Frozen. . .

It's interesting.  None of us like to feel frozen.  Whether we are frozen by fear or by cold, we never feel good about being frozen.

And yet, frozen has its advantages.

I am writing this as I wait for the freezing in my mouth to wear off.  It's uncomfortable and unpleasant and soooo much better than the alternatives.  Freezing is less dangerous and intrusive than general anaesthetic and much less unpleasant than enduring dental work without being numb.

The same is true of most kinds of frozen. Frozen is not pleasant, but it is useful.  It saves us from unnecessary pain and reminds us that moving is a pleasure.
