeah, I know I look stupid in the above was early):

My tongue was totally and completely BLACK! The pictures really do not do it justice. It appeared much blacker in person.

Anywho, it scared the crap out of me. I started running through everything I had eaten the previous day and prior to bed. I did brush my teeth before bed, and as I remembered, my tongue was nice and pink when I last checked it at 10:30pm the previous night. What the hell happened to it?

I didn't know if should contact the doctor or what. But I decided to do a quick google search, and lo and behold, there is a condition called black tongue. Who knew? I sure didn't. Check out THIS to learn the cause of my black tongue.

No worries, though! The black tongue is no more. I scrubbed the hell out of it with my tooth brush, and it was all pink and new again.
