If you’re like me, at one point or another you have over-estimated your spice tolerance and set your mouth on fire. My most traumatic experience has to be the catfish stew I had at my wife’s folks home (might explain why I sweat a little bit when I hear catfish). I probably drank two of water to no avail. My wife might have said something about me not being a real man but I was too busy looking for bread to quench the fire in my mouth.
Apparently reaching for a cold water might not be the best solution. Next time you’re in this situation, try one of the solutions listed below.
