I have never had a "brain freeze" - the headache people get behind their noses and eyes when they drink too much ice-cold liquid at once. I remember seeing a preview for Shallow Hal a couple of years ago and wondering what the hell Gwyneth Paltrow's character was complaining about. On Friday, while eating spinach and artichoke dip at Molly Branigan's downtown, I asked Matt about it, and he tried to explain brain freezes to me. I drank as much ice-cold water as I could, but didn't feel any sensation like the one he described. Being from Australia, land of the stinking hot, I've drunk plenty of slushies in my time, too, and never had a brain freeze.

Aha, this site states that only 30% of the population experiences them, so I guess I shouldn't feel so left out.

I thought it had something to do with my inability to burp.
